THE SAUGUS ADVOCATE – Friday, June 28, 2019 Page 15 Tringale works two innings in Eastern all-star clash By Greg Phipps S porting a 7-2 record and amassing over 100 strikeouts both as a starter and reliever this season, Saugus High School senior right-hander Todd Tringale had an opportunity last Wednesday, June 19, to test his skills against some of the best players from Eastern Massachusetts. The Saugus ace ended up with a strong showing for the North All-Stars at historic Fraser Field in Lynn. He hurled two innings and allowed one unearned run on three hits in an eventual 6-3 victory for the South squad in the 42nd annual Eastern Massachusetts Senior All-Star game. Tringale faced a 4-0 deficit when he took the mound in the top of the third inning in relief of the North starter. He gave up one hit but got through his first frame unscathed. The South Stars reached him for a run in the fourth when two hits, including a double, and an error in the outfield led to the South’s fifth tally. The North would rally to make it interesting with a run in the sixth and two more in the bottom of the ninth inning to account for the final score. Saugus head coach Joe Luis assisted Austin Prep coach Steve Busby in leading this year’s North squad. “After having a nice season like we had, it was great to be able to come and watch top talent in the area play,” Luis told the press after the contest. “The fielding was phenomenal, the pitching was excellent, the bats were swinging. I can take a little bit of what I saw [in the game] into next season. Seeing [the all-star players’] work ethic ... That’s what makes these kids so good. It’s the extra stuff.” St. John’s Prep catcher Alex Lane finished with two RBI and received the North team’s offensive player for the game award. Austin Prep’s Cam Seguin was the North’s pitcher of the game. Luis said it was a treat to see Good Credit or Bad Credit 153 Ferry St., Everett 617-294-4064 Tringale, who helped lead his 2019 Saugus team to a 15-7 overall finish that included a first-round playoff win, compete against the top players in the area. “It was special watching Todd pitch. He’s a special kid,” Luis observed. “He played a huge role in our success this year.” Tringale, who will attend UMass Amherst next year, held a 4-2 lead over Bishop Fenwick (BF), the eventual Div. 3 North champion, in this year’s quarterfinal round before seeing it dissipate when BF scored three times with two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning to pull off a dramatic comeback victory.
