Worcester Academy 4, Deerfield 3

Saturday, May. 3, 2014, at Deerfield

Dante Ricciardi scored the winning run on a sacrifice fly by John Friday with one out in the seventh as the visiting Hilltoppers (14-5, 6-2 CNEPBL) edged the Big Green (4-7, 3-6) in Deerfield. Ricciardi, who was 3 for 4, also scored in the third inning on a double by Austin Young (3 for 3, run). Ricciardi raced home on Friday's pop out to shallow right that was caught by the Deerfield second baseman, with Ricciardi sliding home just ahead of the tag from catcher Zack Twitchell. Worcester Academy starter Kevin Haley pitched 6-2/3 innings, scattering nine hits before Eric Sachse retired the final batter on one pitch to record the save.
