Otters, Eagle nines get D-II home games

ADDISON COUNTY — The Otter Valley Union High School baseball team (10-6) received the No. 3 seed in Division II, the best playoff position awarded to a local nine by the Vermont Principals’ Association.
The Otters were set to host No. 14 Milton (3-12) on Tuesday, but faced the Yellowjackets on Wednesday (after deadline) instead after a weather postponement. Next up for the Otters would be either No. 6 Bellows Falls (8-7) or No. 11 Woodstock (10-6) in a Friday quarterfinal. OV split two games with Bellows Falls, but did not play the Wasps this spring.
Defending champion Mount Abraham (7-9) earned the No. 5 seed in D-II. The Eagles were scheduled to host No. 12 Lyndon (5-10) on Tuesday, but that game was also postponed until Wednesday. A win on Wednesday would mean the Eagles would on Friday either visit No. 4 U-32 (10-5) or host No. 13 Harwood (5-9).
Middlebury finished at 1-15 and did not qualify for the Division I playoffs.
In the only action on Tuesday, No. 7 Lake Region ousted No. 10 Vergennes, 4-3, in a first-round D-II playoff game. The Rangers’ winning run scored in the bottom of the seventh on a two-out Commodore error, making a hard-luck loser of senior VUHS ace Hunter O’Connor, who threw a complete game.
Lake Region’s Parker Brown also tossed a complete game, striking out nine and limiting VUHS to three hits. One of them came from Casey Kimball, who drove in two of the Commodore runs with a hit. Lake Region improved to 9-7, while VUHS wrapped up at 5-12.
In the only regular season game played over the weekend, Otter Valley nailed down the No. 3 seed by topped visiting Mill River, 11-2. Payson Williams earned the pitching win with four shutout innings, catcher Daniel Allen drilled a three-run homer and poked two other hits, and Reilly Shannon also finished with three hits for OV.
