Baseball earns back-to-back walk-offs


With the game tied in the bottom of the seventh inning, Gabriel Hernandez singled, advanced to second on a bunt, went to third on a wild pitch, then scored when Quinn McCarthy laid down a perfect two-strike suicide squeeze bunt to give Andover a walk-off, 2-1 win over Chelmsford last Friday, April 11. It was the Warriors’ second walk-off in as many days.

Max Krinsky earned the win, coming on in relief to strike out two batters and pick a runner off at first. McCarthy led the way with two hits.


Trailing by two runs heading into the seventh and final inning, Tim Awiszus tied the game with a two-run triple and Alex Brickman singled him home to give Andover a 5-4 walk-off victory over Billerica last Thursday, April 10.


Despite two hits and an RBI for E.J. Perry IV, Andover fell to Dracut 4-3 last Monday, April 7. Colin Flynn drove on the other Golden Warrior run.
