Gashouse Gorillas of Division III?
Newbury College and Bridgewater State got together for a Division III baseball game this past Monday at Bridgewater’s home field.
The two teams combined for 58 runs.
The home team scored 57 of those runs.
Yes, just your old-fashioned 57-1 thumping.
Bridgewater scored at least 8 runs in each of its first five times at-bat.
Three different Bridgewater players drove in at least 7 runs.
During one four-inning stretch, Bridgewater sent 64 men to the plate, and 52 reached base.
Bridgewater was the recipient of 20 walks and 4 HBPs.
Newbury had eight men reach base during the game … Bridgewater had one inning in which fewer than eight reached base.
