Brewer,Bangor Prep For States
The Brewer Falcons are 2014 Zone 1 Legion baseball champions after beating Bangor 8-2 in the winner-take-all championship game Sunday afternoon. Both teams will play in the upcoming state tournament that begins Wednesday at the John Winkin Baseball Complex on the Husson University campus in Bangor.
The Falcons broke open a 2-2 in the 7th innings with five runs and then added another in the 8th.
Then the heavy rain started and after a delay officials decided to call the game final.
Bangor forced the if necessary game with a thrilling 2-1 win in the first game of the day. Leading 2-0 in the bottom of the 9th inning, Brewer rallied to score one run and the would-be tying run was cut down at the plate to end the game.
As the Zone 1 winner, Brewer meets the Eliot-Kittery team at 10am Wednesday.
As Zone 1 runner-up, Bangor meets South Portland at 6:30pm Wednesday.
The state tournament is an 8-team, double elimination event running Wednesday through Sunday.
