ST. JOHNSBURY — The California kid struck gold in Vermont.

Tyler Beck, visiting the NEK for the summer from the Golden State, hit a game-winning two-run single in the bottom of the sixth inning to lift the top-seeded Red Sox to a thrilling 9-8 victory over the second-seeded Yankees in the St. Johnsbury Baseball league tournament championship on Thursday night at Legion Field.

Eric Johnson scored the winning run, setting off a wild Red Sox celebration.

The Red Sox trailed 5-1 after the first inning, trimmed the deficit to 6-4 after three and entered the sixth inning down 8-5 before their final rally.

Beck finished the game with two hits and four RBIs. Isaiah Christie had two RBIs for the Yankees.
