On Wednesday night, the Ellington 10/11s beat Newington 9-8 in memorable comeback fashion! After trailing 6-0 after one inning, Ellington battled back to reduce the deficit to 8-5 going into the bottom of the fourth. Ellington scored 3 runs in the bottom of the 5th to take a 9-8 lead. Tremendous defense in the top of the 6th inning preserved an exciting 9-8 victory. A remarkable performance to comeback from a large deficit and pull out the victory!
