Jesse Nemerowicz singled in Steve Rivela with a line drive to center two outs in the fourth inning, while Pat Cadden tossed a four-hitter, struck out two and walked none as the No. 7 Hawks (14-8) nipped the host No. 2 Beavers (15-6). Hudson will face No. 3 Worcester Tech at 4 p.m. Wednesday at Clark University in a semifinal. Valley Tech starter Austin LaBastie struck out eight and walked two while tossing a four-hitter. The Beavers threatened in the sixth and put runners at the corners with two outs, but Jared Vadenais's line-drive to left field was snared by a diving Kenny Manero to end the inning.
