TRUMBULL, Conn. -- Eddie Ferris hit a two-run double in a seven-run seventh inning Tuesday as the Pittsfield Babe Ruth 13-year-old All-Stars pulled away for an 11-4 win over Tri-County, Maine, in the semi-finals of the New England Regional Championship.
The Maine state champs scored three runs to take a 3-1 lead in the top of the third inning, but Pittsfield scored three in the bottom of the fourth to retake the lead for good.
Goo Stannard hit a line drive single to score Boo Socie to make it 3-3, and Christian Barry singled to drive in Stannard and give Pittsfield a 4-3 lead.
Barry finished the game 3-for-4 with two RBIs.
Connor Paronto, Ferris, Andrew Hammill, Luke Ferguson and Stannard each had a pair of hits.
Ferguson, Cam Hillard and Paronto split time on the mound, striking out five.
Pittsfield moves on to Wednesday morning's regional championship game against Waterford, Conn., a 3-1 winner over host Trumbull on Tuesday morning.
The winner of the New England regional earns the right to represent the region at the World Series in Virginia.
