WILBRAHAM, Mass. -- North Attleborough's Justin Neidel hit a ground-rule double down the right field line to give his team a 13-3 walkoff win over Sheffield Post 340 on Saturday at the American Legion Junior Baseball State Tournament.   But Sheffield will be ready to walk back into the thick of things on Sunday at Spec Pond in an elimination game in the eight-team tourney.   "If this was a normal game and not a tournament, we had two other guys who were pitchers who could have come in and kept it closer," Sheffield coach Jesse Carpenter said. "But we had to keep two guys for tomorrow."   Sheffield, which just finished its Western Mass tournament on

Tight races abound in the Berkshire Adult Baseball league, where just one game in the loss column separates the top three teams in the over-35 division and the top two teams in the 20-year-old division.   A key game in the 35s comes on Sunday in Lenox, where the first-place Berkshire Thunder (9-2) takes on the third-place Berkshire Bandits (7-3).   The division's second-place team, the Adams Aces (7-2) has two games in the next five days, playing Tunnel City at Alcombright Field on Wednesday and the Greenridge Gremlins at the Dalton Legion field on Sunday.   Last week in the 35-year-old division, Jarrett Bayliss threw a no-hitter to lead the Dalton Moneymakers past the
