WILMINGTON, MA — Below are a couple of recent Wilmington Little League game summaries:AAA: Astros vs. Pirates on Wednesday, April 23, 2019 at Boutwell FieldThe Astros started the year off on the right foot, getting contributions from every single player! John Roofe and Tony Cummings were outstanding on the mound starting off the game, each striking out four in two innings. Cael Considine and Joe Fennelly were just as strong, striking out three in each of their innings. Considine was on base three times, scoring two runs. Roofe, Fennelly, and Andrew Santo scored as well. The team was busy on the basepaths all game as Roofe (2), Santo, Cummings, and Kevin Pruslin all had hits. Connor Jaimeson, Kyle Price and Owen Wills also found ways to get on base. Patrick Moriarty, Fennelly, and Dylan Costantiello did a great job catching two innings each. The Astros strong fielding was critical in limiting the Pirates’ offense as Jake Gryglik and Aidan Raposa were two of many players who made plays or were well-positioned to limit the Pirates from taking extra bases. It was a very encouraging start to the season for the team! The Pirates put forth a strong effort in their first game despite the loss. Their pitching performances, which were comprised of Spencer Walker, Aiden Harris, and Jackson Cipolle, were stellar. In addition, the team’s defensive play, spearheaded by the two catchers, Max Glazer and Max Snapausky, was great. The key offensive play was when Spencer Walker broke up the shutout in the 5th inning by singling home Adam Ientile. The coaches were very proud of each and every one of the boy’s efforts and look forward to coaching them this season.AAA: Astros vs. Giants on Saturday, April 27, 2019 at Boutwell FieldThe Giants came to play on an unseasonably cold Saturday night. Gavin Burke set the tone with some great starting pitching. They held off an early scoring threat with a nice defensive play at third by Colin Dwyer. The solid defense continued with plays by Luke Hurley and Brendan Cohen. Charlie Chioccariello had a stellar day behind the plate working with Damian DiCenso who was bringing the heat on the mound. On the base paths, Pierce Silveria and Caden Merritt were showcasing their speed scoring runs for the Giants. The Astros were able to stay warm enough to accomplish quite a bit themselves. Jake Gryglik and Patrick Moriarty pitched two solid, resilient innings each. They combined to strike out five and make four plays at the mound, really helping their own causes. Moriarty and Andrew Santo each caught two great innings. Joe Fennelly lead the offense with a single, double, and stolen base.
