The Angel Baseball Giants 19-U team soared past Beverly last evening 7-2 to advance to the semi-final round of the LTA Tournament. A strong pitching performance from Nicky Powers, great team effort at the plate and strong team defense were the keys to victory.
Powers went 6 strong innings giving up just 2 runs to a good hitting beverly team. Hits by Jake Crowley, Jovan Henriquez, Hector Nunez, Nicky Powers, Joe Talent, Jamel Vilamont and Marc Woodman got the giants out to a 5-0 lead.
The Beverly team spent most of the night trying to catch up to Powers. Crowley came in to close the game out in the 7th inning. Crowley ended a potential threat with a pickoff of a Beverly runner at 1st base.
With the victory the Giants advance to the semi-final round on Saturday against the winner of Beverely/Maynard. The semi final & final rounds will be hosted by Beverely at Cooney field. Time and opponent to be announced friday evening.
Once again the Giants would like to thank their fans for making the road trip to support the team!
