BASEBALL: Springfield edges New Hope in 10 innings

For Montgomery Media / SUSAN KEEN Springfield players celebrate after winning in the bottom of the 10th inning of Wednesday's District One Class AA playoff game against New Hope.
It wasn’t pretty, but Springfield’s bid at a district championship three-peat is still alive.

Between Springfield and New Hope-Solebury, a combined 11 errors were committed. Eight unearned runs crossed home plate, eight batters were hit by pitches and zero extra-base hits were recorded, but it was the Spartans who came up big when it mattered most.

Fitting to the way the game turned out, the Spartans scored their game-winning run on a misplayed routine groundball in the bottom of the 10th inning in a three-plus hour marathon game. The final result was a 7-6 win for the Spartans over the visiting Lions in a District One Class AA quarterfinal at Springfield High School on Wednesday afternoon.
