Brattleboro 14's leading 14-10
WINOOSKI >> The Brattleboro Babe Ruth 14-year-old All-Star baseball team was ahead of Franklin County 14-10 when Friday's state tournament game was suspended due to darkness in the bottom of the sixth.
"We're hitting the ball well. We are swinging at strikes and putting the bat on the ball," said Brattleboro manager Sam Kilelee.
Timmy Velasquez, Chris Frost, Shane Cyr and Darwin Holcombe all have a couple of hits for Brattleboro. Andrew Peloso pitched the first four innings and Frost is now pitching in relief.
"Frost is pounding the strike zone. He is throwing very well right now and keeping them off balance with his curve," noted Kilelee.
The game will resume on Friday at 5 p.m.
BRATTLEBORO >> Tanner Bushee threw four perfect innings as Bennington blanked Brattleboro 14-0 in Game 1 of the 10-year-old District All-Stars on Saturday at the South Main Street field.
Will Hill put together two quality at-bats for the hosts and also made several nifty plays at the hot corner. Keagan Systo (LF) and Alex McClelland (C) were also defensive dandies for Brattleboro, which got a scoreless fourth frame from reliever Degan Gundry.
Nat Greenslet and Ayman Naser each finished with three hits to power the winners.
BRATTLEBORO >> Kassidi Ramirez fanned nine in a complete-game shutout as the Brattleboro Legion baseball team topped Lakes Region 8-0.

On Tuesday, Brattleboro will host Rutland at 5:30 p.m.
