Simmons sparks Worcester Peat

BREWER – Keith Simmons’ RBI single in the 10th lifted Worcester Peat to a 3-2 baseball victory over Yankee Ford Friday night at Heddericg Field in Portland Twilight League action.

Worcester Peat loaded the bases in the 10th on two errors and a Tony Fernandez single, and it looked like Yankee Ford may escape when it turned a double play, but Simmons came up next to deliver the winning hit.

Fernandez added a double for Worcester Peat and tripled in two runs in the eighth to tie it. Darren Stover pitched two scoreless innings to notch the win. Rob Worcester had a solid outing in eight innings while scattering six hits and striking out eight.

Nick DePaolo singled twice for Yankee Ford and Matt Harbour had a sacrifice fly.

Yankee Ford (8-5) 010 001 000 0 – 2 6 4 Worcester Peat (5-4) 000 000 020 1 – 3 7 1

Harbour, Dostie (8) and Peck; R. Worcester, Stover (9) and M. Worcester
