LOCAL BASEBALL: Dube, Greene do well in summer league games

Former St. Paul standout right-hander Kyle Dube found himself on the mound at Dunkin Donuts Park in Hartford on Wednesday night.

Dube got the start for the Terryville Black Sox in their Connecticut Twilight League Summer Baseball Classic clash with the Wethersfield Dodgers. Dube permitted just two hits over four scoreless innings and struck out four for Terryville in its 5-0 win. The former Division I standout at Fairfield University was the winning pitcher.

Dube got some solid help from his defense. Second baseman Kyle Tehan made a diving catch ranging into the outfield on a pop fly, then slid to stop a grounder on the outfield grass before throwing to first baseman Kyle Skidmore for the out. Centerfielder Billy Armstrong ran down a deep fly ball near the left centerfield fence for another nice play.

Greene steps up for Bombers

The Brass City Bombers needed a catcher on Thursday evening against the Glastonbury Arrows at Municipal Stadium, and they turned to John Greene.

Greene hadn’t caught a game since his junior season at Holy Cross High School, but he stepped up behind the plate and acquitted himself pretty well. At the plate, Greene drew a walk and later scored as Brass City held on for a 12-8 win over Glastonbury.
