Walsh Relief Gets Chiefs Win, Annino Pitches Blue Sox to Victory

Evan Walsh (1-1) threw five innings of one-hit relief, striking out seven and retiring the last 13 in a row, to enable the Andre Chiefs to come from behind and beat the Watertown Reds 6-2 at Maplewood. Leivi Ventura had two RBI’s and Nate Witkowski had three hits, including a double, for the Chiefs. Dan Chassion had a RBI double for the Reds. Nate Beck (0-2) took the loss.

In Lexington, Tony Annino spun five innings of two-hit ball, striking out ten, to lead the Blue Sox to a 4-1 win over the Somerville Royals. Julian Alvarez led the Lexington offense with three hits and a couple of RBI’s. Jake Cintolo doubled home Nick Valdario with the Royals only run in the top of the sixth.

The Wakefield Merchants-Melrose Americans game that was scheduled for Morelli Field was postponed due to wet grounds.
