The NEB 14U White DirtDogs played the USA Mavericks in a double-header at Pirone Park on Sat. 4/14, taking both games 11-10 and 15-4. Highlights of the games included great switch-hitting by Matt L. and back-to-back homers by Chris W. Another double-header was played at UMASS-Dartmouth on Sun. 4/15 against Rose Baseball (formerly the South Shore Shamrocks). NEB won the first game 14-3 with Matt L. collecting the Win after 5 no-hit innings, and then dropped the second game in a close 5-7 contest where the lead changed hands twice. Some costly errors in game #2 led to NEB’s loss, but the boys are coming together as a great team and this will be a great year. Stay tuned for next week’s games with the Central Mass. Hurricanes on Saturday and a rematch against the Mavericks on Sunday.
