MILTON — Host No. 4 Milton on Friday edged No. 5 Middlebury Union High School, 3-1, in a Division II softball quarterfinal.
The loss to the 11-6 Yellowjackets snapped the Tigers’ five-game winning streak, one that moved them up in the D-II standings and allowed them to host and win a first-round playoff game. It was also the 9-7 Tigers’ fifth loss by three runs or fewer this spring, including three extra-inning setbacks. One of those came earlier at Milton, 9-8, in eight innings.
