The Andover Townsman

---- — Legion baseball

Behind an outstanding pitching performance by veteran Alec Livingston and youngsters E.J. Perry IV and Max Krinsky, Andover crushed Peabody 8-0 on Monday. Livingston allowed one hit and struck out five over the first four innings, Perry added two one-hit innings and Krinsky pitched a perfect seventh. They received help from outstanding defense at shortstop by Burton Deady.

Cam Farnham led Post 8 with two hits, an RBI and two stolen bases. Ben Murphy and Dustin Hunt each drove in two runs and Mike Calabro reached base three items for the winners.

Ben Murphy knocked three hits and drove home two runs as Andover outlasted Swampscott 11-9 in nine innings on Saturday. Incoming freshman Andrew Selima continued to stoke with a pair of home runs and five RBIs and Andrew Bruno had two hits, including a key two-RBI single in the ninth. Max Krinsky, just 15 years old, worked the ninth for the save.

In a battle of staff aces, Andover’s Alec Livingston fell just short to Methuen’s Andrew Wells in a 4-1 loss last Wednesday. Livingston allowed just one earned run and five hits while striking out five, with help from some slick play by Burton Deady at shortstop.
