METHUEN — Will Carpenter continued his dominance on the mound this summer, as the former Whittier lefty struck out 10 with no walks in leading Haverhill Post 4 to a 3-0 shutout over Methuen.
Carpenter yielded just two hits and a hit batter in 5.2 innings of work. Tyler McDonald came on in relief to retire all four batters he faced to notch the save.
The offense was lead by Andrew Williams (2-4, 2 runs), Kyle O’Neill (RBI single) and Carpenter who helped his own cause with a pair of hits.
Jack Anthony had a double and tossed three shutout innings while Devin Melia registered Methuen’s only other hit.
Haverhill improves to 10-0 and travels to Andover Wednesday at 6 p.m. Methuen falls to 3-6 and hosts Danvers today at 6 p.m.
Andover Post 8 romps
Ty Walsh tossed a three-hit shutout, striking out six as Andover Post 8 Legion downed Saugus Post 210, 10-0, in five innings on Monday.
Andover cruised to victory, thanks to a seven-run first inning. Eleven batters went to the plate in the frame and each hit in the inning was a single. Matt Potts (2 for 3), Gavin Kelsey (1 for 1) and Henry Grebe (2 for 2) all had two-RBI singles in the first.
Nolan Schirmer (2 for 3) also had two RBIs in the game, while Josh Gruenberg had a triple and scored a run. Andover posted two more in the second and one in the fourth to run-rule Saugus.
Post 8 (3-5-1) will host Haverhill at 6 p.m. on Wednesday.
