Bay State Games communications coordinator Craig Kaufman sends along results from today's baseball and softball action:

BASEBALL
Three days of play at the 2012 Bay State Games baseball tournament are complete, and the Northeast team has emerged at the top of the standings after staging a late comeback to defeat West in the battle of the two undefeated teams. In the other games, Southeast got above .500 by beating Coastal 4-1 and Central picked up their first win with a 16-3 victory over Metro.

There are two more days of baseball competition, as the teams vie for the gold, silver and bronze medals at Bentley University.

Northeast 5, West 2
Northeast starter Mike Driscoll (N. Reading) pitched a 7-inning complete game with 11 strikeouts and Northeast overcame a 2-0 deficit in the top of the final frame to remain the only team undefeated in the 2012 Bay State Games baseball tournament at 3-0. Northeast was held scoreless until the seventh inning, but West made three errors in the frame and allowed Northeast to score five runs. Scott Betts (Peabody), Tyler Noe (Lynnfield), Keith Linnane (N. Reading), Connor Macrae (Newburyport) and Dmitri Hunt (Salisbury) all crossed the plate, with Hunt picking up a stolen base along the way.

West held the lead for much of the game after scoring two runs in the third inning. Nick Leduc (Belchertown) and Kevin White (Wilbraham) each drew walks and Kenny Potts (Southwick) and Dan McGuill (E. Longmeadow) followed with RBI singles.

West starter Liam Nolan (Pittsfield) went four innings, holding Northeast to four hits and striking out one batter.

Southeast 4, Coastal 1
Sean Scales (Weymouth) scored an unearned run in the first on an RBI single by Mark Saulnier (Norwood). Coastal equalized in the bottom of the inning through a Mike Bruemmel (Bridgewater) double and a Jimmy Gamache (Mattapoisett) RBI single to right field.

Scales drove in a run to give Southeast a 2-1 lead in the top of the fourth inning, though Coastal kept the deficit a single run when right fielder Ryan Kowalski (Taunton) made a great play to cut down Ben Smith (Bellingham) at home.

The game stayed a one-run affair until the seventh inning when Southeast tacked on two more runs thanks to consecutive RBI singles by Brian Biagini (E. Weymouth) and Smith.

Coastal starter Peter Poulin (Mattaposett) worked the first three innings of the game, allowing one unearned run and striking out two while issuing four walks.

Southeast got fine pitching outings from Zach Dunphy (Milton), Sean Roche (Rockland) and Connor Goetz (Cohasset), who combined to allow five hits and collected seven strikeouts as a trio.

Central 16, Metro 3
Central scored seven runs in the first and five runs in the fifth en route to their first win of the 2012 competition. Central rapped out five hits and took three walks in the first and sent, twelve men to the plate, capitalizing when Mitch Goldman (Uxbridge) and Micah Cummins (Auburn) each delivered two-run singles. They grabbed five more runs in the fifth on three hits, the biggest by Cam DiSarcina (Shirley).

Kyle Cutler (Clinton) was the fourth Central player with a two-run hit, delivering a single in a four-run seventh to extend Central’s lead.

Metro scored a run in the second when Tom Mcdonald (Quincy) walked and stole second, scoring on an RBI single by Sean Doyle (Everett). Metro tacked on two more unearned runs in the sixth, as Malcolm Nachmanoff (Boston) and Nathan Spielvogel (Brookline), who went 2-2 off the bench, crossed the plate.

Austin Cave (Southborough) went two innings of scoreless ball in relief for Central. Tom Jankins (W. Brookfield) got out of a jam in the bottom of the seventh to shut the door.

SOFTBALL

The Northeast Region captured the 2012 softball crown with a 5-2 victory over Coastal, running their record to a perfect 5-0 in the 2012 Bay State Games softball competition.

Northeast scored single runs in the third, fourth and fifth and two more in the sixth to run their record to 5-0 and capture the 2012 Bay State Games softball gold medal. Terri Ferranzani (N. Reading) hit a two-run homer and Danielle Moran (Lynn) was on base twice, scoring the first run of the game. Coastal did all their damage in the fifth inning, after a double by Julianna Ferguson (Sandwich) scored Alexis Charest (Chatham) and Margaret Johnson (S. Dennis), both of whom had drawn walks.

In the bronze medal game, Metro defeated West 5-2. West took a one-run lead in the first on a homer by Tasha Polana (Orange), but an error allowed Metro to take a 2-0 lead in the second inning. They grabbed the lead with two runs on three hits in the fifth.

The final game in the last day of the softball competition saw West and Central play to a 4-4 tie.
