PAWTUCKET EDITION | VALLEY BREEZE | AUGUST 7-13, 2019 SPORTS & RECREATION 11 PAWTUCKET – A day after staging the most electrifying finish to a game at last week's American Legion "Final Four" playoffs, the Collette Post 10 baseball team saw its quest for a state title come up short last Wednesday night in its 6-4 loss to Upper Deck Post 14 in their losers' bracket final at McCarthy Field. Owners of a 2-1 lead after 4½ innings of play, Collette gave up a run to Upper Deck in the bottom of the fifth inning, and Post 14 took the lead in the sixth by scoring four times with two outs. Collette, which was held to one hit by Upper Deck starting pitcher Kyle DaLuca and Corey Mayer, plated its two runs in the top of the fourth on a two-run single to left field by Braydon Dolbashian. Speaking of Dolbashian, he was the hero of the previous day's victory, a 6-4 win over Navigant Post 85 that saw Collette walk off with the thrilling win on a two-run homer to right by Dolbashian, which came after Cam Wilson led off the bottom of the sev- enth with a long double to left. Collette held a 3-0 lead after three innings of play, but Navigant slowly battled back and eventually tied the score at 4-4 with two runs in the top of the seventh. Post 10 only collected five hits in the game, with two of them coming from Julian Reis. Rob Whalen had the other hit and drove in a run with a grounder in the fifth to give Collette a 4-1 lead. Collette, which fell into the losers' bracket after suffering a 13-4 defeat to Gershkoff/Auburn Post 20 in its "Final Four" opener last Monday, July 29, wraps up its Senior Division season with a 17-9 record. Post 10 had earned the second seed in the playoffs by posting a 14-6 mark during the regular season.
