With the win, Upper Valley improves to 15-13 overall, while Keene falls to 16-13. The two squads currently sit in third and fourth, respectively, in the NECBL Northern Division.
Chris Berry – following an impressive two-homer performance on Tuesday evening – continued to swing the bat well with a single to begin the game to center and a solo homer in the fifth. He tallied three hits out of the lead off spot.
Following Anthony Quirion’s base knock, Berry scored from second. Austin Wilhite, who reached after getting plunked moved to third on the single and scored on an error. Meanwhile, Quirion would tack on another hit and RBI as he led off the fourth with a home run.
Upper Valley finished its scoring in the top of the sixth as Anthony Meduri drove in Greg Hardison from third. The latter reached on a walk to kick off the frame.
Jordan DiValerio turned in a dominant performance on the bump, earning his first win as a starter in 2018. The Berwick, Pa. native dealt six strong innings, striking out six and allowing just one earned. Jordy Allard and A.J. Franklin combined to throw the final three innings without surrendering a run.
