Tides beat rain, Sox
- Updated: July 9, 2020
The Northeast Tides were able to play on back-to-back nights despite the rain moving into Swampscott, Mass., on Wednesday night and raised their North Shore Baseball League record to 2-0 with a 10-5 triumph.
Down 5-3 early, the Tides were able to get a strong middle-relief performance from Matt Bergeron, who quieted the Sox offense as the Tides bats were able to come alive. Tides left hander Bryan Woolley pitched the final two innings and retired all six Swampscott batters he faced, three by way of strikeout.
Bergeron earned the win by throwing 2.1 innings. He surrendered one hit with no walks and five strikeouts. This included striking out the side in the Sox third offensive frame.
First baseman Drew Healey led the Tides offense with a triple, a double, two RBIs and two runs scored. Richie Fecteau finished 2-for-3 at the plate with an RBI double, and Sam LaChance went 2-for-4 with two RBIs.
The Tides will be off until Sunday at which time they will travel to Stackpole Field and take on the Saugus Wings in a doubleheader. Game one will start at 1 p.m. and Stratham’s Bobby Cliche is the scheduled starter for the first game of the twinbill.
