LOWELL -- Nashoba Regional's magical ride through the postseason came to a disappointing end Saturday afternoon at LeLacheur Park.

Bruemmel was as good as advertised, masterfully baffling Nashoba for a two-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts in a 4-0 victory in the Division 1 state final.
"The kid pitched a great game," Nashoba coach Chuck Schoolcraft said. "There's nothing you can do about it. He had us off-balance all day long, and whoever called the game over there did a really good job. We just couldn't hit the ball today.
"These kids have nothing to hang their heads about. They had a great season."
It was a historic season for the Nashoba (21-4) baseball program, which won its first district title during this memorable journey.
