Tower Hill boys lax rallies to stun DMA

VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to Tower Hill's victory
Tower Hill (7-2) scored 7 of the game's 8 second half goals to rally for a 12-9 victory over previously-unbeaten DMA in boys lacrosse action Friday night.

DMA stormed out of the gate, scoring 4 of the game's first 5 goals. Justin Carroll had a hand in all four, scoring three goals while also dishing an assist in the game's first 8 minutes.

Tower Hill's Russell Applegate scored late in the quarter, but Tower Hill still trailed 4-2 after 12 minutes.

The game was even throughout the second quarter, with both teams scoring 3 goals to bring the score to 7-5, but P.J. Wolfe found the back of the net as the first-half horn sounded to give DMA an 8-5 lead, and seemingly a ton of momentum.

That momentum wouldn't last, as Tower Hill took advantage of an extra man opportunity, Applegate found Chris Miller to spark the first of two goals just 50 seconds apart. Andrew Pettit scored at the 7:39 mark to make the score 8-7.

William Hitchens scored to cut the bleeding for DMA, but just 39 seconds later, Miller found Applegate to return the favor from earlier in the quarter, and Tower Hill was down just one going into the 4th.

DMA clawed to that one-goal lead, but Tower Hill struck with 3 goals in just 39 seconds to not only tie the game for the first time, but suddenly claim a 2-goal advantage.

The run started when James Spruance found Pettit in front to tie the game with 7:17 remaining. 34 seconds later, Applegate completed a hat trick when he went over the right shoulder of the goaltender. Spruance then connected with Adam Mengden just 5 seconds after Applegate's goal, and the air seemed to be taken from DMA.

Pettit finished the scoring with his 6th goal, this off a feed from Mengden, as Tower Hill earned the victory.

Seven of Tower Hill's 12 goals came via assists, with Applegate claiming 2 helpers to go with his 3 goals.

DMA's Matt Hoffecker also scored twice for the Seahawks, who dropped to 8-1.

VIDEO: Highlights and reaction to St. Mark's win
Saint Mark's pitched a shutout in the first half, and then held on for a 10-7 girls lacrosse victory over Tower Hill Friday afternoon.

Tower Hill entered the contest having scored no less than 11 goals in any of their games, but the Spartans used a combination of draw and offensive control to play keep away, while racing out to a 4-0 halftime advantage.

The lead jumped to 6-0 when Alyssa Simmons and Claire Estes set each other up for goals in the opening two minutes.

Madeline Schwartz broke up the shutout with a free position goal at the 21:33 mark, but Kendra Schweizer's 4th goal of the game gave St. Mark's a 9-2 advantage with 12:55 remaining.

Tower Hill then stormed back into the game, winning a series of faceoffs, and Kiva Walsh and Schwartz both scored twice to get the deficit down to 3 with 1:16 left.

Saint Mark's took control of the ensuing faceoff, and was able to run out the clock to seal the victory.

Simmons finished with 2 goals and 3 assists, while Schweizer added an assist to also finish with 5 points on the game. Saint Mark's improved to 5-3 as their 2-game losing skid came to an end.

Schwartz's hat trick led Tower Hill (6-2), who lost their first in-state game.

Freeman error allows winning run, Phillies beat Braves 1-0

By Aaron Bracy/AP 11:18pm, April 24, 2015
Freddie Freeman mishandled Ben Revere's ground ball to first, allowing Freddy Galvis to score in the ninth to give the Philadelphia Phillies a 1-0 win over the Atlanta Braves on Friday night.

Galvis led off with a single to center against Jim Johnson (1-2), went to second on Cesar Hernandez's sacrifice bunt and third on a passed ball.

Revere hit a chopper toward first base and Galvis broke for home. Freeman had a play at the plate but he bobbled the ball. It was one of four errors for the Braves, who have lost four straight and eight of 11.

Ken Giles (1-0) pitched a scoreless ninth for the win.

Aaron Harang struck out six and walked one while allowing just two hits in eight shutout innings.



Holt's 8th-inning HR lifts Red Sox past skidding Orioles 7-5

By David Ginsburg/AP 12:48am, April 25, 2015
Brock Holt hit a tiebreaking, three-run homer off Darren O'Day in the eighth inning, and the Boston Red Sox beat Baltimore 7-5 Friday night to extend the Orioles' losing streak to five games.

David Ortiz and Hanley Ramirez also connected for the Red Sox, who have won three of five this season against the defending AL East champions.

Jimmy Paredes and Chris Davis homered for the last-place Orioles, whose five-game skid is their longest since September 2013.

After Tommy Hunter retired the first two Boston batters in the eighth, Brian Matusz (0-2) walked Pablo Sandoval. Pinch-hitter Allen Craig then hit a sharp bouncer off O'Day that skipped past third baseman Manny Machado, who was charged with an error.

Holt followed with a drive over the right-field scoreboard, his first homer since Sept 4, to bring home three unearned runs and make it 7-4.



Rocks can't hold leads in 9th or 10th, fall in 11th

By Sean Greene 11:51pm, April 24, 2015
The Blue Rocks bullpen couldn't hold leads in the 9th and 10th innings, and ultimately fell in the 11th as Frederick dropped Wilmington back below .500 with a 4-3 victory Friday night.

Zane Evans gave Wilmington a 2-1 lead in the top of the 8th when he scored Jack Lopez on an RBI single.

Yender Caramo was in line to pick up the win, but he save up a 2-out RBI single to Brenden Webb that tied the game at 2.

The teams traded 10th inning runs, with Evans again putting Wilmington ahead with a single, this time scoring Dominique Taylor, only to have Caramo serve up another 2-out RBI single, this time from Adrian Marin.

Andrew Edwards took over for Wilmington in the 11th, and gave up the decisive RBI single to Anthony Caronia.

Zane Evans went 3-for-4 with all 3 RBI for the Rocks. Evans entered with just 2 RBI on the season. Jack Lopez also went 3-for-4 in the loss.



Royals promote Finnegan from minors

By Associated Press 11:18pm, April 24, 2015
The Kansas City Royals have recalled left-hander Brandon Finnegan from Double-A Northwest Arkansas.

Finnegan was the 17th overall pick in last year's draft. He had a 1.29 ERA in seven regular-season appearances with the Royals in 2014, and then went 1-1 with a 10.50 ERA in seven postseason games. He spent most of the 2nd half of the season with the Blue Rocks before being called up to Northwest Arkansas, and ultimately the Royals for the playoff run.

The 22-year-old Finnegan was 0-1 with a 3.86 ERA in two starts with Northwest Arkansas at the time of the promotion. Royals manager Ned Yost said Finnegan will work as a reliever with the major league club.

Kansas City used five relievers in a 13-inning victory at the Chicago White Sox on Thursday night.

The Royals also optioned infielder Orlando Calixte to Triple-A Omaha on Friday. Calixte was hitless in two at-bats for the Royals.
