Senior pitcher Will Stewart allowed just four hits Friday afternoon against visiting Bourne, pitching a complete game shutout in his final regular-season appearance on the mound. The Vineyarders defeated the Canalmen 3-0 to end the season with a 12-8 record. They will learn their seeding for the MIAA tournament on Tuesday.

Stewart threw 80 pitches total, working himself out a jam in the third and fifth innings and relying on the support of the steady Vineyard defense to protect the lead.

“He was able to just shut it down,” head coach Gary Simmons said after the game.

“It’s great to have a win going into the playoffs,” Stewart said. “Playoffs are all about who has momentum.”

The Vineyarders put two runs on the board in the bottom of the first thanks to the bat of junior shortstop Jack Roberts. Roberts would score again in the bottom of the fifth on a Ramon Espino double.

With two outs and the bases loaded in the top of the seventh, senior leftfielder Noah Stobie made a stellar running grab to preserve the shutout and the Vineyard win.

“In the past, the Senior Day game has been the end,” said Stewart, a four-year starter. “[Now] it’s more of a beginning than an end.”
