Monmouth, Boothbay make best of mismatch

...Monmouth has bigger goals. The Mustangs hope — and expect — to contend in Class C South this season. Friday was victory No. 1 in the books on the path to that goal. But it was also a teaching moment for the winning side.

"You just really focus on keeping kids in the game, in the present, working timing," Monmouth co-coach Dave Kaplan said. "And actually, Boothbay kids hit the ball, so that was good, got to work the defense and got to really work on timing. It's hard. It's hard. It took a few times through the lineup to start hitting the ball, but they really have to learn to time stuff, fast or slow."

The Mustangs suffered their only strikeout in the first inning, then showed better plate discipline in drawing 15 walks.
