Manchester Babe Ruth 14's prevail again at regionals
The locals on Saturday used a complete-game effort from righthander Matt Reynolds to defeat Norwood, Mass., 4-3, in Westfield, Mass.
And he even benefited from an alert play by his manager, Mickey Hanagan.
Norwood trailed 4-0 early, but trimmed the deficit to 4-3 in the fourth. With a runner on third, a Norwood player hit a fly ball to the outfield. The runner seemingly tagged up and scored the tying run, but Hanagan noticed he left too early and appealed the play. The appeal proved successful, and Manchester retained its lead.
