O’Bryant romps Randolph

On the back of a standout performance by left handed ace Stanley Pena, O’Bryant soared past Randolph this morning at Madison Park in Roxbury.  The junior hurler worked six innings of two-hit ball, striking out 10 along the way.

“I felt good,” he said after the 16-4 victory. “The curveball was working for me.  That’s what kept us in the game.”

The game was tight early, but things opened up for the Tigers (4-1 overall, 2-1 league) in the fourth when catcher Shawn Jaglall doubled to left, scoring two.  Stanley Pena then helped his own cause by driving in a run on a fielder’s choice.  This set the stage for center fielder Jeff Polanco, who hit a booming shot to right center for a two-run inside-the-park home run.  Polanco then tripled to the same neighborhood in the sixth, thus hitting for the cycle to go with five RBI.

Randolph (0-5, 0-1 Patriot League) could only muster three singles on the day, but did plate three in the seventh.

This makes for a season sweep for the Tigers, who beat Randolph 8-2 on  April 7 in Randolph.

Pena is confident about the team’s chances moving forward, but knows the competition within the conference is tough.

“We did a lot of good things out there, the defense was good, but we still have things to work on.”

O’Bryant plays Fenway at 3:30 p.m. on Monday back at Madison Park.
