"The Franklin baseball team had not scored in five innings while watching Milford turn a 6-1 deficit into an extra-innings ballgame in the Massachusetts American Legion Senior Baseball Tournament. Two outs into the bottom of the eighth, it had seen six pitches and struck out twice. Up came Luke Sidwell.
Franklin’s rising senior wasted no time, placing a bunt down the third base line on the first pitch. After a hit batter, Jack Marino stepped up to the plate, and his plate-protecting swing lofted a soft liner to left that fell in front of Scott Pagliuca and sealed the 7-6 victory at Milford’s Fino Field (Franklin was the home team, as decided by a coin toss)."
