Bobby Losanno’s grand slam in the bottom of the fourth inning led the way when the Melrose Americans held off the Lexington Blue Box 5-3 in a game played at Wakefield’s Walsh Field on Sunday afternoon. Greg Johnson (1-0) got the win. Cory Bright had a double, single, and drove in the fifth Melrose run. Josue Feliciano had had three hits, including a double, and knocked in a couple of runs for Lexington.
Both of Sunday’s later games (Middlesex at Reading & Malden at Andre) were postponed due to rain.
Monday’s Alibrandis-Lexington game at Lexington High has already been postponed as the heavy rain and wet fields continue to devastate the ICL schedule.
