This week the New Haven Register had Cheshire up top, The Hartford Courant had Hand at numero uno, but the Tigers lost Tuesday at North Haven.

Top of the 7th, it’s 2-1 Cheshire. Rob Roles sends that ball into the trees for the home run…Cheshire brings in 3 home runs, which brings it up to 5-1.
Hand does not quit! Bottom of the 7th and bases loaded. Hand cuts it to 5-3.
Julian Benerji hits the shot up the middle.
One run scores 5-4, then another run ties it, but Matt Downing is there for the final out, Cheshire survives against Hand…Final score 5-4.
