By NICK STOICO Monitor staff Tuesday, April 24, 2018 Print Gilford sophomore Cody Boucher hustled in right field and made a diving catch in the bottom of the third inning of Tuesday’s game against Somersworth.The play prevented what would have been Somersworth’s first and only hit of the afternoon as Gilford’s Adrian Siravo dealt his second no-hitter of the spring and the Eagles topped the ’Toppers, 6-0, in Somersworth.“Adrian was really good again,” Gilford coach Eric Duquette said. “I think he was a little amped up in the beginning. He walked two guys, but then he beared down and struck out the next two.”Siravo, Gilford’s precocious sophomore and hard-throwing righty, is 3-0 as a starter including two no-hitters. His first came in the Eagles’ 11-0 season-opening win over Winnisquam.Siravo led the Eagles (4-0) to victory with 11 strikeouts, elevating his season total to 33.Somersworth (3-2) brought its best to the … [Read more...] about High schools: Siravo tosses 2nd no-hitter to lead Gilford baseball over Somersworth
An oblique injury has slowed Buddy Reed’s roll. California League pitchers were not.The Padres’ dynamic outfield prospect was out of the lineup two days in a row heading into the weekend after tweaking his oblique during a swing on Wednesday. Before that, he was riding a seven-game hitting streak in which he’d amassed a .613/.625/.1.065 batting line, three homers, 11 RBIs and three steals at high Single-A Lake Elsinore.He collected two homers and four doubles over the last two games alone, including an inside-the-park home run in which he slowed as he rounded third (to avoid the runner ahead of him), ran through a stop sign and scored without sliding.The blazing trip around the bases wasn’t all that surprising for Reed, a 2016 second-rounder drafted for a raw five-tool skillset that’s a bit late developing due to a late start in baseball.The hits that piled up this week may be more than a hot week.A .234 hitter in Fort Wayne last year, the switch-hitting … [Read more...] about Is Buddy Reed turning corner in Padres system?
To give you an idea of the magnitude of what Didi Gregorius accomplished during Monday’s Bronx opener on a frosty evening better suited for penguins than shortstops, consider his supporting cast in the Yankees’ 11-4 rout of the Rays. Aaron Judge, the all-everything No. 99 himself, was the stage manager nudging Gregorius from the dugout for not one, but two curtain calls after he drilled a pair of three-run homers through a bone-chilling rain that soaked the Stadium. As for Giancarlo Stanton, the Yankees’ supposed king-maker of winter trades, he was immensely grateful that Gregorius gave the fans plenty to cheer about. If not for the crowd frequently chanting, “Di-Di! Di-Di!” who knows how much louder and longer the booing would have been for his cringe-worthy five-strikeout day? “It was fun to watch, man,” Stanton said. “He picked me up, too. That’s what a cleanup hitter does — you clean up the garbage in front of you.” … [Read more...] about All-powerful Didi Gregorius cleans up in Yankees’ home opener
