Losing pitcher Marissa Mehlrose struck out nine and walked two in a five-hitter.
“Both pitchers pitched great tonight,” G-MU coach Tina Cole said. “Defensively, we were solid and so was Edmeston.”
The Panthers (16-1) will play the East Division champion — Milford or Richfield Springs — in the T-V crossover final Friday at Oneonta State.
The Raiders travel to Richfield Springs today.
Milford 6, Worcester 4
Five players had extra-base hits for host Milford, which overcame an early 3-0 deficit to clinch at least a tie for the Tri-Valley League East Division title.
Peggy Paffenroth’s two-run homer in the sixth tied the score at 4 for the Wildcats, who followed with a double from Natasha Skillen and an RBI triple from Serena Chase. Dawn Pickwick then drove in Chase with a groundout to cap the scoring.
“For the conditions, this was a well-played game,” Milford coach Jim Weir said. “Both pitchers battled the elements and did a nice job tonight.”
Kaitlin VanWinkler (11-1) struck out four in a six-hitter for the Wildcats, who also received triples from Addy Lawson and Maddy Zenir.
Losing pitcher Monica Ridgeway allowed no other hits. She and Madison Wright had two hits apiece for the Wolverines.
Milford (13-1, 11-1) visits Richfield Springs (9-4, 9-2) on Wednesday. The Indians, who are second in the T-V East, host Gilbertsville-Mount Upton today.
Should RS win both of its last two games, it will share the division title with Milford and force a tiebreaker for the right to represent the East in the T-V championship game against West Division winner Edmeston on Friday at Oneonta State.
Should RS lose either game, Milford will clinch the division title and advance to the crossover.
