With Peter now at 3rd and one out, Pablo Begle’s sacrifice fly scored Rosbeck. Mac Cummings hit a shot to left field that the LF made a great catch on for the 3rd out to keep it tied. With Fuller still pitching, the other side got out in order in the top of the 7th. MV's Tyler Alton then led off with a walk, River Loughman doubled, with two outs and Aiden Galligan at the plate, and Tyler was able to score on a wild pitch to seal the victory.

Field Day a success- Thank you to our community

Each division was designated a field to weed, edge, spread bluestone, fix bases, tamp, level and more! Coaches & volunteers, sponsors & community members, families & players, came out in numbers to brave the intermittent showers and a wintry mix of cold precipitation this weekend. Many brought trucks and machines, rakes, shovels, levels and other tools. Lots of hands made for light work!

A heartfelt thank you to all from Martha's Vineyard Little League.

Let's play ball!
