WINTHROP — The Winthrop Ramblers allowed seven runs in the top of the seventh inning, then rallied with four in the bottom of the inning to earn a wild 8-7 win over Sacopee Valley in a Western C quarterfinal baseball game Thursday.

With two on and two out, Drew Stratton hit a dribbler down the first base line and collided with Sacopee Valley pitcher Anthony Haskell, who was trying to field the ball. Stratton got up and reached first safely and both pinch runner Cabot Lancaster and Zach Steele were able to score giving Winthrop the win.

Mario Meucci started the inning with a one-out single, then with two outs, Matt Sekerak singled and both Ben Caprara and Steele walked to force in a run. Sekerak scored on a passed ball to bring the Ramblers within two.

No. 3 Winthrop improves to 13-3 and advances to play No. 2 St. Dominic at 2 p.m. Saturday. No. 6 Sacopee Valley ends the season 9-9.

Sekerak had a shutout going into the seventh inning for Winthrop before Sacopee Valley put seven runs on the board. Kyle Jordan had a two-run double as part of the rally.
