The Panthers came to bat in the home half of the sixth intent on making sure they didn’t squander another chance, and backed it up by putting a crooked number on the scoreboard.
“It was great to finally see kids cash in. They got some confidence and they relaxed,” said Wilbur. “That’s a big win for us against a fine ballclub. You have to play well in all phases to beat those guys.”
The Tanners (11-1 NEC) suffered their first conference loss, but still hold a three-game lead over Beverly (8-4 NEC) in the Large Division with five games to go.
