The Hopkinton Hillers took down Millis 6-4 Monday afternoon in their final regular season home game. The Hillers clinched a playoff spot with last Thursdays victory over Bellingham. The Hillers are currently fighting for playoff seeding and for a chance at a home game. Currently the Hillers are 11 and 6 and have 3 more games this week to close out the regular season.

Evan Park took the mound Monday and started off shaky giving up 5 walks in the first inning which led to 2 Millis runs. The Mohawks lead did not last long as Chris Moberg responded on the bottom of the 1st with his 4th homer of the season, a 2 run blast to tie the game. Brendon Wolfe would put the Hillers up 3-2 with a sac fly-out to drive in Jack Vaccari on the bottom of the 2nd, but Park's struggles continued in the 3rd in which he gave up another walk, hit a batter and 2 more Mohawks runs came across, 1 on an error and the other on an RBI single by Ryan Smith putting Millis on top 4-3. Hopkinton responded on the bottom of the 4th with another 2 run homer, as Calvin Holland hit his 2nd HR of the season putting Hopkinton up 5-4. Andrew McMillan shifted over from Short Stop to relieve Park in the bottom of the 5th and pitched a shutout 2 1/3 innings. Brendon Wolfe responded with an RBI 1B in the bottom of the 6th and helped secure the Hillers 6-4 victory.

Hopkinton concludes their season with 3 more games this week on the road; Wednesday @ Medway and Thursday and Saturday @ Natick Tournament.
