Waldo County Seniors, Bangor Juniors eliminated in Eastern Regionals


The Waldo County Senior League all-stars and the Bangor Junior League all-stars were eliminated in Eastern Regional baseball tourneys Sunday.

Host team West Deptford, N.J., rallied in the sixth inning to beat Waldo County 9-6 in the Senior League Eastern Regional while Burlington, Conn., ousted Bangor 15-2 in five innings in the Junior League Regional at Freehold, N.J.

Bangor suffered a 14-4 loss to Brandywine Little League of Wilmington, Del., on Saturday while Quincy, Mass., beat Waldo County 10-0.

In Sunday’s Junior League game, Jordan Derrarh cranked a two-run home run for Bangor in the fourth inning to lead the offense, but Burlington scored six runs in the fourth inning to put the game out of reach after scoring four runs in the second inning and five in the third.

John Stanhope, Justin Courtney and Brennan Lane each chipped in with a single for Bangor.

In Sunday’s Senior League game, Tom Jakubowski’s sixth-inning grand slam capped a five-run sixth inning that lifted West Deptford past Waldo County.

Nick Rodgerson paced Waldo with a triple and single while Cody Varney chipped in with two singles. Matt Palmer and Garth Clements each added a single and RBI while Pat Later tripled and Adrian Ellis singled.

Waldo scored its first run in the first inning when Rodgerson raced home from third on a throwing error. Rodgerson had singled, went to second on a fielder’s choice and stole third.

In the third Waldo added another run when Later smacked a lead-off triple and scored on Clements’ grounder to short.

Waldo struck for two runs in the fifth when Rodgerson laced a one-out triple and scored on Adam Higgins’ infield groundout. Palmer later chipped in with an RBI single, driving in Ellis, who had singled and advanced to second on a passed ball.

Waldo also added single runs in the sixth and seventh innings with Zack Beaudry scoring on an error in the sixth and Varney doing the same in the seventh.

In Saturday’s Junior League game, Wilmington scored six runs in the second inning to take a 7-0 lead en route to the victory over Bangor.

Brandywine scored another run in the top of the third, but Bangor answered back with a run in the bottom of the inning, and three more in the bottom of the fourth to cut the lead to 7-4.

But Brandywine countered Bangor’s attempt at a comeback with two runs in the fifth, and four more in the sixth to put the game out of reach.

In Saturday’s Senior League game, starting pitcher Dan Cobban and reliever Andrew Currie combined on a five inning two-hitter, striking out seven and walking only one to help Quincy shut out Waldo County.

Cobban struck out five and walked one in 3 1/3 innings of work, and Currie pitched the final 1 2/3 innings to record the win.

After stranding two on the basepaths against Waldo County starter Dillon Corliss in the first, Quincy answered back with a four-run second inning highlighted by a two-run single to left field off the bat of Pat Verhault, and a two-run double the next at-bat from Andrew Jaehnig.

Quincy went on to score three runs in each of the third and fourth innings. The third was highlighted by Tom Garland’s two-run double to right field, and Josh Hayward hit an RBI single to center to cap the fourth.

Rodgerson and Clements each singled for Waldo County.
