The EL Spartan varsity baseball team lost to Longmeadow today 7-3. Andy "The Iceman" pitched well for most of the game, but Longmeadow put the bats on the ball pretty well in the later innings, and EL didn't mount a rally until there were 2 outs in the 7th.
The Lancers held EL hitless and scoreless through 3. Justin Garcia worked a walk in the 4th, and advanced from 1st to 3rd with some heads up base running on a wild pitch. Andrew Kingston knocked him home with a long sacrifice fly.
Colin Piemonte, perhaps the best #8 hitter in the league, stayed hot with a hit in the 5th.
With 2 outs in the 7th, Dan Richards laced a single to center, Colin collected his 2nd hit, Danny Miller was hit by a pitch, and Ryan Lavelle had a 2 RBI base hit to left. That was the end of the scoring, and the Spartans fell to 12-7 on the season.
