Marcelle throws 2 hit shutout as Eagles nip Tide, 1-0

Shawn Marcelle tossed a complete-game two-hit shutout with nine strikeouts, at Bristol last Saturday to lead his Mount Abraham Eagles to a 1-0 win over the visiting Spaulding Crimson Tide. The game's lone run came in the first inning when Sam Lieberman delivered a two-out single that scored Marcelle. Sam Fuller suffered the complete game loss for the Crimson Tide, who fell to 2-3 with the loss. In six innings of work Fuller gave up the lone run on four hits, with seven strikeouts and a pair of walks. A strong outing, but not good enough. The Eagles fared much better than other area baseball teams last weekend.

In Vergennes on Saturday, Matt Goulet clubbed a three-run homer and a two-run double to lead the Milton Yellow Jackets to a 10-8 win over the hometown Commodores. Behind 7-6 going into their final at bat Milton tied the game at 7-7 when Anthony Campbell hit a solo homerun. The next two hitters reached base and Goulet doubled home a run. Milton would plate one more on a wild pitch to take a 9-7 lead. Dustin Paquette would then drive home Goulet with a suicide squeeze making it 10-7 Milton, and they hung on to win 10-8.

In addition to Goulet's heroics the Yellow Jackets got offensive production from elsewhere. Dylan Leggett had two hits and drove in a pair, while Patrick Gilbert contributed a solo homerun to the win. Garrett Baker picked up the win in Relief for Milton, who claimed their first win of the win becoming 1-3 on the year.

Collin Curler smacked two doubles while Logan Williams blasted a double and a RBI single for the Commodores in defeat. Andrew Lucia blasted a three run homerun and Charlie Stapleford pitched in with a triple, adding two more huge hits for the Commodores offense.Williams took the loss on the mound for Vergennes, who fell to 2-1 with the loss.
