Manchester - 10, Beverly - 2

Peter Clark allowed 2 runs (1 earned) over 5 innings for the win at Balch Park Tuesday night.  Beverly took an early 1 to 0 lead in the first inning but the fourth inning saw Manchester plate 6 runs on 5 hits, 3 walks, and 2 errors.  Beverly answered with 1 run in the bottom of the 5th to cut the lead to four, but Manchester struck right back for 4 runs in the 6th.

The Mariner offense was led by Crehan (2 for 3, 2RBI, 2R), Nesbit (2 for 3, RBI, 2R), and Cain (2 for 4, R).  Beverly's Paul Drinkwater was 2 for 4 with 2 doubles and scored both Giant runs.  Luke McDonald went 2 for 3.  Josh Levesque took the loss.

Manchester advances to the Finals with the victory.
