Newburyport comes back in seventh to beat Amesbury 16-15

(Continued)

Now guaranteed no worse than extra innings, the Clippers wound up loading the bases again after Schell was called for catcher’s interference, allowing Allman to reach first. To complete the rally, Johnston walked to drive in the game-winning run, giving Newburyport the improbable victory.

“It was good,” said Newburyport coach Lori Solazzo. “We had our innings where our bats weren’t there, but I would say that we kept our composure and went pitch by pitch and rolled with the punches.”

With the win, Newburyport improves to 2-2 on the season, while Amesbury falls to 2-1. Both teams will be back in action tomorrow, when Newburyport heads to Saugus and Amesbury faces Rockport at home. Each game is scheduled to begin at 3:45 p.m.
