TRI-STATE PLAYOFFS: Wolcott Scrappers are lone local team left

One round of the Connecticut Tri-State Baseball League Playoffs is done, and only one local team remains.
The No. 10 Bristol Greeners and No. 12 Brass City Brew were both swept out of the first round, leaving the No. 3 Wolcott Scrappers. Wolcott had a bye through the first round.


The Wolcott Scrappers have a good home field advantage at the BAW Complex,
where the field plays deep (328 feet to left, 322 right, 375 center).
The Scrappers start a best-of-three series against the No. 6 Tri-Town Trojans on Sunday, July 3. Tri-Town swept the No. 11 Tribury Twisters out of the playoffs.
The Trojans have been to the championship series in each of the past three seasons. Tri-Town lost to Wolcott in the 2014 series.
The Scrappers are looking to get out of the second round after having been eliminated by the champion Litchfield Cowboys last year.
Wolcott won the regular season meeting against Tri-Town, 3-1 on June 19 at Community Field in Litchfield.
Here's what happened in that game, via the Tri-State website:

TJ Williams threw a complete game scattering seven hits while striking out eight to lead Wolcott. Ryan Andrade got the scoring started with a sac fly scoring Mike Perugini in the third. Sam Shurberg drove in Landon Gardella with a single to tie the game in the fifth. Matt Cyr gave Wolcott the lead for good with a two run double scoring Eric Soucy and Mike Perugini in the seventh.

It should be a competitive series between the Scrappers and Trojans. Go to the Tri-State website to get the times and locations of the games in the series (they haven't been posted as of today).
