Norwich 8, Oxford 7
NORWICH – Norwich’s Colby Griffin hit a walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh Monday night to send Norwich into the finals of the Otsenango Pony League.
Norwich loaded the bases when Justin Lindenthaler was hit by a pitch, Chris Trevisani reached on an infield single, and Brendan McInerney was intentionally walked. Griffin, who had an RBI single in his previous at-bat, lined the pitch from Andrew Golden to right field spoiling Oxford’s comeback bid.
Oxford rallied from a five-run deficit after five innings scoring three runs in the sixth and seventh to extend the game. Jody Smith had a two-run double in the sixth and a two-run single in the seventh. Andrew Golden added an RBI single, and Richard Ryan’s run-scoring single in the seventh plated Smith with the tying run.
