#2 Bethel Park 6, Upper St Clair 3

  • 2013 IF David Lemley stroked two doubles in support of Logan Corrigan (James Madison), who picked up the win with six strikeouts in five innings of work.

#4 Bonner-Prendergast 12, Bishop McDevitt 0

  • Temple-bound Pat Vanderslice recorded 11 of the 12 outs in his four hitless innings by strikeout as the Friars cruised to a mercy-rule victory.

#15 Boyertown 9, #5 Methacton 7

  • The Bears took over first place in the PAC-10 on the strength of HRs from 2013 AJ Bogucki and 2013 catcher Cory Fox.  Boyertown took an early 5-0 lead, Methacton came back to lead 7-5, Boyertown tied it in the 4th, and a 2-spot in the 7th provided the final margin.  Bogucki (North Carolina) struck out 8 in 6 innings and Dan Woodley (East Stroudsburg) struck out the side in the 7th.  Clayton Harwick (West Chester) picked up three hits and three RBI for Methacton.

#6 South Park 9, Carrick 0

  • The Eagles got a combined no-hitter from Jake Bywalski (Concord) and 2015 Travis Thomas to remain undefeated on the season.

#7 Hopewell 9, Montour 7

Mount Lebanon 1, #8 Peters Township 0

  • With the game scoreless through six and a half innings, 2014 OF Darren Zaslau singled home the winning run, making a winner out of 2014 Zach Bahm (CG, 2 H, 6 K) in walk-off fashion.

Council Rock South 3, #10 Pennsbury 2

  • In a battle of Division I arms, Ryan Fleming (Rutgers) used 11 strikeouts to outduel Brandon Garrett (Rhode Island).  2013 Jake Lindahl put the Falcons in front with a 2-RBI single in the 6th.  That lead would be short-lived, however, as the Golden Hawks scored the tying and go-ahead runs on bases loaded walks in the bottom half.  2014 RHP Matt Walsh picked up the save.

#12 Pittsburgh Central Catholic 5, Gateway 1

  • Pitt-bound PJ DeMeo (1-1, 3B, 2 R, 2 RBI, 2 HBP, SB) and Grant Gustic (7 IP, 5 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 1 BB, 7 K) led the Vikings to win in a game they got out-hit (5-4).

#14 Pine-Richland 11, Penn Hills 8

  • 2014 JT Riley (3-4, 2 R, 2 2B, 2 RBI, SB), led a Rams offense that scored in every inning but the 4th, and saw each member of the line-up record at least one hit, one run scored, and one RBI in their comeback victory.

Fox Chapel 4, #17 North Allegheny 3

#19 Coatesville 3, Sun Valley 1

#20 Neumann-Goretti 8, Archbishop Wood 5

  • The Saints overcame an early four-run deficit to down the Vikings in the heated Catholic League Blue Division rivalry.  2014 LHP Charlie Jerla picked up the win with 5.1 innings of shutdown relief.

#21 Plum 10, Baldwin 2

  • Youth is served, as 2016 Alex Kiriloff (2-4, 2 2B, 3 RBI) and 2015 Brian Albert (3-3, 3 R, 2 SB), ranked #4 in the 2015 class on the strength of his mound work, pace the Mustangs offense.

#22 La Salle 10, Cardinal O'Hara 0

  • #17 ranked 2014 Dominic Cuoci tossed a 5-inning, 1-hit CG.  The Explorers banged out five extra-base hits and scored in every inning but the first in a game shortened by the mercy rule.

Ephrata 8, Elizabethtown 2

Conestoga 11, Garnet Valley 1

  • Another game, another double-digit victory for the Pioneers, who have won every contest this season by at least 10 runs.  2014 Andrew Turner (2-3, 2B, 3B, 3 RBI) led an 11-hit attack.

State College 5, Central Dauphin 0

  • #10 ranked 2014 Nick Raquet spun a CG, 3-hitter with 12 Ks.  #16 ranked 2015 Caleb Walls drove in two and scored another.

Strath Haven 11, Springfield HS 2

  • #36 ranked 2014 Kevin Mohollen (3-4, 4 R) continued on his torrid season-opening tear (now hitting .652 with 7 XBH, 10 RBI, 4 SB in 6 games).  2013 Donovan Davis contributed with the bat (3-5, 4 RBI) and on the mound (5 IP, 1 H, 2 BB, 6 K).  Strath Haven is hitting .371 as a team.

Wilson 2, Exeter Township 1

  • Kent State-bound Andy Ravel struck out nine in a complete game effort.

Valley View 5, Abington Heights 1

  • 2014 RHP Collin Ferguson tossed a CG, 5-hitter with 0 BB and 5 K.  He also went 2-3 with a run scored at the plate.

Penncrest 10, Ridley 9

  • Ridley scored three runs in the top of the 11th inning, but Penncrest came roaring back for the dramatic walk-off win.  2013 catcher Shane Donnelly hit a bases loaded double and his classmate Sean Heidig singled home the winning run in the decisive frame.

Blackhawk 2, Central Valley 0

  • #4 ranked 2014 Brendan McKay was a one-man wrecking crew, driving in one run and scoring the other, while also throwing a CG 1-hitter with 12 strikeouts.
