GLOCESTER -- Glocester Little League captured the District IV championship with an 11-7 victory over Burrillville in a game that was suspended due to darkness after Glocester rallied to tie the contest in the bottom of the sixth inning.
When the game resumed last Tuesday, Glocester pulled away to its victory. Jimmy Greene got the hit that put Glocester ahead for good. Matt Taillon added a two-run single that drove in Greene and Drew Angell.
Relief pitcher Derek Faria pitched out of a jam in the seventh inning. Danny Keefe and Mike Wilkenson also pitched well in relief for the champions.
Burrillville held a 7-1 lead before Glocester rallied with six runs in the sixth inning. The game was suspended at that point with two runners on base. When it resumed, Jimmy Greene’s line drive single to center plated Zach St. Godard with the go-ahead run.
Glocester had posted a 7-0 victory over North Smithfield and a 6-4 win over Burrillville to advance to the championship game.
Glocester will face Barrington at noon on Saturday at Johnston Memorial Park in the first round of the state tournament.
