The Rhode Island Salty Dog 50+ squad won their division this past Sunday in the Rhode Island MSBL. This is their 11th consecutive championship! They beat the Colt 45s, who finished first in the division, in the best of three championship series. The Salty Dogs finished 19-6 on the season.
The Dogs came back in the ninth scoring three runs to win a hard-fought battle. Dan Fitta pitched a nine-inning complete game for the Salts while Hiram Barber pitched a great complete game for the 45s.
Game two was clinched by the Dawgs with great pitching from Peter Parente, who went six innings, and Jim Clark, who finished it up. The ‘45s got a tremendous effort my Steve Lallo, who pitched the entire nine innings.
