Hagerstown was eliminated from the Pony League 13-year-old East Zone Tournament on Tuesday night, losing a 5-4 heartbreaker to Boardman (Ohio).
Hagerstown finished third with a 1-2 record in the four-team, double-elimination tournament. Hagerstown lost 8-7 in eight innings to Boardman on Sunday.
"I'm just proud of the way that we hung in there all night," Hagerstown manager Steve Blickenstaff said. "We tried hard and we did not give up. It was a very talented group of kids. We just didn't have the kind of luck that we needed to have against this team. It was our second one-run loss to them. Boardman got timely hitting. They hung in there like we did. They deserve a lot of credit."
Ty Benson had three hits for Hagerstown, which rallied from a 3-1 deficit by scoring three runs in the sixth. Christian Binford led off by blasting a solo homer to right. Andrew Moats followed with a double to center. One out later, Garrick Boward slugged a two-run homer to center.
