LINCOLN â€“ Just ask anyone associated with the Lincoln High program and they will universally declare the following: Joe Yankee is the quintessential X-factor.
On a team loaded with players ranging from good to very good, Yankee might just be the one Lion whose impact cannot be understated. The junior continued to strengthen said argument Sunday afternoon against a strong Moses Brown offense, striking out seven Quakers in the Lionsâ€™ 14-4 mercy-rule thrashing at Chet Nichols Field.
WOONSOCKET â€“ Mount St. Charles will now sit back and see if a 7-11 record will be good enough to gain admittance to the 16-team Division I tournament. The Mounties stated their case one final time Sunday with a 2-1 win against Cumberland High. Garrett Hayward was the difference maker, blasting an inside-the-park two-run home run in the last of the sixth inning off of Cumberland ace Justin Patrick.
