Post 68 Punches Ticket to Massachusetts American Legion State Title Game

HAVERHILL — After a series of dramatic extra-inning wins in the American Legion state tournament, Pittsfield Post 68 earned a slightly more comfortable 6-0 victory in the semifinals over Northbridge.

“This was definitely nice. The last couple of games have been really tough, coming down to the last innings,” said catcher Dom Traversa. “This one was nice to be able to relax a bit in the last couple innings, knowing we were ahead by a good bunch of runs.”

Lenox Tops Drury on Downer Walk-Off

LENOX — Playing with no head coach in a game that featured more than enough chirping between the dugouts and a couple different umpire warnings, the Lenox Baseball team had to rely on their own grit and determination.

The Millionaires trailed twice in the late innings and both times reached back and came up with an answer. The second response was a resounding one, as senior Mike Downer went the other way with a walk-off RBI double to right filed in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Lenox topped Drury 6-5 in a doozy of an extra-inning affair Friday afternoon at War Memorial.
