SOUTH KINGSTOWN — Westerly took a giant step toward the Southern Division title with a down-to-the-wire win on Thursday.

Ben Tripp led off the Westerly seventh with a single and one out later Jacob Gilman walked. After James Pedersen sacrificed the runners to second and third, Austin Frink hit a game-tying, RBI single and Brendan Clays drove in singled home two more.

Tom Algier pitched the seven-inning distance for the win.

He allowed five hits and three runs (two earned) while striking out two. He also hit a double.

Algier got the final out when he knocked down a hard ground ball and threw to first base.

The tying run was on third and the winning run was on second when the final out was made.

Clays finished 2 for 3, both of his hits being singles. Westerly finished with six hits.
