Nashua All-Stars start districts strong

The Nashua Babe Ruth 15-year-old All-Stars opened strong in the District Tournament on Friday afternoon in Goffstown with a decisive win over Concord by a score of 12-2.

Nashua put pressure on Concord from the start, with multiple base hits in most of the six innings, and scoring runs in every inning.

Nashua pitching was outstanding at keeping Concord off the bases, giving up only two hits. Tyler Retkevicz pitched five innings for Nashua, not allowing a Concord hit until the fourth inning with Nashua already leading 8-0.

Jack Gauthier closed the last inning without surrendering a hit. Most Concord base runners were accounted for by fielding and throwing errors (four total) and four walked batters.

Concord pitched Steven Dreans all six innings. He gave up 10 hits and 10 walked batters over the course of the game, along with two runners reaching on error.

Concord hits were singles by Braden Miller and Sean McDonough.

Nashua’s 10 hits were provided by Retkevicz (two singles), Trevor Kelly (single and double), and singles by Cam Nixon, Gauthier, Jacob Hughes, Jafet Rodriguez, Seth Marcano and Vince Priore.

Nashua topped Manchester 3-1 in pool play on Saturday, but details weren’t available by press time.

Nashua will continue Sunday against Bow at 4 p.m. before completing district play on Monday against Goffstown at 5 p.m.

The top two teams in the five-team round robin will advance to the state tournament, which begins on Wednesday at Allard Park in Goffstown. If Nashua advances, its first game will take place Friday.
