NEW BRITAIN, Conn. â€“ The creed that Daniel Bard swears by nowadays is simple enough.
Jams on the mound are going to arise â€“ but how he reacts and responds to those situations is what matters most. Even the most successful professional pitcher can never be flawless, and therefore he must have an unflappable disposition when confronted with an inevitable first-and-second, no-out jam.
CUMBERLAND - It was perfectly understandable why Cumberland High skipper Paul Murphy seemed so dejected on Friday afternoon.
His ace, senior southpaw Dylan Boisclair, pitched respectably, but didnâ€™t have the usual mustard on his fastball or relish on the curve. The infield made some plays, but also erred once, and the Clippers as a whole allowed Hendricken to run the bases with impunity.
All of that resulted in the Hawks remaining unbeaten with a 6-1 thumping of the Clippers at Tucker Field, in Division I-North play.
