WORCESTER – On the back of starting pitcher Shawn Babineau, the Worcester Bravhearts were able to shut out the Brockton Rox with a 4-0 win on Saturday night at Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field.
Babineau pitched seven scoreless innings, striking out 10 batters and walking only one. The Springfield College lefty earned the win for Worcester, giving up just two hits in the outing.
Bryce Hellgeth’s solo homer in the second inning got things started for the Bravhearts’ offense.
Worcester added two more runs in the bottom of the 5th inning starting with Mariano Ricciardi lead-off triple.
Ricciard scored on Jakob Sessa’s double. Sessa advanced to third on a passed ball, and scored when Jack Gardner singled him home.
In the bottom of the 7th inning, Gardner would single again, and score on a Brockton error.
The Rox didn’t advance a runner past first base until the ninth inning when they put runners in scoring position, but were unable to drive any home.
C.J. McKennett came in to relieve Babineau in the eighth, and Angelo Baez pitched the ninth to lock up the game for Worcester.
With the win, the Bravehearts move to 3-2, and Brockton falls to 6-4. The Bravehearts’ next game is scheduled for Sunday, June 9, against the Pittsfield Suns. The first pitch is scheduled for 4:05 PM at Hanover Insurance Park at Fitton Field.
