Post 59 Wins 5th Straight in 12-1 Victory

Milford Legion returned to action on Tuesday night to face off against North County. Post 59 kept their winning streak alive by once again lighting up the scoreboard winning the game 12-1.

Joe Sanchioni started the bottom of the 1st with a base hit and later came into score on a Tyler Monahan RBI single. The Blue and Gold took a 1-0 lead into the 2nd inning.

The Milford bats came alive in the bottom of the 2nd inning when the team put up six runs. Leading the way was Aidan Wilde who roped a double that scored two runs, giving Post 59 a commanding 7-0 lead entering the 3rd.

A pair of RBI base hits by Sanchioni and Shawn Rebello in the bottom of the 3rd sparked a four run inning for the team, extending the lead to 11-1.

The teams scoring output was completed in the 4th inning with an Aidan Wilde sacrifice fly that gave Milford an 11 run lead heading into the top of the 5th.

The starting pitcher for Milford was left hander Alex Gonfrade. The Mount Saint Charles student athlete was very effective in his first Legion start of the season keeping hitters off balance with a number of off speed pitches notably a rarely seen knuckleball. Gonfrade pitched 5 fantastic innings striking out four North County hitters.

"He was awesome. He was all around the plate and mixed his pitches well. That is what you need to be effective." Coach Steve DiVitto commented regarding Gonfrade's performance after the game.


Key to the game

Milford's bats were on fire once again on Tuesday evening with yet another 10 run mercy rule finish. With this win it extends the teams consecutive mercy rule victories to four in a row. The team displayed great approaches at the plate being selective, working counts and capitalizing with runners in scoring position.

Post 59 takes on Shrewsbury on Wednesday evening which will serve as on one of the teams toughest tests up to this point.

Coach DiVitto believes that the team needs "to be consistent every day we come to the field and need to have the same mindset whether the game is at home or on the road."

Milford hopes to keep the momentum going and pick up their sixth win of the season on Wednesday night.
