Chariho victory prevents Westerly from winning league title outright

WESTERLY — Dylan LaBelle pitched a five-hitter to lift the Chariho Middle School baseball team to a key 3-2 Southern Division victory over Westerly at Cimalore Field Tuesday night.

While Westerly (12-4, 10-3 Southern Division) was denied a chance to clinch the outright league title, the Bulldogs remain in first place, one game ahead of 9-4 Davisville with one to go. Davisville lost to Wickford 3-0 Tuesday.

Westerly hosts Davisville 3:30 p.m. Thursday in the final regular season game for both teams.

Chariho (7-4, 7-4 Southern Division) kept its title hopes alive with the one-run win.

Chariho took a 3-0 lead before Westerly scored two runs in the fourth inning. The Bulldogs threatened to tie in the seventh when Matt Brissette walked and Tom Algier doubled to put runners on second and third. But the Bulldogs could not score and force extra innings.

Taber Gates scattered nine hits while going the distance for Westerly.




NARRAGANSETT — With an undefeated record on the line, Chariho ended the suspense early with five runs in the first inning and five more in the fourth to register a mercy-rule win over Narragansett Pier Tuesday.

The Chargers finished the regular season with 13-0 overall record and 12-0 in the Southern Division.

Justine Rios and Makayla Caparco produced three hits each, and Jordan Parenti and Kristen Morgan had two hits apiece.

Sarah Dias was the winning pitcher, striking out seven in three innings.

Chariho awaits the RIIL middle school playoffs, which are slated to begin the week of June 2.
