Londonderry blanks Exeter for third shutout in a row
Londonderry posted its third consecutive shutout victory when it clobbered Exeter, 16-0, in six innings Monday. The Lancers, who ended last week by blanking both Nashua South and Andover, Mass., haven’t allowed a run in the last 20 innings.
“It’s about time he got a break,” Londonderry coach Brent Demas said. “We’ve lost two games for him in the seventh inning where we kind of kicked it away in both games.
Exeter did its best to kick the game away Monday. The Blue Hawks committed a season-high eight errors and slipped to 8-8.
“We did some things that were uncharacteristic for us defensively — at least compared to other days,” Exeter coach Kevin McQueen said. “At times we’ve been great (in the field), it’s just a matter of seeking some consistency. Some mistakes kind of followed up some other mistakes.
The victory raised Londonderry’s record to 14-4. The Lancers can secure the No. 1 seed for the Division I tournament by beating Merrimack on Wednesday.
Corey finished the game with six strikeouts. He has 38 strikeouts in 42 innings this season.
“Their pitching has been great all season,” McQueen said. “They’re a solid club. If you’re 14-4 in this league you’re doing some good things.”
