Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 5, 2023 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE ROUNDUP: Malden’s McMahon dominates with 13 Ks in baseball shutout win, 5-0, over Everett Revere still unbeaten atop GBL Boys Volleyball standings; Malden also perfect (5-0); Tornado boys and girls tennis teams lead GBL race By Jason Mazzilli M alden High senior righthander Brandon McMahon has drawn many accolades in his high school career. He has twice been a league All-Star and also twice recognized as a Mass. Baseball Coaches Association State All-Star. With all that and a pile of outstanding performances under his belt, still, Wednesday was some of his best work. For sure. The lanky veteran was dominating and at the same time economical in a complete-game, 5-0 victory over visiting Everett at Pine Banks Park in Malden on Wednesday. In these days of mandated pitch count rules, McMahon hurled a bona fi de gem, going the distance for a complete-game shutout, featuring 13 strikeouts and 4 scattered hits. The most impressive statistic might have been the actual pitch count itself, as McMahon went the whole way on just 87 pitches. Malden could have scored more runs early, stranding 10 baserunners on the day, but was able to scratch across the necessary scores due to the hitting and baserunning eff orts of sophomores Aidan Brett and Bo Stead (RBI double) and juniors Jake Simpson, Ryan Coggswell and Ezechiel Noelsaint – all three of them co-captains along with McMahon. Freshman Billy Gavin also scored a run for Malden. “I felt really good all day and I knew I had to go the whole game today. I know a lot of players on the other team [Everett], and that was a big motivator for me today,” McMahon said afterward.
