Oh what a relief for Stamford

(Continued)

Downsville reliever Brad Dreher then hit Greg Mattice with a pitch to load the bases. Ehrhart’s sacrifice fly to center broke the tie, and Greg Keating later hit a two-run single to cap the scoring.

Tompkins walked four times and scored three runs.

“He did what a good leadoff hitter does,” Faulkner said. “He got on base and the middle of our order did its job and drove him in.”

Third baseman Mattice did quite a bit of the driving.

Mattice finished 4-for-4 with a triple and four RBIs. He also scored two runs and was hit by a pitch.

Keating contributed two hits, two RBIs and a run.

“Our two, three and four hitters have been doing this all year. It’s not just one guy.” Faulkner said.

Anderson, Mattice and Ehrhart combined to drive in six of the team’s nine RBIs and scored a total of five runs.

Bonadies paced the Eagles with a 2-for-3 performance that included a double, a triple, an RBI and three runs. Fogarty (two doubles), Baxter and Fisk also had two hits apiece.

Both teams play Tuesday in the opening round of the Section Four Class D Tournament. Downsville drew the No. 9 seed and will play at eighth-seeded Windham. Fourth-seeded Stamford, which is riding an eight-game winning streak and is undefeated at home, hosts 12th-seeded Davenport.
