14 SPORTS & RECREATION JULY 11-17, 2018 | VALLEY BREEZE | NORTH PROVIDENCE EDITION third, CWLL delivered four straight hits off Bautista to claim a 3-0 lead, with two of them, base hits to right by Alex Detomasis and Ron Cronin, driving in runs. CWLL's other run came in the fourth on a fielder's choice grounder by Detomasis. NPWLL had earned a spot in last Saturday's winners' bracket final by posting an 11-1 victory over Fox Point last Tuesday, July 3, at Romano Field. The game, which was halted after four innings by the mercy rule, saw Jordan Loiselle lead the way by picking up the win on the mound, striking out six batters in three innings of work, and also keying the offense with two hits, three runs scored, and two runs batted in. Also joining the multiple-hit club for NPWLL were Jacob Weidinger, whose two hits were doubles, Adrial Camejo, Bautista, and Coughlin. Camejo and Bautista also drove in two runs apiece. In Monday night's victory, NPWLL broke a 4-4 tie by scoring seven runs with two outs in the bottom of the third inning, with the big hit being a bases-clearing double by Bautista that he drilled down the right-field line. Loiselle went the first four innings on the mound to pick up the win, as he struck out six batters, and he helped his cause at the plate by driv- ing in two runs and scoring three times. Coughlin led the offense with three hits, one of them a double, and three RBIs, and collecting two hits each were Jalen Antoine, who also doubled and knocked in two runs, Weidinger, and Bautista. Two teams from the North Providence East Little League are also alive in the District I playoffs, the ages 10-11 and 8-10 all-stars, and the 10-11 ballclub stayed alive in its tournament on Monday night by downing NPWLL in their los- ers' bracket meeting at K of C Field, 22-9. NPWLL had faced NPELL in their tourney opener on Monday, July 2 and won a 9-7 thriller that took eight innings to complete, but last Thursday night, Johnston knocked NPWLL into the losers' bracket by posting a 3-1 victory. North Providence East will play Johnston in tonight's losers' bracket final. In the Major Division ages 8-10 tournament, North Providence East captured its first two games by edging Fox Point, 16-15, and cruising past Elmwood, 13-2, but in Sunday after- noon's winners' bracket final, NPELL suffered an 11-0 defeat to Cranston Western. North Providence East will be in action in Thursday night's los- ers' bracket final against a team to be announced.
