Triton bounces back, beats Port 4-1

(Continued)

“Overall, we’re getting better,” L’Italien said. “We played three good teams and we’re looking forward to getting better.”

Amesbury 7, Rockport 0

The Indians improved to 2-1 on the season thanks to a shutdown performance by sophomore pitcher Chris Cioffi. Cioffi went the whole seven innings for Amesbury, allowing just four hits and one walk while striking out five batters.

The Indians also got strong offensive days at the plate from junior Spencer Fournier, who had a two-run double, freshman Jared Dupre, who had a two-run single, and also from Mac Short and Zack Fitzgerald, who each had RBI singles during the course of the game.

Amesbury coach Gene Burnham also made a point to highlight the defensive efforts of shortstop Ben Cullen, right fielder Nick Hawrylciw, first baseman Pat Scanlon and left fielder Brad Kelleher. The Indians previously lost their opener 5-4 to Lynnfield in nine innings, and then beat Manchester Essex 3-0 on Friday.

Amesbury will be back in action tomorrow when the Indians take on Georgetown at home.
