There was no rest for the weary for the Pinkerton baseball team last week, but it really didn’t matter.
The Astros (10-5) played in five games in five days, and nearly pulled off all five wins. Here’s a look back at a tiring, but rewarding, five-day stretch.
The week started with bang, as the Astros knocked off then-one-loss Concord, 7-2.
Jacob McGill had a pair of hits and drove in a pair of runs to help drop the Crimson Tide to 10-2. Jagger Bell also had a pair of hits and an RBI, and Richard Marique continued his torrid season with a 1-for-3 day.
On the mound, Derek Hiscox tossed five innings and allowed only one run to lower his ERA to 1.52 and improve his record to 4-0.
A day after taking down a talented Concord team, Pinkerton became the first team to beat Bishop Guertin this season, earning a 6-1 victory.
The Cardinals (11-1) made it a 3-1 game in the top of sixth, but the Astros pulled away with three runs in the bottom half of the inning to pull away.
Connor Jenkins went 2 for 3, scored once and drove in two runs to pace the offense, while McGill also had a pair of hits and an RBI.
Asa Runge tossed six innings of five-hit ball, allowing one run and striking out nine.
Marique tossed five solid innings and the offense came alive on Thursday in a 10-2 win over Nashua South.
Brady Day (2 for 4, RBI), Kam Levesque (2 for 4, 2 RBIs), Marique (2 for 3, 2 RBIs) and Frank Gulezian (1 for 3, 2 RBIs) led the offense, as the Astros broke away with a five-run second inning.
Mat Albetski had his best stuff going against Nashua North on Friday, not allowing a hit with five strikeouts through the first five innings.
The senior then got the no-hitter after his offense put up 15 runs for him and the game was called due to mercy-rule.
Connor Jenkins went 2 for 2 with four RBIs, and Marique and Gulezian both drove in three runs as well.
It was a 6-0 game after the first inning.
The Astros couldn’t pull off the perfect week, however, falling to Bedford on Saturday 4-3.
