by Chris White The Salem Cardinals clinched the Senior Babe Ruth Southern League championship with a 6-5 win against Monadnock at Holman Stadium in Nashua on Thursday, July 14. The Cardinals finished the regular season tied for first place with a record of 11-3 and then won four consecutive games in the double elimination league tournament to take the title. Salem plated two early runs in the first inning
of the championship game, but Monadnock responded with a run in the second and four runs in the third to go up 5-2. Salem battled back in the home half of the third, though, scoring four runs to take the lead for good. Salem’s offense was led by DJ Swarbrick (2 for 3, two RBIs, run), Matt Barbin (2 for 3, two RBIs, run), Ryan Decker (1 for 3, two RBIs), and Colin Reed (2 for 3, two runs). The Cards also got some offensive production from Jon McQuarrie (run) and Alex Stewart (1 for 3, run). On the mound, Pat Carroll pitched the first three innings to earn the win, and Ryan Decker worked the last four frames to pick up the save. The Cardinals’ road to the championship
began on Saturday, July 9, at Michele Park in Salem. The Cards knocked off the Nashua Mavericks 7-4 in the opening round that day after finishing the regular season by winning six of their last seven games. Salem then beat the Nashua Marauders 13-12 in walk-off fashion at Michele Park the following day. Trailing 12-9 in extra innings, Salem came up with four runs in the bottom of the eighth to advance to the winner’s bracket semifinals. On Tuesday, July 12, the Cardinals edged the Hollis-Brookline Dodgers 3-2 in the semifinal round to complete the winner’s bracket sweep. Contributing to the Cardinals’ offense in the semifinal were Reed (1 for 3, RBI, two runs), Swarbrick (1 for 2, RBI), McQuarrie (1 for 2, RBI), Stewart (1 for 2), Barbin (1 for 3), Billy Rayno (2 for 2), and Joe Lemenager (2 for 4, run). Meanwhile, Barbin tossed a complete game and struck out eight batters on the mound.

“This staff makes Mom number one.”
There is no other time in life when customer service becomes as important as the day you begin to face the changing needs of an aging parent or loved one. That’s how Richard Robidoux felt about looking for answers when his mother, Priscilla, needed him the most.
His parents were living in Florida when his father passed away. While Priscilla had friends to look in on her, Richard knew she needed extra help. And, her memory was changing.
“That’s when I had Mother move closer to us and into Windham Terrace,” Richard says. “Everything has been wonderful. Windham Terrace is beautiful. But by far, the staff makes all the difference.”
Richard is right. The staff at Windham Terrace, an exceptional assisted living community, takes customer service to the next level. They have an intimate interest in one thing: the well-being of all who live there.
If you are looking for answers to the changing needs of aging, call to learn more about assisted living, memory care, and short-term stays.
