On opening day, Stop & Shop victorious over Houlihans’ Little League Baseball team

Despite a solo home run from T.J. Wolf in the first inning on April 11, Stop & Shop pitcher Nick Rodriguez allowed only one Houlihans run in four innings, while he contributed his own double in the game. Julian Perez stole third base and home after walking in the fifth, and Brad Deczynski closed the inning in scoreless fashion. Although Randy Leonardo pitched well for Houlihans, Deczynski hit a solo home run and a double, scoring three RBI’s to lead Stop & Shop to a 7-1 victory.
