West Warwick comes from behind in bottom of the seventh for 2-1 win over Coventry!
Down 1-0 in the bottom of the seventh inning, West Warwick came from behind for a 2-1 win over Coventry.
Alex Pedus drew a walk to lead the inning off, stole second base and scored on Colby Knott’s rbi double to right-center field. Nick Pedus followed with a sacrifice bunt, moving Knott to third base.
Two pitches later on an attempted suicide squeeze by Will Cornicelli, a curve ball ricocheted off the ground and the catcher as Knott raced home with the winning run.
Mason Provoyeur, who singled and doubled in the contest, picked up the victory with three strikeouts and three innings of no-hit relief.
Both starters were efficient for the Pawtuxet Valley rivals. For the Black and Orange, Alex Pedus struck out six and allowed just one run on three hits. Coventry’s Anthony Braddock, who struck out four batters and did not allow a free pass, allowed no run on five scattered hits.
Coventry’s lone run came in the top of the fifth inning when Ryan Fogel doubled, stole second and scored on Tyler Reall’s suicide squeeze.
