Summary:

Westfield South's big-inning attacks proved too much for Rockland and Swampscott. In the semifinals, Westfield South broke open a 2-1 game with a 7-run sixth inning. Stu Gornall -- whose fourth inning solo home run broke both a 1-1 tie and a long hitting slump -- started the sixth inning rally with an RBI double. Josh Pepek and Tony Melo added RBI singles to widen the lead to 5-1, and additional runs came across on a balk, an error, a steal of home, and Greg Bevilacqua's single. Winning pitcher Tim Laurita allowed five hits and struck out seven. In the title game, Westfield South plated three in the second (on homers by Gornall and Erik Leen) and four in the third (Joe Strebel's three-run double keyed the rally) to take an 8-0 lead. After a six-run Swampscott third-inning rally, Westfield pushed the lead back to 11-6, and held on for the win.
