Mike Iacovelli hit a two-run single and worked his way out of trouble throughout to lift the host Beavers (14-4, 11-4 Colonial Athletic) past the visiting Eagles (14-6, 9-3). The win puts Valley Tech in front for a selection to the state vocational tournament, but the two teams meet in a rematch Wednesday at Worcester Tech. Iacovelli bested Tanner Roy, who struck out nine for Worcester Tech. Valley Tech scored all three runs in the fourth, with Anthony Beschi's double driving in the other run. Colin Fitzgerald hit an RBI single for the Eagles in the sixth. Iacovelli was helped by his fielding as he got five assists on comebackers to the mound and, with runners on second and third and none out in the second, he grabbed a line drive and threw to third for a double play.
