Local teams fall in high school baseball

ADDISON COUNTY — Area high school baseball teams concluded the regular season this past Thursday with setbacks in close games.
The Vermont Principals’ Association was set to release playoff pairings on Monday morning. Mount Abraham, Vergennes and Otter Valley will open Division II play on the road on Tuesday or Wednesday, while Middlebury (0-15) will not qualify for the D-I playoffs after losing its last two games this past Friday and Saturday. 
The Eagles lost at BFA-St. Albans, 2-0, despite a strong, complete-game pitching effort from Ernie Brouillard. BFA finished at 8-8.
The 4-12 Eagles appear to have earned the No. 13 seed in D-II and could open at No. 4 Bellows Falls (11-5).
Host Missisquoi outlasted VUHS, 5-2. Commodore Dylan Raymond went the route in taking the loss, and Camden Simpson andJosh Sickles rapped two hits apiece.
VUHS (3-13) might be awarded the No. 14 seed and face No. 3 Milton (10-5) in the opening round.
On the same day, the visiting Otters nearly upset D-II top seed Mill River (15-1), taking a 4-0 lead in the third inning before falling, 7-5. John Winslow homered for OV, and losing pitcher Derek Aines contributed a pair of hits.
OV (1-14-1) has also had some close results vs. D-I teams in recent weeks, including a one-run loss to Burr & Burton and a two-run game vs. Rutland. The Otters will apparently be the No. 15 seed and could open the playoffs at Lamoille (14-2).
