Beal 3-Run Homer Leads Goffstown Over Pelham 8-0 in First Round of Playoffs

Goffstown opened the Division II Baseball Tournament as the #2 Seed and hosted #15 Pelham (8-8) at St. Anselm College.

On a cool, windy (20-25mph) afternoon, offense was tough to come by thru 4 ½ innings as both teams had combined for just one hit apiece.

Things changed quickly when Ryan Beal stepped up in the bottom of the 5th with two outs, two on, clinging to a 2-0 lead.

Beal took a mighty cut at a first pitch curve ball and hit a towering 400+’ home run into the teeth of the wind, deep into the parking lot beyond the left center field fence.

Goffstown would go on to an 8-0 win and now advances to the Quarterfinals, hosting #7 St. Thomas Aquinas (10-7) on Saturday afternoon at 4 pm at St. Anselm College.
