Bethlehem 3, Tri-Town 2: It didn’t take long for top-seeded Bethlehem to finish off its suspended game with Tri-Town on Thursday.Following the suspension of Wednesday’s Tri-State Baseball League playoff game, the Plowboys plated a run in the bottom of the 10th inning to finally defeat the Trojans, 3-2.The game was halted after nine innings on Wednesday due to darkness with the score knotted at 2-2.The Plowboys got right to work when the game resumed. After winning pitcher Tyler Erickson tossed a scoreless top half of the 10th, Aaron Granahan led off the bottom of the frame with a single and promptly stole second.Granahan didn’t stay there long as Matt Parlato followed with double to plate him with the winning run.
On Wednesday, the Plowboys fell behind the fifth-seeded Trojans 2-0 in the first inning, but cut the lead in half in the bottom of the inning. Bethlehem (19-5, 1-1 playoffs) threatened several times to tie or even take the lead throughout the contest, but couldn’t do so until the bottom of the ninth.

Bethlehem (21-6, 2-0) now awaits the winner of the Brass City/Watertown contest that will be finished this evening. Tri-Town faces Winsted at 11 a.m. on Saturday at Community Field in Litchfield.
