Rochester Beats Exeter in Epic Pittsfield Invitational
It took three grueling games over two days to determine the Champion of the Pittsfield Invitational and at the end of all, Rochester's Roger Allen took the trophy home!
Saturday, June 23rd - Game One - Rochester 6 - Exeter 4
Sunday, June 24th - Game Two - Exeter 14 - Rochester 8
Sunday, June 24th - Game Three - Rochester 10 - Exeter 9
You just can't get much more evenly matched than that.
These were excellent baseball games to watch and you'd never expect that the kids were all 8 years old and under. Great defense, pitching and hitting from both teams all weekend long.
It was especially satisfying to defeat Exeter because they had eliminated Rochester on their home turf at The Kittredge Tournament just last weekend.
Here are my nephews, Connor, (left of photo, Pitcher of crucial shutout inning in Game 3) and Caleb (right of photo, Centerfield, hitter of crucial RBI double in Game 3) as they celebrate the victory in Gonic last evening. Way to go!
