The Hagerstown Colt League White All-Stars came up on the short end of both a pitchers' duel and a slugfest on Sunday, and the lights went out on the 2007 season.
Brad Comport's solo home run in the sixth inning gave North Allegheny a 2-1 victory and spoiled Brandon Knight's gem in the first game of the East Zone West Regional championship round, forcing a deciding game at Hellane Park.
Playing their third game of the day and fifth in two days, North Allegheny never let up, scoring six runs before Hagerstown ever swung a bat and rolling to a 14-7 victory and the title.
"They shut us down hitting-wise in the first game, and it carried over," Hagerstown manager Brad Hineman said.
Knight allowed four hits and struck out 10 in the first game, but it was Comport's shot that mattered most.
The victory breathed added life into North Allegheny, and it teed off with six hits in the first inning of the second game. Jackson Boyd produced the biggest knock - a three-run homer - and RBI singles by Dan Wentz and Nick Butterini added to the damage off Hagerstown starter Kyle Crist.
