Brewer outlasts Bronco-Hermon in extras of Senior League tourney

BANGOR - The Maine District No. 3 Senior League title is up for grabs, and while this year's win won't punch an automatic ticket to the World Series, every win gets a team closer to regionals.

Brewer managed to outlast Bronco-Hermon in 10 innings, wining 3-2 Thursday night. Bronco-Hermon now goes to the loser's bracket, where it will face Holbrook with the season on the line Saturday. ... ue-tourney

Boosted by rally, Ararat 10Us prepare for regional Cal Ripken tournament
Richmond-heavy team scored 11 runs in fifth inning to erase nine-run deficit in state title game.

His team was getting beaten — routed, in fact. But Ararat 10U Cal Ripken coach Chris Farrell saw a sign that indicated his team wasn’t finished just yet.

“They came in and I saw a little bit of a spark, so I gave them a little bit of a fifth inning pep talk,” he said. “All of a sudden, boom, they started hitting the ball like crazy.”

What Ararat did was rally from a nine-run deficit with an 11-run fifth inning, leading it to a 14-12 victory over Saco Valley, a state championship and a berth in the regional tournament in Marlboro, Massachusetts starting today. ... ournament/

Augusta reigns with three district champions and representatives in state Babe Ruth tournaments
13U, 14U and 15U teams won district titles, while Central Maine 13U competes for regional berth as well.

The Augusta 14U Babe Ruth team has been here before. Last year, in fact. And things couldn’t have gone better.

Augusta came out on top in the 13U state tournament last summer, taking first place en route to a berth in the New England regional championship. The players are now a year older, and coach Jason Douin likes their chances as they aim to be best in the state once again.

“We’re hungry,” he said. “We want to get back to that because we feel that we have a team that can compete for a regional title.” ... urnaments/
