Result from Monday night in Topsfield

Hamilton - 9, Beverly - 7

The Hamilton Generals held on to beat the Beverly Giants 9 to 7 Tuesday night at Patton Park.  This was not the cleanest played game of the season as the teams combined for 14 walks, 6 wild pitches, and 5 errors.  But, Hamilton held together a little bit better than Beverly to emerge as the winners.

The Giants jumped out to an early 2 to 1 lead highlighted by a Josh Levesque RBI ground rule double.  But, in the bottom of the third inning the Generals took the lead for good on an Avon Stewart two run single.  They increased the lead in the fourth on Larry Sagesse and Joe Desjardins RBI singles.  In the bottom of the fifth the Generals jumped out to a big lead plating 4 more runs to take a 9 to 2 lead.  The first two runs scored on singles by Neil Simmons and Chris Huggett.  The last two runs scored on an error.

The score remained 9 to 2 until the top of the seventh inning when Hamilton starter, Jack Clay appeared to tire.  The Giants cut the lead to 9 to 4 with two out and the bases loaded.  That's when Hamilton went to Luke Painchaud for the save.  Beverly managed a walk and a two run double by Dan Cashman that moved the tying run to second base with two out.  However, Painchaud bore down and got the final batter to pop out.

Jack Clay earned the win allowing 7 runs (6 earned) in 6 2/3 innings while striking out 6.  Luke Painchaud got the save.  Andy Brown (3IP, 5R, 3ER) took the loss.  Hamilton's Huggett and Saggesse had two hits each.
