Jul 28, 2020 by

Published July 28, 2020 By DAN PAWLOWSKI WAKEFIELD — As far as regular season games go, it was as close to a wild-card play-in as it gets. The Loafers cruised to a 7-0 victory last night at Moulton Park behind 12 hits and a quality start from Dan Cardillo (5IP, 2H, 5K, 2BB, 0ER) to improve to 2-3 while the Slappers fell to 1-4 with sole possession of last place in the Twi League.

Published in the July 23, 2020 edition. By DAN PAWLOWSKI WAKEFIELD — The mound at Walsh Field is in perfect condition. Yes, the same goes for the rest of Wakefield High’s recently re-opened baseball diamond but Wakefield fans spent most of last night’s Senior Townies game fixated on the clay that pitchers Cory Sample and Colby Lee molded through a combined shutout. The two only surrendered a total of three hits in seven innings during a 1-0 win over Peabody. Wakefield’s bats were kept mostly quiet as well until the bottom of the 5th when they got their only run on an Aidan Riley walk with the bases loaded. Mike Iannuzzi walked to start the inning and broke for second on a hit-and-run when Timmy Connolly connected on his second base hit of the day. Iannuzzi...
