FAIRFIELD — Central Maine secured a berth in today’s championship game Saturday while Augusta wilted in the afternoon heat after playing back-to-back games at the State Babe Ruth tournament for 14-year-olds.
Central Maine remained the tournament’s only unbeaten team following Friday morning’s 7-4 win against Portland. Battling out of the loser’s bracket, Augusta eliminated Tri County South 5-2 before falling to Portland in the second half of a doubleheader 14-4 in five innings.
Today’s final pits Central Maine against Portland in a 1 p.m. championship game at Lawrence High School. Should Portland win, the teams will play again at approximately 4 p.m. The winner advances to the New England Regional in Westfield, Mass.
