Northeast Delta Dental Stadium

Division III
No. 1 Monadnock 11, No. 3 Inter-Lakes 2

Monadnock scored in five of its six at-bats and repeated as the Division III champion.

Monadnock (20-0) scored three runs in the first, one in the second, one in the third, five in the fourth and one in the fifth. First baseman Cam Olivo had three extra-base hits in the victory, including a solo home run in the fifth. Oliivo tripled in the first, doubled in the third and finished the game with three RBIs.

Kevin Putnam and Ben Dean each added two hits for the Huskies.

Putnam allowed four hits and both Inter-Lakes runs were unearned. He struck out six.

Leadoff hitter Alex Potter had two hits and scored a run for the Lakers (16-3), who were playing in the Division III championship game for the first time.

Monadnock is the only undefeated NHIAA baseball team in the state.

Division IV
No. 4 Newmarket vs. No. 3 Sunapee, 1 p.m.

Sunapee starting pitcher Finn Flint tossed a complete game, limited Newmarket to one hit and struck out seven to help third-seeded Sunapee beat Newmarket 10-0.

Meanwhile, Newmarket used three pitchers who issued nine walks and hit three batters. Five players who reached via a walk ended up scoring, as did two of the hit batsmen. The game ended in the sixth when an Eric Nangeroni single scored Hunter Morse, which triggered the 10-run rule.

Shortstop Sam Flint and center fielder Andrew Claus each had three RBIs for Sunapee (17-4). Nick Nigro collected the only hit for Newmarket (14-6).

Sunapee’s title is its first since it beat Gorham, 6-5, in the 2014 Division IV championship game.

Division I
No. 4 Londonderry vs. No. 2 Pinkerton, 4 p.m.

Senior Liam Doyle limited Londonderry to two hits and struck out 15 to lead the Astros to a 2-0 victory in the Division I title game. 

Doyle, who will join the Nashua Silver Knights next week, finished the season with a 7-2 record and struck out 125 batters in 61.2 innings.

Shortstop Brandon Horne and designated hitter Tom Rioux drove in Pinkerton’s runs. Rioux had a two-out double that scored Jackson Marshall with the game’s first run in the second inning, and Brandon Horne’s two-out single scored Lorenzo Corsetto in the fifth.

The second-seeded Astros (21-3) won the Division I title for the first time since 1986, when they topped Keene, 3-2, in the final.

Pinkerton had four hits in the game, all of which came against Londonderry starter Kevin Rourke. Michael Crowley came on in relief of Rourke with one out in the sixth. Catcher Cole Yennaco and Corsetto had the other Pinkerton hits.

Fourth-seeded Londonderry, which lost its first three games, completed its season with a 17-7 record.

Right fielder Adam Wholley and Johan Pena had Londonderry’s hits, both of which were singles. Those were Londonderry’s only baserunners.

Division II
No. 2 St. Thomas vs. No. 1 Hollis-Brookline, 7 p.m.

Padge MacSeain, a senior, pitched a complete game, singled and scored a run to help top-seeded Hollis-Brookline defeat second-seeded St. Thomas 7-2 in the fourth of Saturday’s four championship matchups.

MacSeain allowed three hits and both St. Thomas runs were unearned. He struck out 10. MacSeain will play American Legion Baseball for Nashua this summer and will suit up for St. Joseph’s College of Maine next season.

It was a 1-1 game after two innings, but the Cavaliers scored three runs in the third and three more in the fourth.

Hollis-Brookline completed its season with an 18-1 record. Sam Grondin and Mike Skowron scored for second-seeded St. Thomas, which finished 17-5. Grondin also struck out five in three innings in relief of starter Connor Toriello.

Right fielder Torin White collected two hits and scored twice for Hollis-Brookline. Shortstop Charlie Hale had two hits, drove in three and scored once, and catcher Alex Razzaboni had two hits and two RBIs.
