For the second time in less than a week, Wellesley South was a walk-off winner.
In the bottom if the seventh inning of the Massachusetts state champion's first game Saturday in the New England Regional Little League tournament, TJ Maley scored from third on a Michael Bomes ground ball to beat Scarborough, Maine, 5-4.
"These kids never give up," said assistant coach Matt Stein. "I can't say enough about their resiliency. "
Maley also scored the winning run in Wellesley South's state championship win in the bottom of the sixth inning earlier in the week over Acton-Boxborough.
Coach Dave Rosenblatt's team was down 4-0 going into the third inning before its bats woke up. Derrald Webb -- who sprained his ankle in practice on Friday -- got the scoring started with an RBI single with two outs. Then a two-run double by Bo Picking cut the Scarborough lead to 4-3.
Bomes hit an RBI single in the fifth to tie the score at 4-4 and set up another late-game dramatic finish.
Billy Seidl entered to pitch with one out in the third inning and promptly shut down the Maine state champions. He allowed five hits, no runs, no walks and struck out six.
"They couldn't touch him," Rosenblatt said.
Wellesley South will play Sunday at 5 p.m. against South Burlington, Vermont.
