Newburyport and Triton baseball may not be finished after all

(Continued)

Then on Tuesday, the Clippers kept rolling by beating Saugus 2-1 in 10 innings to improve to 6-9. It was the eighth time this season that Newburyport has seen a game decided by one run, and after coming out on the losing end for four of the first six, the Clippers are finally starting to see things come around their way.

Their luck may be turning around from a scheduling standpoint as well. Newburyport faces Masconomet today on the road, and the Clippers might be getting the Chieftains at the perfect time. After going 14-0 to start the season, Masconomet has now lost its last two games in a row, so the Clippers will be getting the Chieftains when they’re at their most vulnerable, at least in theory.

Now, to be clear, both of these teams still have a long way to go and little margin for error, but a late-season comeback to reach the postseason is well within the realm of possibility. All the Clippers and Vikings have to do is keep winning, and maybe, just maybe, they might be able to pull it off.

And if they do keep winning, then next Tuesday’s showdown between the two teams at Triton could be very interesting.
