Post 59’s Season Comes to an End at Northbridge
In a loss that has to rank up there as one of the most painful of season, ended the season for Milford Legion today at Northbridge middle school by a final of 1-0. In a game that spanned two days ended in heart break for the Post 59 faithful and players as Andrew McMillan grounded into a 6-4-3 twin killing to send Northbridge to the Zone 4 playoff finals tomorrow. Milford had the bases juiced off of reliever Dylan Jepsen with just one out when McMillan grounded to short to start a potential game ending double play. For a moment it appeared that the relay throw from second basemen Justin Stone might sail high but all hope was dashed when Teddy Carey jump stretched for the ball and came back down on the first base bag before McMillan could reach it. Milford ends their season at 15-12 overall and their hopes of defending their 2014 State Championship. Kyle Nocera pitched fantastic for Milford in defeat in striking out nine Northbridge players in six innings of work. Northbridge managed just two base hits off of Nocera but still won the game. Both of their hits came in the 6th inning when Isaiah Alvarado singled to start the inning and then was moved over on a sacrifice bunt by Tyler Galimi. Then with two outs Matt Nichols singled Alvarado home for what would be the game winning run. 21-5 Northbridge now hosts Grafton Hill tomorrow at 5:30 in a best of 3 series for the Zone 4 title. Coach Steve DiVitto and Milford now turn their attention to the off season with a young team that showed solid development during this season.
