Flame thrower Narron, Brookline Shut Down Framingam, 5-0
Warriors improve to 6-3..
Campbell Narron continued his hot-streak of pitching with seven innings of shutout baseball in Brookline's 5-0 win over visiting Framingham on Friday at Warren Field.
Narron is on a streak that even head coach Joe Campagna hasn't seen before in his long-tenured run as Warriors head coach. The junior right-hander has pitched shutout baseball in five of his six starts this season, and he hasn't allowed a run in 36 of his 38 innings pitched to date.
"He's as good as I've ever had," said Campagna.
Narron helped Brookline move to 6-3 on the season with 13 strikeouts in the latest shutout victory. He struck out eight of the first nine hitters and also scored a run in the fourth inning.
The offense gave Narron enough run support as well with 11 hits, and Jake Morgenstern broke the game open with with a hit in the bottom of the sixth inning to make it 4-0 Warriors.
The Warriors did struggle with runners on base as they stranded 13 in the game, but they can now say that they have three hitters hitting over .300 consistently. Narron, Morgenstern, and Andrew Colgan are all above of the .300 mark on the season, which bodes well for the Warriors as they head into the halfway mark with a 4-0 mark in the Carey Division of the Bay State Conference.
