WEST WARWICK -- As a light drizzle started to find its way to McCarthy Field, the tides of the American Legion â€˜Final Eightâ€™ winnersâ€™ bracket final changed on one pitch.
With Upper Deck Post 86/14 holding a 3-1 lead in the top of the sixth inning, Navigant Credit Unionâ€™s E.J. Torres stepped in the box with the bases loaded and two outs. Facing a full count, Torres blasted an opposite-field double to left field.
That hit emptied the bases and gave Navigant a 4-3 lead, one that Post 85 would improve all the way to a 12-3 final.
