Have mercy: Amesbury dominates Newburyport

(Continued)

“I said when I got to the field that I felt good,” said Schultz, who has been playing varsity since freshman year. “I’ve been feeling very well lately.”

Schell sent a triple out to left in the top of the fourth and scored on a passed ball before Schultz scored on an error. The Amesbury train kept on rolling in top of the fifth as two more runs scored before Tomasz made a spectacular diving catch with the bases loaded. But with a 12 plus-run deficit and five innings in the book, the mercy rule was cited after the Newburyport bats remained silent in the bottom of the fifth, and everyone went home early.

“We did everything right,” Perry said of the second inning. “We got hits, and they made a couple of errors, and it’s just one of those things that happens. The last time we played them, a week ago, it was 4-1, and we were hanging on by a thread. You just never know.”

“Newburyport is a great team and it is always great playing them,” said Schultz. “The rivalry is still fresh, it doesn’t matter. Credit to our pitcher, Carolina Merrill. She’s doing a great job this year.”
