On Friday, May 19th, Westford Academy Baseball won in a compelling game against the Cambridge R&L Falcons.

The game started with the Cambridge R&L Falcons at bat. The first batter hit the ball but an attempted steal was picked off by a WA catcher. By the bottom of the first inning the score stayed 0-0. WA held a quick huddle before coming to home base with excited shouts of “Go 1!” supporting the first player at bat in the 1st inning, Andy Cathcart. Cathcart was then ground-balled by a shortstop, and thrown out of the game.

After Cathcart, Zak Murray came up to bat and hit a ground rule double, resulting in encouraging shouts from Coach Michael Parent. Murray made it all the way to third base, resulting in no runs by WA.

In top of the second inning, Cambridge struck out twice and grounded out. When WA came to the plate, they had multiple great hits but the ball made it to the first baseman before the team could get there on every play, striking WA out.

The 3rd inning came around, and Cambridge was ready to make some runs, but all three players struck out. In the bottom of the third inning, the Ghosts managed to score a run. With another hit from a Ghost, the other two players on base made it to home and changed their score from 0-0 to 3-0. Cheers from the crowd erupted.

The fourth inning started with high hopes from Cambridge fans to score a run. #27 made it all the way to third base, after a teammate struck out. However, they didn’t score any runs. When WA came to plate, no score was added to the board, all three players struck out.

The 5th inning came around, and Cambridge’s #27 made it all the way to home base. This made he score 3-1. The bottom of the 5th inning started with a new pitch, #33. Cathcart made it all the way to third base, but Cambridge stranded the players at the bases with a fly ball by #13.

WA struck out 2 players in the top of the 6th inning. A promising hit brought #8 to 1st base. #14 hits and #8 got all the way to third. Unfortunately for Cambridge, a ground-ball was caught by a shortstop thrown to 1st base for the out.

In the bottom of the 6th, WA put #20 to start. He hit a bunt and was safe at 1st base. A teammate hit, and both he and #20 got the 2nd and 3rd bases, and a threat to the score was made. WA hit a run and all 3 players made it around the diamond. The crowd went wild after the score changed to 6-1.

The last inning began with hard rock music to pump up the players. No score was made by Cambridge in the top and no score in the bottom.

With this win, Coach Parent will lead his team to the MIAA tournament. The Falcons will also go on into the tournament.
