Today’s games are listed below.

Baseball
Division 1

#9 Bridgewater-Raynham, 1 @ #1 Franklin, 2 – FinalAlfred Mucciarone was terrific in a complete game effort and the Panthers provided him enough offense to avenge a loss to B-R from earlier in the season with a 2-1 verdict, earning a spot in the Division 1 Final 4. Mucciarone fanned 11 batters while allowing one run on just four hits and two walks to get the win on the mound. Franklin broke the stalemate with the first run of the game in the third inning when junior Henry Digiorgio had a two-out single to bring home classmate Rex Cinelli, who had a leadoff single to start the frame. The Panthers pushed across the winning run two innings later in the bottom of the fifth when Jase Lyons (fielder’s choice) came home after Digiorgio put it in play and reached on an infield error. Mucciarone retired the side in order in the top of the seventh, including a pair of strikeouts. #1 Franklin will play the winner of #4 Central Catholic and #21 Methuen in a Division 1 state semifinal game on a date and time to be announced.

#7 BC High, 2 @ #2 Taunton, 3 – FinalTaunton erased an early two-run deficit, scoring three unanswered including the go-ahead run in the fourth inning to secure a spot in the state semifinals with a win over visiting BC High. The Eagles scored once in the first and again in the top of the third to stake a 2-0 lead but it didn’t last long as Taunton plated a pair in the bottom of the third to tie the game. Shawn Cali (walk), Andrew Cali (single), and Braden Sullivan (single) all reached to load the bases for Taunton, and junior Brayden Cali put the ball in play and reached on an error that allowed two runs to come home to tie the game. An inning later, AJ Lewis led off with a triple and came home to score on a sac fly from Shawn Cali to put the Tigers ahead. Sophomore Johnny Escobalez earned the win, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits, two walks, and struck out five in five innings of work. Brady Morin tossed a scoreless inning in relief and Ryan MacDougall earned the save, working around a two-out walk and a hit by pitch to get the final out. #2 Taunton will play the winner of #3 Westford Academy and #6 St. John’s Shrewsbury in a Division 1 state semifinal game on a date and time to be announced.

Sencaj sent a 2-0 pitch over the head of the center fielder to score the winning — and only — run of the game to book a spot in the Division 2 state semifinal.

The Tigers went down in order in the first two innings but a leadoff home run from senior Mia Fernandes in the bottom of the third inning ignited an offensive onslaught the rest of the way. Taunton pushed five runs across in the inning and then four more in the bottom of the fifth on a grand slam from sophomore Brooke Aldrich, scoring Ava Venturelli, Kaysie DeMoura, and Hayley Krockta, who all walked to load the bases. Eighth grader Bella Bourque smashed a two-run homer in the sixth and DeMoura had an RBI single in the inning to cap the scoring.
