Canandaigua lost a game short of the Class A state baseball final for a second straight year Friday, falling 5-4 to Section IV champion Maine-Endwell at Union-Endicott High School.
Seth Vigneri tagged a first-pitch, three-run home run with no one out in the last of the fifth to draw Section V’s champion within 5-4. But M-E pitcher Adam Rutkowski retired six of the final seven batters, surrendering only a one-out walk in the seventh to round out a second successive complete game in the state playoffs.
