Milford Wins Fourth Consecutive In 10-0 Blowout

The explosive bats of Post 59 were on display once again on Monday night, June 19th as Milford defeated Cherry Valley 10-0.

Even with the threat of storms that could eventually shorten the game in mind, Milford kept to their normal game plan, working extended at bats and collecting numerous timely hits.

"There are things you can control and things you can't, and the weather is not one of them. The guys did a great job of keeping their minds ready to play tonight," Coach Steve DiVitto added regarding his teams approach to the game.

Post 59 struck for seven runs in the bottom of the third inning. Tyler Almeida's first hit in a Milford uniform was a crucial three run bases clearing double into the right center gap.

The power surge continued for the Blue and Gold as Aidan Wilde roped a two run triple. Wilde later came into score on a Tyler Monahan base hit extending the Milford lead to 10-0.

The game ended in yet another ten run mercy rule finish which has seemed to be a normal occurrence for this Milford ball club. With the exception of the opening day loss of the season to Leominster, Post 59's bats have exploded for 37 runs throughout their three game streak of 10 runs or more.

Coach DiVitto stressed that "The big thing is to continue to work on our swings at BP every day and learn from mistakes we may have made in previous games." Milford has been nearly flawless at the plate but DiVitto believes there is always room to improve.

Key to the game

Along with the scorching hot Milford bats, the pitching staff has been just as solid. Monday marked the season debut for Left hander Jonathan Rice who was returning to the mound for the first time following Tommy John surgery. Rice looked impressive showcasing a hard fastball and good off-speed pitches. On a pitch limit, Rice gave up only two hits and no runs in his four innings of work. Jack Tempesta finished the game for Post 59 in the fifth with a scoreless inning of relief. The mix of Kyle Nocera, Alex Macek, Michael Farrell and Rice have the potential to help Milford make a deep postseason run.

Milford returns to the diamond tomorrow night at Fino Field at 7 pm against North County.
