It was a hot day at the farm this past weekend. The temperature was well into the 90’s and the bats of the Newburyport Clamdiggers and Portsmouth Rockinghams were on fire as well. A big thank you to our fans for sticking it out for two well played games, and a big thank you to Ipswich Ale for keeping everyone hydrated!
Game 1 – Newburyport 14, Portsmouth 8
Although Portsmouth hit multiple homeruns in a late inning rally, Newburyport was able to weather the storm with unbelievable defense led by Julie “Hustle” Hynes. She made an acrobatic diving catch in center field on a ball that bounced 20 feet in front of her and appeared uncatchable.
Game 2 – Newburyport 21, Portsmouth 10
Mikey “Ace” Kent was the star on offense and on the mound. He hit a grandslam into the cornfield in right while keeping Porstmouth’s homerun ball at bay. John “Specs” Curley starred on defense throwing out a runner at 2nd on an attempted steal and making numerous foul tip catches.
Unfortunately we have to cancel the scheduled games between the Newburyport Clamdiggers and Lynn Live Oaks scheduled for Saturday July 13th, but the games Sunday July 14th are still on so join us at 12pm at Spencer Peirce Little Farm in Newbury and see the Lowell Nine take on the Rockinghams of Portsmouth
