Ben Bowden has been getting the job done at the plate, on the mound and in the field for the English baseball team all season, and he pulled through again Thursday in a 3-1 win over Revere at Fraser Field.Bowden allowed two hits, walked one and struck out 13 - and the only run was unearned."We needed him to come out and do the job, and he did," English coach Joe Caponigro said about Bowden. "We didn't hit the ball very well ... he's had a great year pitching, offensively and on defense. He's a very good first baseman as well."The game was scoreless until the fourth inning when Matt Burnham doubled in Matt Merritt, who had singled and stolen second. Drew Gentile singled to drive in Burnham, giving the Bulldogs (9-6) a 2-0 lead. English scored again in the sixth inning when Jeremy Lessard walked, stole second and came home on a single by freshman Kyle O'Connor.Revere scored its only run in the sixth inning on a walk, a stolen base and an error. The Patriots got an excellent pitching performance from Noah Jaynes, who allowed five hits and struck out seven.
