Near perfect week for Pinkerton baseball

RYAN HUTTON/ Staff photoPinkerton's Richard Marique is having a huge year at the plate.

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.

TUESDAY

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. 

WEDNESDAY

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.

THURSDAY

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.

FRIDAY

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.

SATURDAY

The Astros couldn’t pull off the perfect week, however, falling to Bedford on Saturday 4-3.
