SCARBOROUGH — Mitchell Wedge tossed a complete game to lead Scarborough past Portland 4-3 in an SMAA baseball game Tuesday afternoon.

Wedge had a rough beginning, throwing 29 pitches in the first inning when he walked three and allowed two unearned runs without allowing a hit.

“I needed to buckle down and hit the mitt, throw it in the zone,” said Wedge. “If I’m walking people, that’s the only way they’re going to get around and score on me.”

Wedge settled down and scattered five hits for the game, walking six and striking out eight.

“(Wedge) has been getting progressively stronger as the games go on,” said Scarborough Coach Mike D’Andrea.

Wedge got in a jam in the top of the seventh when Portland (11-5) loaded the bases with two outs. He struck out the last batter on three pitches to end the game.

“We had our big hitters up in the last inning and didn’t get it done,” said Portland Coach Mike Rutherford. “Right now we’re playing not to lose instead of to win.”

The game was tied at 3-3 in the bottom of the sixth when Jack Hughes led off for Scarborough (13-3) by reaching on a wild pitch after he struck out.

The next batter popped up a bunt attempt and then Nick Lorello followed by reaching on a fielder’s choice. With two outs and Lorello on first, Tim Carion hit a grounder to second that was booted, leaving runners on first and second, and No. 3 hitter Josh Reed at the plate.

On an 0-1 pitch, Lorello took off for third base and Reed hit a sharp grounder to the position vacated by Portland’s third baseman and into left field to score Lorello and give Scarborough the go-ahead run.

Lorello was a catalyst at the top of the order for Scarborough, notching two hits, scoring two runs, driving in one and stealing a base.

Daniel Marzilli pitched a complete game for Portland. The left-hander allowed four runs (three earned) on nine hits, walking three and striking out eight.

After falling behind 2-0, Scarborough chipped away with one run in the third on a single by Cam Seymour. The Red Storm scored a pair of runs in the fourth on Carion’s RBI groundout and a single by Lorello to jump ahead, 3-2.

Portland tied the game at 3-3 in the top of the fifth when Joseph Fusco hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Jacob Knop.

Bayley Welsh played a tremendous game behind the plate for Scarborough. He stopped countless pitches in the dirt and throwing out the only runner who attempted to steal.

“Our MVP today was Bayley Welsh,” said D’Andrea. “I’m very, very pleased with his progress this year.”

Welsh also collected a pair of hits and scored a run.

Tuesday was the last game of the regular season for both teams and they both await how the game has affected their playoff seeding.

“I think there’s a lot of teams that are equal,” said Rutherford.

“I think there’s six or seven teams in this league that can win it all.”
