Game today at EPHS 4:30. (RMS at The Rec at 4:30 also)

The Townies came away with a walk-off 4-3 win against Middletown High on April 29th at EPHS. East Providence took a 1-0 lead in their half of the first inning on a leadoff walk to jack McKnight who stole 2nd base and moved to third on a nicely placed sacrifice bunt from Kyler Lorenz. McKnight then scampered home on a pass ball. The Townies would score two more in the fourth inning to take a 3-0 lead. Colin Roche hit a double and stole second base. Oliver Andrews walked and also stole a base putting runners on second and third. A bunt single by Steve Estrella and an errant throw scored two Townies.

Middletown however, rallied to tie the game at 3 in the top of the sixth inning. A leadoff double by the Islanders and an error scored runs for Middletown. Oliver Andrews made a great stop of a line drive but his overthrow to first brought in the runs. The score remained tied at three until the eighth inning. With two outs in the eighth, Colin Roche walked. Next Oliver Andrews walked and Tim Robitaille slashed an infield single to load the bases. The game ended with the 4-3 Townie win when Steve Estrella plated Colin Roche with a solid single to center field.
