The beat goes on for the Somerville Alibrandis baseball team, which seems to be playing to the tune of Ain’t No Stoppin’ Us Now.

With two more wins, Alibrandis improved to 13-1 in the Yawkey League last week.

First, Alibrandis defeated the Brighton Braves, 9-0, at Rogers Park in Brighton.

“Once again the bats we’re going for us,” Alibrandis assistant coach Cam Lynch said. “If the weather stays in our favor and we play consistent baseball, we will be a tough team to beat.”

Jon Morse was again terrific on the hill, tossing five scoreless innings, while allowing only one hit and improving his season ledger to 4-1.

Lamarre Rey pitched the sixth inning and recovered nicely after walking the first batter to strike out the next three hitters.

Brian Tanguy threw a scoreless seventh inning. He got into a bit of a jam with three walks, but struck out two to finish it.

Offensively, Alibrandis put on a big show. Mike Maguire went 2-for-4 with two RBIs, including a double to right center. He also had a stolen base.

Justin Crisafulli had two hits in three tries, including a pair of doubles and two RBIs.

Teddy Dziuba, Marc DesRochers, Mark Adessa, and Logan Gillis also each drove in a run.

The Braves, of the Johnny Pesky Division, fell to 6-6.

Alibrandis followed up that win with a solid 2-1 victory over the visiting South Boston Saints at Trum Field.

Chris Foundas tossed five strong innings to chalk up the win. Rey pitched a scoreless sixth, and Tanguy sealed his seventh save, breaking an Alibrandis single season record in that category.

Offensively, Alibrandis completed a two-run first inning when Gillis scored on a passed ball with runners at first and third.

The Saints, of the Carl Yastrzemski Division, dropped to 5-4.

This week, Alibrandis was scheduled to host the McCay Club Beacons at Trum Field on Monday, and visit the 12-2 Revere Rockies on Tuesday.
