The Fishermen baseball team brought home a win on the road on Monday after a 4-2 win over Saugus.

Going into the seventh inning, the score was tied at an even 2-2. A hit by senior Matt Heckman, followed by a bunt by Liam Lyons, put the pair on base. Marc Phinney put Gloucester ahead after driving in Heckman. A hit by junior Jack Sperry allowed Lyons to come home and end the game.

“We’ve been doing very good, we’ve had a close couple of games,” said senior captain Liam Lyons.

After a tough loss last year against Beverly that took the Gloucester out of tournament contention, the team is hoping to change that this year.

“We don’t usually execute [in games] right away, we wait until the end,” said Lyons. “I’m hoping to make the playoffs this year.”

Gloucester has improved to 5-2 this season and their next game will be played on Friday in Beverly at 4pm. Their game tonight against Salem has been postponed indefinitely due to rain.
