The Hopkinton High School baseball team fell into an early hole and could not come back, dropping an 8-4 decision to visiting Marblehead in the Division 2 state tournament on Monday.

Marblehead scored once in the first and four times in the second for a 5-0 lead. Hopkinton fought back with one in the third as Nick Pedroli singled and eventually scored on a wild pitch, and one in the fourth as Charlie Simulis singled and pinch-runner Jack Interrante later scored on a bases-loaded walk to Will Morgan.

However, Marblehead bounced back with three runs in the top of the fourth inning to extend its lead to 8-2. Hopkinton scored single runs in the fourth (Mitch Simulis singled and scored on a fly ball by Dylan Ruff) and fifth (Joe Carrazza reached on a wild pitch and scored on another wild pitch), but left eight runners on base on the day.
