Pelham Pythons Baseball '18

Pythons push champs to limit

Pelham was three times just one strike away from pulling the huge upset over No. 1 ranked Portsmouth (16-1). But the defending Division 2 champs got a game-tying two-run single in the bottom of the seventh, then walked-off a 7-6 quarterfinals win when the next batter beat out an infield single. It was still a fantastic effort by the ninth-seeded Pythons (9-9), who got a 2 for 3 from Diggy Lawson and a 2 for 4 day from Matt Poff.
