After sweeping a three-game series against Weston last week, and with their emphatic 10-4 victory over Cambridge Rindge and Latin on Friday in the DCL semifinal, Bedford will be hosting Weston on A Field on Monday at 4:00 with the DCL East championship on the line.
The Bucs will face a confident Weston team fresh from road wins at #4 seed Wayland on Friday and #1 seed Boston Latin on Sunday. But the Bucs, winners of 9 of their last 10 games, will be coming in with plenty of confidence as well, and will have home-field advantage. If you don’t have plans yet, don’t make any, and make sure to come down to cheer on the Bucs tomorrow.
Sunday, June 6 ~ Bedford 8, Weston 1
On a sun-splashed Sunday morning in Bedford, Jake Morrison spun a complete game gem for the Bucs, scattering two hits and striking out five while throwing just 82 pitches. At the plate, Bedford was led by James Brosgol, who went 2-4 with two doubles and three RBI, as well as Owen Brazee and Dylan DiGangi, who also chipped in with two hits apiece.
Tuesday, June 8 ~ Bedford 6, Weston 5 (9 innings)
The Bucs played a three-hour, nine-inning affair on Senior Day, with Bedford coming away with a hard-fought 6-5 victory. Four Bedford pitchers took the mound for Bedford, with Dylan DiGangi earning the win while pitching the 8th and 9th innings. Andrew Sullivan’s pinch-hit double in the 7th inning was a crowd-pleaser, and James Brosgol’s 2-4, 3 RBI afternoon included the game-tying single in the 8th inning that plated DiGangi and the walk-off sacrifice fly in the 9th that scored Max Alper.
Wednesday, June 9 ~ Bedford 6, Weston 2
Under the lights at Weston High School, Matty Forman and James Brosgol kept Weston’s bats at day for most of the evening, while Jack Venuti led the Bedford attack at the plate with a triple and a thrilling straight steal of home plate in the 6th inning. Bedford’s small-ball strategy in that inning and timely RBI singles from Max Alper and Jake Morrison broke open a close game and the Bucs went home with the #2 seed in the DCL tournament in hand.
Friday, June 11 ~ Bedford 10, Cambridge Rindge and Latin 4
With all eyes on Cambridge’s Tulane-bound centerfielder Jackson Linn, it was the Bedford offense that put on a show in the DCL semifinal. Jake Morrison and Dylan DiGangi combined to quiet a potent Cambridge offense, with the defense playing a big role in that story. Center fielder Max Alper made eight outs in the field, left fielder Devan Kaushik made a diving catch to save a run in the 5th, and catcher Owen Brazee gunned down Linn stealing second to end a rally in that same inning. At the plate, James Brosgol gave the Bucs a lead that they would not relinquish when he singled home Max Alper and DiGangi in the second, and Morrison also had two hits and two RBI in the winning effort.
