Ipswich over Rockport: 7-2

Ipswich concluded the first season sweep of Rockport in over 20 years last night in Ipswich.  It was a close game until the bottom of the 5th inning when the Chiefs broke it open with 6 runs to take a 7-1 lead.  The inning was capped off by a two run triple by Matt Small that was the longest hit ball at Bialek Park this year.  Ipswich starter Greg Doucette pitched a great game allowing 1 earned run over 6 innings while Chris Lane finished things off with a scoreless seventh.  The Chiefs return to action at the end of the week starting a home and home series with Beverly on Friday in Ipswich and Sunday in Beverly.
