Caleb Viola’s line single through the shortstop hole drove in Jacob Kulig with the winning run in the 11th inning as the Red Riots (8-0) beat Portland (4-4) at South Portland.
Hunter Owen and Bradley McMains of South Portland combined for nine strikeouts while holding the Bulldogs to two hits. But they were victimized by seven errors.

Portland pitcher Donny Tocci gave up five runs in the second, then combined with reliever Brian Riley to hold South Portland scoreless for the next eight innings. Tocci and Riley totaled 10 strikeouts.

Tyler Small keyed the Riots’ five-run second, hitting an RBI double and scoring on Anthony Poole’s two-run single.
