The Warriors' held on to a 3-0 lead going into fifth inning but the Lancers prevail with a two run win.
In the end, it came down to that bottom of the fifth inning. Up 3-0, the KP Warriors (7-13) were only nine outs away from ending their season with a win, but hits and error were their undoing. By the time the inning was over, the Norton Lancers (9-10) led 5-3, which was enough to keep their playoff hopes alive. “That’s the big one that you can obviously point to. We got lackadaisical offensively in the third and fourth after thet got the three run lead,” King Philip head coach Ed Moran said. “We need to keep pouring it on so if something like that happens we have a cushion.” Things looked well initially for the Warriors, when a rattled Lancers pitcher, Brian DiOrio, gave up a bases-loaded walk in the top of the first inning to allow …

Cam Walsh went 2-3 with one run scored as Warriors fall, 5-2.
Sometimes playing at home dosen’t give you the advantage. Unfortunately, the lack of a fence at their home field could have cost the Warriors a couple of runs in their 5-2 loss to the Franklin Panthers. “Obviously, when they [Franklin] took the lead, they were able to have their outfielders play deeper then they would if there was a fence to not get burnt with the long ball,” KP head coach Ed Mora said. “[With] a fenced-in field, we might have a couple of home runs and a different game, but that’s not where we’re playing.” The Panthers struck first in the top of the third inning, as Joe Palazini was able to score from third during a double play attempt that left Bryan Abbott out at second but batter Brandon Eccher safe at first. After a 1-…

Stoughton fell 6-0 to visiting KP on Monday.
In three starts this season, Stoughton’s Mike Dixon has an 0-3 record, but it would be tough to ask the junior to pitch any better than he has—logging 17 innings over these three starts, opposing teams have scored just six runs off him—but the Stoughton offense has been held scoreless in each of these three games. The third start came Monday at home against King Philip, a 6-0 win for the Warriors. Dixon pitched five-plus innings, allowing single runs in the third and fifth innings. He struck out five. King Philip tacked on four insurance runs in the top of the seventh, the final inning of play. With the loss, the Stoughton High baseball team falls to 5-7, while KP improves to 5-6. The two teams will meet again this Saturday at KP. “I can’t…

KP led 2-1 after the fifth inning, but could not hold on as they lost 7-2 to Foxborough.
By the fifth inning of Wednesday's King Philip-Foxborough baseball game, everything finally appeared to go KP’s (5-5 overall, 2-2 league) way. With a 2-1 lead going into the sixth inning and Foxborough defense struggling, KP looked to pounce on Foxborough (4-5, 2-4) before the opposite happened. “Eric [Cote] gave us a nice start and defense kinda fell apart on us for a little bit. We weren't deep enough or strong enough today to overcome those mistakes,” KP head coach Ed Mora said. A pair of three-run innings by Foxborough would cost KP the lead and give them a 7-2 defeat against their Hockomock League foe. A defensive struggle for the first five innings, Foxborough clung on to a 1-0 lead for most of the game, after a double by Mike …

Mistakes allow Norwood to leave town with a 9-5 victory
It was a contest with two teams going in opposite directions. Norwood was making a push to get back to .500, while King Philip was coming in on a two game losing streak after opening the season with three wins. When all was said and done, both teams walked off the field with identical 3-3 records as the Mustangs defeated the Warriors 9-5 in Wrentham. Things looked as though King Philip was going to break its two-game skid, as the home team batted around in the second inning, putting up four runs on three hits, a walk and a hit batsman. With two outs and a Brian Crafton on first via a walk, the Warriors got back-to-back singles off the bats off Nick Malatesta and Michael Murray to load the bases. Gavin Adams pushed across the first KP run …

After losing the upper hand in the seventh inning, Mansfield loses to King Philip, 8-6.
In what seemed like a solid win for the Mansfield High baseball team, King Philip came back from a two-point deficit at the top of the seventh inning to beat Mansfield, 8-6, Tuesday afternoon. Mansfield had the lead for the majority of the game, but lost it after a few solid hits from King Philip. KP's Charlie Harrington knocked in the first run of the game in the first inning, but Mansfield soon answered back. At the bottom of the first inning, Steve Nagle started Mansfield’s run with a singled, followed by a walk to Steven Wholley. Andrew Bukarus knocked them both in with a triple to give Mansfield the lead, 2-1. Michael Farrell brought in Nagle with a leadoff single and James Darragh brought in Farrell with a sacrifice ground ball, …
