Diamonds in the Rough, Continued

An update on the achievements of Anthony D'Alfonso and the Westbrook 13-15 Babe Ruth team I wrote about this past weekend:

After dropping the first game in a best-of-three series against the Vermont Mountaineers, the top-seeded Sanford Mainers won game two yesterday in the continuation of a suspended game from Sunday. The decisive game three will be played tonight in Sanford's Goodall Park at 6:30p. D'Alfonso is hitting .286 with 1 double and 3 RBI in the two games.

Also playing tonight is the 13-15 Babe Ruth team, who are taking on Manchester, NH for the New England regional championship. Since Westbrook enters the game unbeaten, and Manchester has one loss, Westbrook must win only once to advance to the Babe Ruth World Series. Manchester, on the other hand, must defeat Westbrook twice to advance to the World Series.
