As of early this week, the 9-1 Rockies were two games ahead of the East Boston Knights for fi rst place in the Carl Yastrzemski Division. The league, which is made up of two fi ve-team divisions (the Ted Williams Division is the other one), has seen its share of rainouts so far this season. Three of Revere’s last three scheduled games leading into the fi rst half of this week had been postponed. The one that was played ended in a 6-3 victory over the Savin Hill Dodgers last Saturday at Revere High School. The Rockies jumped ahead 6-1 after four frames and held on from there, scoring twice in the fi rst inning, once in the third and three more times in the fourth. Revere fi nished with just six hits, but Bobby Foote’s three-run homer in the fourth was the key blast that turned out to bring home the winning runs. Bobby Polanco also smacked two hits and drove in the other three runs for the Rockies. Kevin Sinatra added a double while Tony Iafolla and Zach Aresty both singled. Starting pitcher Alex Wong hurled fi ve innings for the win, allowing two runs on four hits with fi ve strikeouts. Wong improved to 3-0 on the season with a 1.40 ERA. Gehrig Schilling worked the fi nal two frames and gave up one run. Through their fi rst 10 games, the Rockies have outscored the opposition by a combined 67-28 margin and were hitting .292 as a team with 59 RBI. Ryan Petrone was batting .536 with 15 hits and 17 runs scored while Polanco (.355 AVG) was leading the team with 14 RBI. Foote had 11 RBI and Iafolla was hitting .417. In the pitching category, Chris Sandini (3-0) has been amazing, not having given up an earned run in his three starts. He had allowed just five hits in over 17 innings pitched with 22 Ks. Likewise, Joe Shepard, also 3-0, was nearly as eff ective with an ERA of 1.00. Revere sported a staggering team ERA of 1.62. The team’s lone defeat came against the AI Thomas Athletics, 6-2, back on June 10. The A’s swatted Rockies’ pitching for 12 hits and four early runs to come out on top. Revere managed seven hits. Jacob Byrne had two of them, including a double, and Petrone had two hits. Iafolla and Chanel Eyebar drove in the runs. NOW BOOKING NEW CUSTOMERS! DON’T WAIT!
