Beverly - 9, Hamilton - 3

The Beverly Giants (14-6) used a 7 run fifth inning to beat the Hamilton Generals (8-8-1) 9 to 3 Sunday. Paul Drinkwater's grand slam was the big blow of the inning for the Giants. Drinkwater finished 2 for 3 with a HR, 4RBI, and 2R on the day. Also contributing offensively for the Giants were John Boyle (2 for 2, RBI) and Jeff Barricelli (1 for 2, 3RBI). Josh Levesque started on the mound and allowed only 1 unearned run over 4 innings. Steve Palladino earned the win allowing 2 runs in 3 innings of relief.

The Generals were led by Avon Stewart (3 for 4, 2RBI) and Jim Maloney (1 for 3, 2B, 2R). Matt Greeke was charged with the loss.

The two teams meet up again in Hamilton Tuesday night.
