Aiden Robey’s single in the bottom of the eighth inning plated John Reynolds with the winning run and capped a 13-12 comeback win for the Hull High baseball team over Rockland on Friday, its first of the season. Hull (1-5) forced extra innings with a two-out rally in the seventh inning, erasing a 12-8 deficit with four runs, all coming after the first two batters were retired. Reynolds started the rally by reaching on a throwing error. Ben Oliveiri followed with a double, and Max Iorio walked to load the bases. Robey followed with an RBI infield hit, and two more runs came across on walks to Nick Tiani and Luke Dunham. Rockland had a chance to end the game on Luke Richardson’s ground ball to shortstop, but failed to get the force out at second base, allowing the tying run to score. Hull, which lost 13-3 to this same Rockland team just two days prior, had a six-run first inning and took an 8-4 lead into the sixth inning, but Rockland scored five times in the frame and added three more in the seventh to take a 12-8 lead. Robey pitched five strong innings for Hull, and Tiani tossed the remaining three, earning his first varsity win in relief. Iorio, Oliveiri, and Reynolds each had three hits for Hull, and Robey had two.
This week, Hull suffered two tough luck losses in SSL action. On Monday, visiting Carver rallied for three runs in the top of the seventh inning to take a 4-2 win, spoiling a complete game, five-hitter by Iorio, who fanned 10 batters along the way. On Wednesday, the Hull comeback kids tied the game with a three-run seventh inning at Cohasset, only to have the Skippers win the game in the bottom of the seventh with a two-out RBI for 5-4 score. Iorio had two hits including a triple, and Robey went six innings on the mound.
