East Bay

BRISTOL, Conn. (WPRI) — The Barrington Little League team is onto the New England tournament semifinals after beating Bradford, Vermont 6-4 in seven innings.

Barrington scored two runs in the top of the seventh inning on a Christopher Promades single. Alex Anderson threw 3 2/3 innings of scoreless baseball.

Barrington will take on New Hampshire in Thursday’s semifinals. If they win, they would head to the finals and be one win away from the Little League World Series in Williamsport. If they lose, they would move down to the loser’s bracket and have to play the winner of Wednesday’s game between Maine and Connecticut if they were to move on to the finals.

It’s the first time Barrington has represented Rhode Island as state champions since 1975. The team is trying to become the fifth Rhode Island team in the last six years to advance to Williamsport for the Little League World Series, joining Cumberland (2014), Cranston West (2015), Warwick North (2016) and Coventry (2018).

Thursday’s game will be televised on ESPN at 1 p.m. or you can follow along online on GameChanger.
