Senior right-hander Liam Lafferty pitched five innings of two-hit shutout relief for the win, and Trevor Brown went 1 for 4 and scored for the visiting Spartans (5-3, 2-2 Wachusett C). Senior Josh Bahnick was the tough-luck loser for the Gaels (2-9, 0-5), striking out seven and giving up just two singles with all three runs unearned. He was also 2 for 3 at the plate with three stolen bases and a run scored. Clinton failed to score on a bases-loaded, one-out situation in the sixth, and after a leadoff triple in the seventh by Owen Gannon, who was cut down at the plate on his team's second failed suicide squeeze of the game.
