Lowell wins to clinch AAA title

Senior shortstop Max Newman led off the bottom of the first inning with a home run and finished 2-for-3 with four RBIs as the Lowell baseball team beat Washington 12-2 at Big Rec on Wednesday to clinch the Academic Athletic Association title.

Narin Leininger (3-for-3) and Max Schumm (2-for-3) added multiple hits for the Cardinals (21-5-1, 13-0 AAA), who won a rematch of the last two San Francisco Section title games.

“We have 10 seniors on this team and we’ve been playing together for a long time,” Newman said. “The chemistry is great and we’ve been playing some good ball lately.”

Washington (13-13-1, 10-3) threatened in the top of the first, putting runners on second and third with one out. But Lowell starter Evan Brydon struck out the next two batters to get out of the inning.
