“That was probably the biggest swing of the year,” Southall said of Creamer’s slam. “We were down 2-1 at the time. Brett was on the mound, and he was struggling a little bit. But he kept us in the game. Then Creamer put us up 5-2 with one swing, and we kind of took off from there and it turned into an eight-run inning. And that kind of propelled us down the stretch.”
Post 150 would end up winning that contest 10-5 and prevailed 9-8 in a knock-down-drag-’em-out against the Lynn 6 at Eiras Park last night behind the debut of Georgetown’s Pat Slack, who was tagged for five runs through five innings. Connor MacRae would be tagged for two runs in two innings, but Brett Fontaine recorded the save with two out and two men on as the parking lot lights came on, and the rain began coming down once again.
“Nothing’s easy,” Southall said after last night’s game, which was a make-up from a Thursday-night rain out. “But it was a good win. (Lynn) is a good team. They showed up and were ready to play. It was nice to get it in and play. We’ve got either first or second place with this. We’re going to find out in a little bit. But we are looking forward to Sunday.”
“It’s been a great season,” continued Southall, whose Nor’Easters also clinched home field advantage for the first game of the playoffs on Sunday. “We’re looking forward to putting some icing on the cake, so to speak. It’s all gravy from here.”
