Triton coach Ryan McCarthy said he was happy with Desrocher’s performance, but that he wants to see a better all-around effort from the rest of his team.
“Right now we’re not playing complete games,” McCarthy said. “I have no complaints on how our pitchers are performing, but if we’re hitting, we’re not fielding, and if we’re fielding, we’re not hitting.”
Triton will now have a week off to get itself back in gear before facing Amesbury on Saturday, and McCarthy said his plan is to go back to basics, practice hard and hopefully turn things around for the second half of the season.
Georgetown 6, Newburyport 5
Georgetown had a tough week last week, dropping back-to-back one-run games to Hamilton-Wenham and North Reading, two of the best teams in the Cape Ann League. Despite the hard losses, the Royals were able to regroup and beat Newburyport on the road 6-5 on Friday afternoon.
The game was originally scheduled for Saturday, but was moved to Friday afternoon in order to beat the oncoming rain. With the loss, Newburyport now finds itself at 3-5 on the season and in last place in the CAL Kinney Division.
Saugus 8, Amesbury 7
Amesbury dropped its fifth game in a row on Friday morning, losing to Saugus 8-7 in a close home matchup. With the loss, Amesbury now stands at 3-6 and falls behind Georgetown in the CAL Baker Division standings.
