BOX SCORE

 

WEST DEPTFORD, N.J. – Auburn, MA earned a place in Wednesday’s championship round with a 4-3 victory over Upper Moreland, PA in Tuesday morning action at the Senior League Baseball Eastern Regional.

 

The first winner’s bracket final to need extra frames in 22 years of regional play at West Deptford was decided in the top of the ninth on a throwing error. With a runner on second and two outs, Ryan Canselico hit a bouncer to third.. The throw skipped past the first baseman and into the dugout, allowing Lincoln Bais to score what would be the winning run.

 

Auburn took a 3-0 lead in the fourth inning on a throwing error, a successful double steal of home, and an RBI single by Ryan Kozlowski.

 

Upper Moreland got on the board in the fourth when Charlie Hooker led off the inning with a homer to left. The Pennsylvania state champs tied the game in the fifth. With runners at second and third, a wild pitch scored the first run, but the relay from the catcher got away, allowing Eddie Decker to score all the way from second base and tie the game.

 

Tyler Destardin earned the win in relief for Auburn, shutting down the rally in the Upper Moreland rally in the sixth and hurling 3-1/3 innings of no-hit relief.

 

Upper Moreland will play again on Tuesday, facing the winner of the Naamans, DE-West Deptford, NJ-15 game at 7:30 pm.
