Foxborough senior Nick Sestito went 3-3 with two RBI and a pair of doubles in his first game on the high school level.
Down 1-0 with two outs in top of the first inning, it looked like Foxborough pitcher Brandon Fowler’s day was done after getting hit in the side of the knee with a ball. Deciding to fight the pain and play on, the senior captain's nine strikeout performance was one of the deciding factors of the game as Foxborough won their season opener against the Stoughton Black Knights, 6-4, Tuesday. A passed ball allowed Pat Jackman to score from third to give the Black Knights the initial 1-0 lead, but the Warriors took the lead in the bottom of the second inning when Nick Sestito knocked in two runs off a left field double. One batter later, sophomore Owen Campbell’s single to center field allowed Fowler to score giving the Warriors a 3-1 lead after…
Foxborough High baseball team to face Stoughton in season opener this afternoon.
Despite some uncertainty at a few positions, the Foxboro High School baseball team is in a better place than last season. With a year under his belt, coach Billy Sittig has noticed that the bad habits that existed in his first year are not around at the start of his second year at the helm. “We’re excited. We got most of our lineup back,” Sittig said. “You can see their confidence is the biggest thing. You can see that’s improved.” After a season of multiple one and two-run losses, that confidence is going to be needed to get those close wins that evaded the team last year. “We were in a lot of tight games that young teams don’t really win, but I think we’re a more experienced team and I think we win those games this year,” Sittig. On the …

Foxboro Jrs struggled in a 13-4 loss to Sudbury.
There’s been no shortage of effort coming from the Foxboro Jrs this season. However, teams struggle, and that is exactly what happened today as Post 93 fell 13-4 to Sudbury. Unfortunately the score is no indication of the result. Until the top of the sixth, Foxboro was tied 4-4 when Sudbury blew the game open and scored three runs on three hits. A costly error and a wild pitch early in the inning gave Sudbury their run opportunities. Sudbury built off of Foxboro’s three up, three down in the sixth and exploded for six more runs on seven hits. Before Sudbury’s laser show, Foxboro made it a game. Eric Desimone got the nod, and pitched 5 and 1/3, allowing six runs but settled down nicely after the rough start. Post 93, down 4-0, battled in …

Foxboro had their seventh straight loss Wednesday Night.
Nothing has gone right for the Foxboro Jr's this year. Baseball is a cruel game and Franklin didn't make matters better, handing Foxboro their seventh straight loss with a 4-2 victory Wednesday Night. On the bump for Foxboro was ace Jeff Perillo, who delivered his third complete game of the season, tasting victory on only one start. The all-star lefty gave up 4 earned, struck out 6 and walked three on 8 hits. Foxboro came out hot mashing three hits in the top of the second, two landed shortstop Chris Buchanon and DH Dan Riley on second giving Foxboro the 1-0 lead. The lead lasted three innings until Franklin fired back with a run of their own on two hits including a double to notch the score at even. Defensive woes turned out crucial in …

Foxborough looks ahead to their remaining games including Saturday's Hits For Hope.
Last Thursday, Foxborough’s visit to Bishop Feehan was cut short by a rain delay in the 5th inning. With a trip to the playoffs on the line for both teams and the score tied 4-4, the Warriors returned to Bishop Feehan to play the final two innings. In a game where every play and hit took on more meaning, the Warriors fell short 5-4 to the Shamrocks. Picking up the game in the top of the 6th inning, the Shamrocks played with everything on the line. Looking to continue their drive to the postseason, the Warriors’ batters were quickly disposed of as the Shamrocks played with intensity. “I told them that they weren't going to practice after so I said give it everything you got for 2 innings and they did,” said Shamrocks coach Mark Cooke. …

Sharon High School varsity baseball team scored six runs without an RBI to beat Foxborough, 6-2
The Sharon High School varsity baseball team scored six runs without an RBI to beat visiting Foxborough, 6-2, on Senior Day in Sharon Saturday. Warriors senior captain Steve Fitzmaurice, in his first 2011 start, made five run-scoring wild pitches -- three straight to Sharon's Jake Dennis in the third -- before leaving with one out in the third due to a shoulder injury. "He's our best player. He's usually our centerfielder. I wanted to give him a chance to get a start today," Foxborough head coach Billy Sittig said. "It was probably my fault for leaving him out there a little bit too long. He had some control issues, but he hadn't started a game for us all year. "I think he has a little bit of a shoulder issue, but we'll get it checked out…

Foxborough Baseball falls to Stoughton, 6-0.
Most freshmen wouldn’t be ready to take the mound in a high school varsity baseball game. Luckily for the Stoughton Black Knights, Mike Gallagher is not like most freshman. “Pressure doesn’t seem to bother Mike,” said Stoughton coach Mike Armour “He’s a gamer. He comes to play every day.” That ability to play pressure free was a big factory in their win over Foxboro. Keeping runners off base, the Black Knights picked up a solid 6-0 win over the Warriors. In addition to Gallagher’s performance on the mound, the Black Knights made things difficult for the Warriors on offense starting in the top of the 3rd. With Mike Connelly on 3rd, Sean O’Malley drove him in with a line drive up the middle to give the Black Knights a 1-0 lead after 3 …

Down 4-0 after the 1st inning, Foxborough made a comeback winning 8-5 over Boston Latin Academy.
Warriors coach Billy Sittig wasn’t going to let his team stay behind after Boston Latin Academy an early lead. Down 4-0 after the 1st inning, Sittig called upon his team to come play and play harder. “I told them that we needed to compete a lot harder. I didn’t see them playing very hard in the 1st inning. Latin Academy took advantage of our inability to play the game,” said Sittig. The pep talk must of worked since Foxborough came roaring back to get an 8-5 win against the Dragons. Already down by 4 to the Dragons, Foxborough would begin their come back in the bottom of the 2nd. With TJ Notarangelo on 2nd, Nick Tredo hit a double to get Notarangelo home and cut the lead to 3. The bats came alive for the Warriors in the bottom of the 3rd…
