Roundup: Cam Troup clutch for East Bridgewater

Junior shortstop Cam Troup hit a two-out single in the bottom of the eighth inning to score Chris Huss and lift eighth-ranked East Bridgewater over No. 15 Marshfield, 3-2, in the first round of the O’Donnell Memorial Baseball Tournament on Monday.

The win avenged a loss to the Rams in the tournament’s championship last season.


“This was a huge win for us,” Vikings coach Pat Cronin said. “It was a huge win for us because Marshfield is a Division 1 school and we are Division 3.”

After Marshfield went ahead in the top of the sixth, East Bridgewater tied the score, 2-2, in the bottom of the inning when Brett Palaschak hit a single to knock in Ethan Forrest. Forrest, a senior cocaptain, also went the distance on the hill without giving up an earned run. He allowed five hits and struck out 12.
