NORTH PROVIDENCE â At such an early hour, it seemed like many of the players were sleepwalking during Saturday morningâs game between Upper Deck Post 86/14 and the North Providence Post 29 Senators at North Providence High.
Between Post 86/14 and the Post 29 Senators, the two teams combined for 11 walks and four errors in the field. However, despite the sloppy play, one team came away the winner, and it was the Senators who cruised to their second consecutive victory over Post 86/14 in convincing fashion, 7-2.
