BOLTON, MA: The Bolton Babe Ruth team recently wrapped up a remarkable season, going 12-0 and outscoring opponents 146-25.
Bolton enjoyed stellar pitching from Thomas Bunnell, Adam Heislein, Devon Jackson, Erich Vinacco, Holden Lutz, Nick King, Max Drugge, Kyle Tremblay, Ben Gugliemino and Ryan Grady, who combined to pitch two shutouts and five one-run games, with a team ERA of less than 2.00. Cody Wold, Austin Tarullo and Erich Vinacco handled the catching duties, with Devon Jackson filling in when needed. Bolton also benefited from speed on the basepaths, led by Zach Marshall and Drugge.
In the Aug. 12 championship game, Bolton jumped out early against host Natick, building a lead it would not relinquish in a 13-4 victory. Jackson and Colin McCormack led off with walks. Heislein then delivered an RBI single. Marshall walked, then stole second and third before scoring on a fielder's choice by Drugge. Starting pitcher Bunnell singled, as did Grady. Bunnell was efficient on the mound, as well, working three hitless innings, striking out five and walking one.
Heislein came on to in the fourth to pitch three solid innings of relief, striking out four while allowing just two hits, two runs and a walk. Natick managed to muster a pair of runs in the fourth on an error and a fielder's choice to eliminate the Bolton shutout bid.
