QUINCY, Mass. -- For the second game in a row, a late Post 68 rally fell short, and the team bowed out of the double-elmination American Legion state tournament with a 5-3 loss to Shrewsbury on Monday afternoon.
Shrewsbury led, 5-1, after five innings, but Post 68 rallied with two out for a pair of runs in the top of the seventh before succumbing.
Shrewsbury drew first blood with a run in the bottom of the first.
Post 68 tied it two innings later thanks to singles by Ian Benoit, Jack Cooney and Hunter Potash to load the bases and a fielder's choice off the bat of Joe Cracolici to score Benoit.
Shrewsbury regained the lead with three in the fourth inning and tacked on a run in the fifth.
In the seventh, J.P. Levesque hit a two-out single to extend the game. Cooney then followed with a double to drive in Levesque.
Potash reached on an error that allowed Cooney to score, but Shrewsbury was able to limit the damage and stay alive in the elminination bracket.
