2013 Regional - Game 16

WEST DEPTFORD, NJ -- Kevin LaPlante went 2-for-4 at the plate and hurled 6-1/3 innings on the hill as Naamans Little League of Wilmington, DE eliminated Johnston, RI, 8-4, Tuesday afternoon at the Senior League Baseball East Regional. 

LaPlante allowed six hits and walked three while striking out six to put Naamans into another elimination game Tuesday night against Quincy, MA. The winner of that game will play in Wednesday's championship round against KAU Little League from Kennett Square, PA.  

Naamans broke a 1-1 tie with a three-spot in the fourth. Brannon McHugh and Carl Ramsey both had RBI singles in the inning. 

Johnston responded for two runs in the fourth on a two-run double by John Willette. Willette went 2-for-4 in the game. 

With LaPlante struggling Naamans turned to Graham Haines, who coaxed the final out with one pitch. LaPlante later returned to the mound to record three more outs before hitting the pitch count maximum of 95. Richie Windon recorded the final out.
