Video: Hillers Baseball Hands Ashland 1st loss of season

Whenever the Ashland Clockers and Hopkinton Hillers meet up in just about any sport, it always seems to be an amazing game. On Monday April 25th it was no different, a great battle between 2 very good teams. The Hillers ended up taking the game 6-5 but it was due to some late offense that helped Hopkinton get their 2nd win of the season and hand Ashland their 1st loss.

Hillers plated 4 runs in the bottom of the 3rd, Ashland struck back in the top of the 4th with 3 of their own. Ashland claimed the 5-4 lead in the top of the 6th as Michael Crupi hit a 2 run double to score Shamus Reardon and Ronan Bates. The Hillers would not go down quietly however, In-fact, they would not go down at all as DH, Drew Simi tied up the game with a sacrifice fly out and then Catcher, Alex Reynolds gave the Hillers the 6-5 lead with a single. Hopkinton never looked back as they took the victory. View the highlights of the great game below.
