The Senior Braves captured the Tewksbury Youth Baseball Championship winning the last two games of a best of three series versus a tough, expansion Reds team.

After losing the first game of the series 10-5, the Braves stormed back  with 25-5 and 12-0 victories to win the title.

Will Timmons held the Braves at bay in the first game of the series, while also reaching base on three occasions and scoring each time. 

The Braves bats came alive in the second game as Chris Antonelli reached base six times, with two hits and four walks, while David Miller registered three hits along with two walks. Cam Legvold (2 doubles, 2 walks, 4 RBIs ), Matt Fronduto (4 hits, 4 RBIs), Robert Evangelista (3 doubles, a walk, 6 RBIs) and Andrew Froio (3 hits, 2 walks, 3 RBIs) also contributed as the Braves evened the series at one game a piece.

In the finale, Fronduto tossed a three hit shutout, striking out seven, while the Braves bats continued to stay hot. Legvold and Fronduto each had three hits while Antonelli and Miller reached base four times, scoring three times each. Legvold also recorded 5 RBIs.

The win culminated a strong season for the Braves, who posted a 9-3 regular season record and went 4-1 in the playoffs. Cam Legvold, David Miller, Andrew Froio, Alex Kelleher and Jon Keefe completed their TYB careers  with a town title. 

Anthony DiSanto, Jake Nordstrom, Colin Bozek, Rich Kramer and Cam Loder rounded out the Braves roster and all made contributions down the playoff stretch.

The Reds, despite being an expansion team, finished in first place during the regular season with a 10-2 record and had a very good run in the playoffs.
