Mulverhill and Longe lead Red Sox in nailbiter Against Pirates
Red Sox Rookie 3B Dane Mulverhill shocked the crowd with an historic grand slam in his first Little League at bat. His blast, part of a two-hit game, came in the first inning after 1B Brock Longe had hit a three-run home run in his first at-bat of the season. Longe had a three-hit game, adding two triples as well. LF Anthony Matias and RHP/SS Sam Henry each had two hits. SS/RHP Will Hill and C Harper Cutler each had a hit and scored two runs. Henry, Hill, and Longe pitched for the Red Sox. The Pirates rallied from an early deficit with big hits from SS/RHP Devin Speno, C Nick Gerard, and LF Sam Madow. RHP Wayland Walsh gritted through five innings in relief to keep the Pirates in the game.
