BANGOR, Maine — Brewer’s Jeff Weeks pitched a complete game two-hitter to give the Falcons the third seed in the upcoming American Legion Zone 1 baseball tourney with a 2-0 victory over Motor City Thursday night at Husson University’s Winkin Complex.

Motor City ends its regular season with a 12-9 record and will play Penquis at 7 p.m. Sunday at Winkin in the Nos. 4-5 play-in game, which determines the final seed in the double-elimination Zone 1 tourney that follows the next day.

Weeks struck out seven and walked just one batter and was aided by an errorless Falcons defense.

Brewer got on the board when Ben Pushard reached third base on an error on a ball hit to center to begin the third inning. Pushard scored with one out on a wild pitch.

The Falcons extended their lead with a leadoff walk in the fifth to Carter DeRedin, who was sacrificed to second by Pushard and scored on Chase Allen’s single.
