It was another rainy day in Shrewbury -Seattle but due to the amazing prep work by the majors and prep Sunday crew the fields held up for some Sunday Funday Baseball. The Red Sox would get their first home game (not rained out) against the visiting  Angels. The Angels had Thomas Dowling on the mound against one of the Sox Ace’s Ian Taylor. 

Ian continued his dominant start to the spring bringing the heat. A hit by Tyler Boehnke and a walk to Boden Kuhnel got a rally started. A nice single by Spencer Loughlin would drive in Tyler for the first run. Ian would spread out 3 k’s between this and stop the rally.

In the bottom of the first the Sox bats stayed hot. Hits by Max Caputo and Jack Wharton would be followed by an Ian Taylor double to drive them in and an Andrew Blanchette single to drive in Ian. 

End of 1st inn Sox 3-1 

In the top of the 2nd Ian kept bringing it striking out 3 more. Not to be out done Tom followed suit striking out 3 batters of his own. 

End of 2nd inn Sox 3-1 

Max Caputo took to the mound for his first action of the prep season and he wasted no time with it striking out the side in order. Andrew Strum would get his turn in the bottom of the 3rd and follow with three k’s of his own. 

End of 3rd inn Sox 3-1 

In the top of the 4th the Loughlin bros (Spencer and Mason) would get to Max for two singles but Max kept his composure and got 3 more k’s to stop a potential Angels rally. 

In the bottom of the fourth the top of the Sox order got to work again. A walk to George Kosheff was followed by singles from Jack, Ian, Krew Duprey and Andrew that plated 3 more runs. 

End of 4th inn Sox 6-1 

In the top of the 5th the other Sox ace Jack Wharton would make his spring debut. The Angels were not going out without a fight.  A walk to Ayden Belanger was followed by a scorching triple to right by Thomas Dowling. Tyler followed with a walk and then 2 singles by Boden and Spencer’s third hit of the day would plate 3. Jack settled and ended the rally with 2k’s 

The Sox would attempt a rally of their own by loading the bases in the bottom half of the 5th. Jack hit a solid liner to 3rd base and Mason Loughlin made the defensive play of the game making the catch to save a bases clearing hit and ending the inn! 

End of 5th inn Sox 6-4 

In the top of the 6th the Angels weren’t going down easy. Two walks and a HBP would load up the bases and have everyone in the stands on their feet. Jack once again settled in for two huge k’s to end the game! 

Final Score Sox win 6-4
