Lincoln now one win away from LLWS

August 8, 2013

BRISTOL, Conn. – It had been billed as a sensational pitcher’s duel – South Burlington, Vt. fireballer Ben Tate against Lincoln’s crafty southpaw Kyle Marrapese.

The pair didn’t disappoint, as they combined to whiff – get this – 19 foes.

In the end, however, Marrapese captured the battle, and it happened due to one precious, hellacious swing from teammate Steve Andrews.

Navigant Post 85 falls in Northeast regional opener

August 8, 2013

MIDDLETOWN, Conn. — Navigant Post 85 produced several opportunities to capture its U.S. American Legion Northeast Regional Tournament opener at Palmer Field on Thursday morning.

It failed on most, and that’s why the Rhode Island champions suffered a lopsided 9-2 defeat to Barnstable, Mass.

For those who reigned from the Bay State, George Bent hurled a complete-game nine-hitter while his offense “nickel-and-dimed” their way to eight runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth frames.
Righty starter Kory “Skip” Lawrence took the loss after yielding six hits in four-plus innings.
