East Providence loses to Bristol/Warren on Wednesday:
The combined East Providence/Riverside major division all-stars lost out to Bristol/Warren Wednesday night in Bristol, 5-3. The second loss for the team eliminates them from the tournament. The game started on a promising note when EP centerfielder Chris Charbonneau slammed a three-run homerun to deep center field in the first inning. The dinger brought home Alex Enright and JJ Renaud who were on base. Unfortunately, that would be all the scoring East Providence could manage against Bristol/Warren pitching. Ep came close in the fourth inning when a Renaud bid for a homerun hit the outfield fence for a double, but a rally wasn’t in the cards.
Bristol/Warren chipped away with a run in their first inning on a leadoff single by Dewolf followed by a Towers double. The game would remain 3-1 until the fifth inning when Bristol/Warren broke the game open when they led off the frame with a line-hugging double to right field followed by a two-run homerun to tie the game at 3. Tristan Lawton made one of his several great fielding plays when he threw out a runner at first. However, another Bristol/Warren hit scored their 4th run of the game making the score 5-3.
East Providence continued to play good defense as catcher JJ Renaud pounced on a squib hit and fired to first baseman Wyatt Andrews who stretched and scooped the throw for an out. Lawton led off the top of the fourth with a base hit and with two outs, Jose Figueroa singled and Alex Enright walked. However, EP left the bases loaded without scoring and they were shut down in order, innings five and six. “It was a good tournament run,” said coaches after the game. “The team played well on defense tonight but fell just short with the bats. They gave it their all.”
