Topsfield 2 - Beverly 13

The Beverly Giants started out the season with a 13 to 2 win over the Topsfield Tories. Beverly used 5 pitchers allowing only 1 hit, but issuing 8 walks and allowing 3 runners to reach via error in an ugly opening game. Luke Deschamps earned the win with two scoreless innings. Bob Anderson finished the game with two shutout innings.

Beverly's offense rapped out 11 hits on the night. Mike Freni was 2 for 3 with a triple and 2RBI. Nick Adams added two doubles and knocked in two. Jeff Gianinno homered and walked twice in his ITL debut.

The Giants (1-0) take on the Hamilton Generals (0-1) Wednesday night at Cooney Field in Beverly. The Tories (0-1) travel to Rowley (0-0) on Wednesday.
