10 SPORTS & RECREATION MAY 15-21, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | PAWTUCKET EDITION Nault walked, and after a passed ball put runners in scoring position, Gia Porcelli, who ran for Costa, scored when Kasey Contreras' grounder was misplayed. Nault and Contreras then scored on an error by the center fielder, who dropped a fly ball. The Saints added two more runs in the third, but really broke out in the fourth as 10 players went to bat and scored four runs to finish Roy's day on the mound. Tori Jacques and Taylor Troiano began the rally with back-to-back singles, Jillian Serra hit a run-scoring double to left field, and Simonds also drove in a run with a base hit to left. "I thought Jillian hit the ball really hard," LaBree said. "And freshman Jordan Taylor also stung a couple of them. I'm glad to have her back. She was fighting the flu and she was out for about a week." Simonds, meanwhile, was on her game, as she struck out 15 batters, including six in a row, and walked no one. She gave up a leadoff single up the middle by Lexi Parker, a double to left in the fourth to Talia St. Angelo, and a two-out single to left in the sixth to Venturini. "Sami pitched well," LaBree said. "She pounds the strike zone like she always does. She didn't walk anybody and that's the key and she knows that. I've seen her throw better, but she threw well enough to win it. She keeps us in the game, and when they do make contact, we have a good defense, so she doesn't have to worry about that." The Saints were two days removed from their last victory, a 9-0 win over Toll Gate, as Simonds struck out 16 batters in pitching a five-hitter. Troiano led the way offensively with three hits with two runs batted in, and Serra added two hits and three RBIs. With four games left in his team's regular season, including Saturday afternoon's game at Block Island, LaBree wants to keep his players focused to win the division. "It's getting to that time of the year – school is ending, seniors want out, everybody's thinking prom – that they start to lose focus a little bit," he said. "We just have to keep them focused."
