MIDDLEBURY, Vt. — The Adams Glass Senior Babe Ruth team has been on a roll lately, and it didn’t stop Saturday.

In the first game, Adams Glass plated two runs in the third inning via an RBI groundout by Kyle Sprague and an RBI single by Austin Medeiros for a 3-0 lead.
Middlebury made it close by scoring two in the fifth. After Middlebury loaded the bases, Cody Alexander plated a run via a groundout, and Joseph Neidorf singled in a run.
Adams Glass got more cushion in the top of the seventh when Austin Medeiros singled with the bases loaded, and with the help of a Middlebury error, the bases were cleared for a 6-2 lead.
Garrett McLean started and earned the win on the mound.
Nick Demarais and Medeiros led Adams Glass (13-10-2) with two hits apiece. McLean, Ryan McCall and Nick Uliva also had singles.
In the second game, Middlebury jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first, with Adams Glass cutting the lead to 3-1 with a run in the second via an RBI single by Uliva.
Adams Glass scored on three straight singles by Tristan Archambault, Garrett McLean and Jared McLean to take a 4-3 lead in the third inning.
Demarais started and settled down after the first, giving up just three hits as he pitched a complete-game victory. He struck out five.
Jared McLean finished with two singles.
“We are playing solid defense and scoring early, which allows our pitchers to throw with confidence,” Adams Glass coach John Demarais said. “Garrett, Kyle (Sprague) and Nick were outstanding on the mound for us (Saturday).”
