No. 2 Taunton clinched a MIAA D1 state championship on June 18 with a 2-1 victory over No. 1 Franklin at LeLacheur Park in Lowell. Taunton took the rubber match of the Hockomock League rivals, as each team won on its own turf in the regular season. It’s a fitting end to a state tournament in which the Hockomock League was clearly the state’s power conference with two D1 finalists and one D2 finalist. Taunton also won a D1 state championship in 2019. New England Baseball Journal photographer Kyle Prudhomme provided a gallery of the game's highlights.
