Injuries add to Patriots’ woes

May 26, 2010

“The walking wounded” might be an apt description for the Revere High baseball team these days after another pair of injuries to key players ths past week.

Russ Goodwin, who has stepped into the role of prime starting pitcher because of injuries to other Patriot hurlers, suffered a groin injury when he slid into second base in last week’s game with Lynn Classical. When he returned to the mound, he began to favor that leg, which altered his pitching motion, and he soon hurt his elbow.

Later in the week, Dale Paradise, who is leading the team in hitting with a .463 average, suffered a forearm injury while applying a tag on a Marblehead runner, causing him to leave that game and head for the hospital. The extent of Dale’s injury still was unknown as of press time.

“It’s been a tough year for us in a lot of ways,” said RHS head coach Joe Ranno, who has called up four players from the JV team, Mike Ferrante, Drew and Vin Lauria, and Jimmy Ortiz, to take the place of his injured ballplayers.

Although highlights were few for the Patriots in the losses to Classical (16-2) and Marblehead (9-0), there were some bright spots. Paradise had a fine game at the plate against Classical, going three for three, including two doubles with an RBI. Sophomore Ferrante pitched well against Marblehead, allowing just four earned runs, while Chris Adreani banged out three hits, of which two were two baggers.

Ranno and his crew were set to close out the 2010 campaign this week with a full slate of games that will test the depleted Patriot pitching staff. They played at Lynn English under the lights at Fraser Field on Monday; travel to Peabody today (Wednesday); host Malden tomorrow; and host Beverly Friday in a makeup of last Wednesday’s rainout.
