SHREWSBURY – A busy day of baseball ended with a pair of wins for the Shrewsbury Legion Post 397 team on Friday in Framingham, as the squad defeated Northborough and Framingham in both halves of an afternoon doubleheader.

Opening the slate of games, Shrewsbury first shut out Northborough, winning by a 6-0 margin.

Shrewsbury then faced the host Framingham team, which it beat 7-2.

The wins improved Shrewsbury’s win-loss record to 12-2 this summer.

They also came just a day after Shrewsbury dominated Sturbridge with an explosive 22-1 defeat on Thursday.

Shrewsbury remained in first place in the Zone 4 Legion standings as of Saturday morning, just past the midpoint of this year’s season.

Despite back-to-back losses on Tuesday and Wednesday, the team is now soaring toward a high profile game next week at Polar Park in Worcester.

Shrewsbury will take on Milford under the lights on Tuesday for a 6 p.m. start.

Northborough, meanwhile, has struggled this summer.

Their win-loss record sat at 4-9 as of Saturday.

The team, likewise, remained within the bottom half of Zone 4 standings despite a win over Framingham on Thursday.

Northborough will be back in action this coming Wednesday with a game against Main South on the campus of the College of the Holy Cross in Worcester.
