By Staff | Jul 3, 2016

The Indians captured the Nashua City Babe Ruth League Championship with a 9-8 win in the deciding game over the White Sox.

The White Sox took an early lead of 5-0 in the second inning on an RBI base on balls to Cam Nixon, followed by Mark Thibault’s grand slam. The Indians started chipping away at that lead in the fourth inning, with the White Sox walking in three runs.

In the fifth, the Indians scored four more to take a 7-5 lead. The White Sox battled back in the sixth, scoring three to take an 8-7 advantage, before the Indians rallied again to grab a 9-8 edge. They held on as the Sox left the tying run at third in the seventh.

White Sox pitching staff of Thibault (four innings), Nate Chisholm (part of the fifth) and Hector Rodriguez (three innings) held the Indians to six hits, but were hampered by nine walks and five errors.

Indians pitchers Joe Berman (four innings), Jack Gauthier (2 2/3) and Vincent Priore (1 1/3) collectively gave up 10 hits and walked eight, but the team played errorless ball behind them.

Priore (two singles) and Kyle Evans (single and double) led the Indians’ offense while Will Brooks and Jeffry Lugo also had singles.

The White Sox hitting was provided by Nixon (two singles), Reidar Kelsall (two singles and a triple), Thibault (two singles and grand slam), Jafet Rodriguez (a single and double), Braden McDonnell (double) and Nolan Foss (single).

In addition to winning the city title, the Indians also won the league’s regular season with a 9-3 record, and including the playoffs, won 11 straight to end the season.

The Indians were managed by Don Berman and assisted by Ryan Ferris, while the roster consisted of: Joe Berman, Will Brooks, Kyle Evans, Sam Charron, Vincent Priore, Jack Gauthier, Aaron Roberge, Brian Ascani, Nick Bourlier, Zach Rioux, Jeff Lugo and Alex Lambalot.
