In Morell on Friday night, the Morell Chevies took a pair of games against the Cardigan Clippers, taking the first game 6-5 win in 10 innings.
That completed a game that had been called earlier in the season after eight innings due to darkness.
In the nightcap, the Chevies broke out to a 6-0 lead and survived a four-run sixth inning by Cardigan to win 6-4.
In the first game, a Desi Doyle single off Clipper pitcher Charles MacLellan in the top of the 10 inning scored Logan Gallant with the winning run.
Gallant, who had relieved starter Brett Hicken, picked up the win. Cole MacLaren had four hits to pace the Chevies while Ben Doucette had three hits for the Clippers.
In the second game, Taylor Larkin went the distance for the win, striking out eight, while MacLellan took the loss, with relief from Colin MacInytre and Dean Carroll.
For the Chevies, Logan Gallant, Stephen O’Shea and Troy Coffin picked up two hits apiece while Morgan MacAree, Carroll and Jed Walsh had RBI singles in the Clipper four run sixth inning.
Dan O’Shea, pitcher for the Stratford Athletics in the Kings County Baseball League, shows some fine form during a game Sunday against the Morell Northside Brewers.
