On an unseasonably warm late September afternoon, Newburyport defeated Lynn in Game 1 and 2 to advance to the Championship against Lowell. Hundreds of fans that were present for the Music Festival looked contributing to the playoff atmosphere.
Game 1 score was 20-4, Newburyport had the bats going early and often. It was truly a team effort with every player stealing at least one base and scoring or driving in at least one run.
Game 2 score was 10-2, Lynn and Newburyport both played outstanding defense to keep the score low until the later innings.
Huzzah to Lynn for a successful season.
The Championship Game will be played on Saturday, October 4th starting at 11AM.
