Lincoln Little League improves to 2-0 in New England regionals

August 4, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. — Thankfully for Lincoln Little League, Brandon Lee is just one player.

The No. 3 hitter in Newton South East’s lineup certainly did some damage Sunday, slugging two home runs with four RBI and two runs scored. Collectively, Lincoln was able to overcome the Herculean effort and knock off the Massachusetts representative. 14-8, in the second game round-robin play of the Little League New England Regional Tournament.

Both squads ended up spraying the ball all over Leon J. Breen Field, tallying 22 runs and 25 hits, including 10 extra base hits.

The Jake Peavy acquisition was not the only smoke signal sent out by the Red Sox at the July 31 non-waiver trading deadline. Last Wednesday’s 4 p.m Eastern Time deadline did not feature the acquisition of a warm body for the sole purpose of augmenting the bullpen core that manager John Farrell presently has at his disposal.
