TOWNIES DROP PLAYOFF TILT

The Charlestown Babe Ruth team saw their season come to a halt Monday, after dropping an elimination playoff game to Arlington by a score of 8-4. Give credit to the Arlington pitcher who tossed a complete game with an astonishing 20 strikeouts. That does not mean, however, that the Townie offense was completely stymied as they belted out 8 hits and notched 5 walks. Leading the way offensively were Noel Gallagher (2 hits, stolen base), Jack Adduci (triple, walk, run, stolen base, RBI), Oscar Jahn (hit, run), Angel Buret (hit, walk, RBI), Miguel Buret (hit, 2 walks), Colin Delvalle (hit, walk, run) and Ray Luis (double, run). On the mound, relievers Adduci, Jahn and Gallagher were outstanding in combining for 7 innings pitched, 4 earned runs and 6 strikeouts. Defensively, first baseman Jahn made a sensational scoop to complete a double play, center fielder Miguel Buret tallied a nifty rally-killing putout at second base and left fielder Angel Buret tracked down a towering fly ball for a putout. The Townies finished in second place during the regular season (8-2) and have posted a two-year record of 18-10 in the Middlesex Babe Ruth summer league proving that high-quality baseball is being played in Charlestown. The coaching staff would also like to recognize the following players:
