Coffee News Bangor pitching continues to dominate at the Maine State American Legion Baseball Tournament. Friday night's 2-0 shutout over South Portland makes it three consecutive shutouts in the tourney.

This time it was righthander Ethan Stoddard. Eight innings of seven hit, four walk pitching. Stoddard struck out five.

Zach Cowperthwwaite came on to pitch the 9th to get the save after Stoddard had reached his pitch limit.

The 3-0 Comrades have yet to give up a run in 27 innings in the states.

The only runs Bangor needed came in the 5th and 9th innings. Stoddard had a RBI single in the 5th inning and Jesse Colford had a RBI sacrifice fly.

The victory guarantees Coffee News a spot in the championship round on Sunday. The only issue to be decided in Saturday's play, will there be two teams or three teams alive on Sunday.

The Comrades play the 4pm game Saturday afternoon vs Coastal Landscaping (Cheverus).
