Windham collects thirteenth victory with win over Tir-Town By David Field
WINDHAM-Windham Merchants racked up another win over Tri-Town in Zone 3 American Legion Baseball action on Thursday, July 11. Windham defeated the Tri-Town team 2-0.
Joey Francoeur took the hill for Windham to start the game. He pitched five solid innings before giving up to reliever Cody Dube. Windham put runs up in the second when Joey Francoeur reached base on a walk. With one out, Tanner Laberge roped a single to put runners at the corners. Ethan Petty came to bat and crushed a ball deep to the outfield to record a double and plate Francoeur and Laberge to give Windham all they would need to win the game. The game was threatened by dark skies and distant rumbles of thunder. However, the game was able to be completed and was finished with a fine rainbow presentation at the end. Windham next faces Andy Valley on Saturday July 13.
