"I knew [Westport/Keene] was not just going to lay down," said Lee. "I was hoping we could hold them to one or maybe two runs."
But the Beagles played with nothing to lose in their last regular season game. Kevin Russell lined a double into right feild, bringing Whitney home. Sam Earl and Dylan Boyle each singled and Bell hit a two-run double that put the tying run in scoring position.
Jesse Stevens launched a double deep into center field to tie. Andrews then drove him in with a nice line drive into the gap to end it.
"I'm so glad it was him. He's a kid I've had for three years and he really hasn't had a lot of reward," said Markwica. "I'm really proud of him for having a great at-bat."
