Little League: Concord eliminated

Concord’s stay in the Little League New England Regional ended Wednesday when Middleboroough, Mass., earned an 11-0 five-inning victory that eliminated the New Hampshire All-Stars.

Gavin Gillpatrick limited Concord to two hits, walked one and struck out 10. He also went 4-for-4 with four RBIs and two runs scored.  The 10-run mercy rule came into play following Gillpatrick’s two-out, two-run home run to center field in the bottom of the fifth inning.

Middleborough, which handed Concord (1-2) both of its losses in the regional, will play Bangor East (Maine) in the final Thursday at 5 p.m. on ESPN. The winner will advance to the Little League World Series in Williamsport, Pa.

Middleborough scored a run in the first, four runs in the second and three in the fourth to build an 8-0 lead.
