Day two of the Ed Carter Memorial baseball tournament matched teams from pool play in medal round action. Following is a wrap up of the three games played on Saturday.

championship round

3rd Place Game:  George Washington 19  Independence 9

  • Tanner SorrelsThe 3rd place game began at 11:00am instead of the originally scheduled 2:00pm start time due to prom considerations. As often happens when high school teams play three games in two days, offenses tend to feast on pitching. George Washington did more of the feasting, and if not for some shoddy defensive play, would have ended the game by mercy rule in the 5th inning. Tanner Sorrells and Garrett Vogelbach led an 11 hit attack for the Patriots combining for six runs scored, five hits, four home runs and 13 RBI.

5th Place Game:  St. Albans 8  Riverside 7

  • Clark Bryant went the distance to pick up the win on the mound for St. Albans. He yielded 12 hits but threw strikes and gave his team a chance to win. Bryant also led the offense going 3-for-4 with two doubles, two runs scored and two RBI. Aaron Halstead hit a home run and drove in two runs for Riverside.

Championship Game:  Parkersburg South 7  Hurricane 6

  • Connor Adams appeared to have had a Sportscenter moment when he hit a solo home run in the top of the 7th inning to stake Hurricane to a 6-5 lead. His game-winning heroics were upstaged as Parkersburg South rallied for two runs without Hurricane recording an out in the bottom of the 7th to walk away with the tournament championship. Tyler Berry was the hitting star for the Patriots going 3-for-4 with a run scored and three RBI, including the game winning single that drove in two runs in the 7th. Wes Mitchem was the beneficiary of the late game heroics picking up the complete game win. Mitcham gave up 6 runs on 12 hits, but was able to work out of several jams to keep his team in the game.
