Newbury Park (4-0) has so much quality pitching that coach Curtis Scott will never have to worry about going into extra innings, such as Saturday’s Easton tournament semifinal game against Hart. It took 10 innings before the Panthers pulled out a 5-4 victory.
Cade Falconen’s sacrifice fly drove in the tiebreaking run. Quinn Haggarty had three hits and two RBIs. Left-hander Evan Needham (2-0), the fourth Newbury Park pitcher, picked up the win. Hart (3-1) had the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth with one out but scored only one run to tie the score. Newbury Park will play Sierra Canyon in Tuesday’s 7 pm championship game at Birmingham.
