VUHS nine to play for D-III title after perfect game
CHESTER — The Vergennes Union High School baseball team will play for the Division III championship this weekend.
The No. 3 Commodores earned a berth in the title game on Tuesday by defeating host No. 2 Green Mountain Union, 10-0 in five innings, as sophomore hurler Jarret Muzzy tossed a perfect game.
Muzzy threw just 56 pitches, retired 15 batters in a row, and struck out four while the Commodores played errorless defense on the 11 balls the Chieftans put in play. Rightfielder Ira White and second baseman Robbie Bicknell fielded the toughest chances, according to the Rutland Herald.
The 14-5 Commodores will play undefeated top seed White River Valley (17-0) at the University of Vermont on either Friday or Saturday; see Scoreboard for the game time. They will be seeking the program’s third title since 2007; VUHS won the D-II title in 2007 and 2012.
Offensively on Tuesday Tucker Stearns led the attack with two doubles and five RBIs. Jeffrey Stearns added two hits, and Cooper O’Brien singled, walked three times and scored three runs. Green Mountain Union finished 14-3.
