Aidan Vogt scored on an RBI fielder’s choice in the bottom of the seventh inning to keep West End undefeated at the 14U state tournament with a 3-2 win over Haverford.

West End rallied in the bottom of the seventh after Haverford scored a pair of runs to tie the game in the top half of the inning. Royce Bowes and Trent Wentzel hit back-to-back one-out singles in the bottom of the seventh, and after an intentional walk loaded the bases Haverford brought in a fifth infielder. Christian Franzen fought off a breaking ball and Vogt broke for the plate and was able to score when the throw home short-hopped the catcher.

West End also won Saturday’s opener against UDHL, 7-3, despite recording just a pair of hits. West End was also the beneficiary of eight walks.
