Upton’s Bradford No-Hits Defending Champs

Milford Senior Ruth head coach Jason Barney discovered Upton's Colin Bradford could pitch by seeing a roster from his middle school league. With a shortage of arms, he decided to give Bradford the ball against defending league champion Marlboro and the rising Nipmuc Regional High School freshman rewarded his coach's faith by throwing a no-hitter.
"He caught us by surprise," Barney said. "I told him we were hurting for arms and that he as getting his chance to shine, it just happened to be against the best team in the league."
After winning the title a year ago, Marlboro started season undefeated before running into Milford and Bradford. He kept the opponent off balance all day, striking out two and working around four walks in a 2-0 Micros win. "He just kept throwing the fastball for strikes," Barney said. "He got a lot of ground balls and we made the plays behind him."
Just 14-years-old, Bradford has been a find for the Micros this season, catching every game with the exception of the no hitter twirled against Marlboro. He's driven in a pair of runs and become a steady presence in the Milford lineup.
Dan Corsini has led the Micros offensively, hitting .471 through the first five games of the season. Another Milford High product, Mario Lee, is also hitting north of .300 through the early part of the year. Barney said he plans to use Lee on the mound more once his AAU season comes to a close.
Milford posted a 3-2 record through the first five games of the year. The early season slate has been impacted by injuries. Milford High's Nick Wimette has been battling an elbow injury and Joel Anderson, a Blackstone Valley Tech graduate, has been playing through a separated shoulder that has him limited to designated hitter duties early on.
Barney said he expects the team to be in the upper tier of the league by the time the regular season comes to a close, but the head coach said his team is still working to get to where it needs to be.
"Right now, we are in the middle of the pack," Barney said. "But we can win any game when we show up to
play. It's just about
trying to get the
kids in the right mentality. When we show up, we can win."
