NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - The last time New Providence and Brearley met in baseball was last year in the 2009 season and the Bears were victorious. The Pioneers were hoping to turn the tables this year, after coming off a win over Saint Patrick's. However, the Bears defeated New Providence on Monday afternoon by a score of 11-6.

In the top of first inning, Brearley took an early lead by scoring one. Calello, Brearley's pitcher, scored after getting on base with a single. In the bottom of the first, New Providence struck back with three of their own runs. Joe Meyers, Eddie Morgan, and John Quinn all scored to make the score 3-1 in favor of New Providence. The Bears cut the lead to one after McGeorge scored on a Cappda triple in the top of the second inning. The Pioneers didn't score any runs in the bottom of the second inning, making the score 3-2 after two innings of play.

In the top of third inning, Brearley exploded for six runs to make the score 8-3. Calello, Mate, Minniti, and Placca all had singles, and eventually scored. McGeorge hit a double, and Cappda hit a triple to help drive in runs. Brearley's Keating hit a single to drive in Cappda, which was the final run of the inning. The Pioneers tried to get back into the game in the bottom of the third, but were only able to come up with two runs as John Quinn and Steve Zimmerman crossed the plate.

The Bears didn't score any runs in the top of fourth inning, but the Pioneers did. They scored one run after Joe Meyers hit a single and eventually came around to score after John Quinn hit a triple. Both ball clubs were quiet in the fifth inning. In the top of the sixth inning, Brearley came up with two more runs as the lead off hitter Phillips scored, and Calello scored, as well, to make the score 10-6.

In the top of the seventh, the Bears tacked on one more run to make the score 11-6. The Pioneers went down quietly as no one reached base in the bottom of the seventh. "We didn't hit the ball in the key situations that we needed too, and they hit the ball very well," said Coach Brodeur of New Providence after the game.

With this loss, New Providence falls to 9-9 on the season, but will look to rebound as they play Saint Mary's today in New Providence at 4 p.m.

Letter to NP Mayor and Council

February 17, 2018
