Jonah Wachter continued his dominance of the 13-15 Babe Ruth World Series, but the offense for the Concord All-Stars remained quiet Sunday.

Wachter followed up his gem from Thursday with six more hitless innings before Tallahassee, Fla., struck for three runs in the seventh as part of a 3-0 victory in the third game of pool play for both teams in Longview, Wash.

For the second straight day, the New England champs struggled to solve the opposing pitcher as Tallahassee’s Will Brown went the distance with four strikeouts and just two hits allowed in the shutout victory.

Wachter, who has looked overpowering at times during the tournament, matched Brown pitch for pitch before running into trouble in the seventh.

He surrendered three runs on two hits, with the third run crossing the plate when Tallahassee’s Argene Lynn made a gutsy steal of home.

Wachter finished with six strikeouts and recorded 36 outs in the tournament before allowing his first base hit.

Wachter and Concord teammate Jarrad Willette notched one hit apiece in the loss, which drops New Hampshire to 1-2 in the tournament.

Concord is set to face Mifflin County, Pa., in a pivotal game Monday at 4:30 p.m.

The single elimination portion of the tournament begins Tuesday.
