26 SPORTS & RECREATION JULY 11-17, 2019 | VALLEY BREEZE | CUMBERLAND LINCOLN EDITION CUMBERLAND – The Cumberland Youth Baseball/Softball League will be represented once again in the R.I. District IV Major Division (ages 11-12) championship game on Saturday night at Hien Field. The question is, which team will play in that contest, Cumberland American or Cumberland National? The answer will come today at 5:30 p.m. at Garvin Field, as both teams will face each other in the losers' bracket final of the double-elimination tournament for the right to take on Burrillville for all the marbles (at a time to be announced) this weekend. Cumberland National, which had won its first tourney games with ease, defeating Smithfield, 10-1, and Lincoln, 9-0, suffered a 6-4 loss to Burrillville on Tuesday night at Garvin Field. All six of Burrillville's runs came in the second inning, with the final three scoring on a three-run homer by Jack Dichiaro. Cumberland National received a run-scoring double from Patrick Leonard and RBI single from Matt Maher later in the game, but couldn't complete its comeback. Burrillville's victory means the team needs only one more win to clinch its first district title since 2012. But if Burrillville loses on Saturday night, it will get another shot to claim the championship in a winner-take-all game on Sunday back in Lincoln. As for Cumberland American, the team suffered a 4-2 loss to Burrillville in its tourney opener, but came back to defeat Smithfield on Sunday and Lincoln two nights later in the losers' bracket. As for the other two Major Division double-elimination tournaments, two losers' bracket finals of local importance took place on Wednesday night. Lincoln's all-star teams faced Smithfield in the ages 10-11 game at Whipple Field and Woonsocket in the 8-10 contest at Hien Field. Awaiting the winners of those games will be Smithfield in the 8-10 game and Woonsocket in the 10-11 contest, which will both take place on Saturday (at times to be announced) at Hien Field. Like the 11-12 tourney, if a winner-take-all game is needed, it will be held on Tuesday. The Lincoln 10-11 all-stars, which have won the last two district titles, dropped its tournament opener to Smithfield, 9-1, but came back to rout Burrillville, 17-2, in its losers' bracket game on Monday night. As for the Lincoln 8-10 all-stars, they were dealt a 1-0 loss in their tour- ney opener to Smithfield, which saw three pitchers combine on a no-hitter. The players on the Cumberland American baseball team get ready to congratulate JOSHUA LYON, right, after he hit a two-run homer in the top of the first inning of Sunday night's losers' bracket game against Smithfield at Whipple Field. Cumberland American rolled to a 10-2 win and will play Cumberland National in tonight's losers' bracket final at Garvin Field.
