Scores, Videos and Recaps From Tuesday Night
Plant 8, Strawberry Crest 0
All nine players in the starting lineup reached base, as a well-balanced Plant offense -- combined with six shutout innings from junior Brock Fagler -- guided the Panthers to a 8-0 victory over Strawberry Crest on Tuesday night.
Plant opened the scoring in the 2nd with a Zach Koch RBI single and then doubled the lead on a sweet RBI bunt single by AJ Hubbard in the 3rd. Koch and Hubbard each had two hits.
Mike Haydak made it 3-0 with an RBI double in the 4th and also added an RBI single in the 5th.
The next inning, Connor Scott (2 for 3 with a double) lined a shot for a home run over the fence in right to make it 5-0 and the rout was on. Mike Paleaz was 2 for 3 with two runs scored.
The Chargers had the leadoff man on in the first four innings but Fagler was able to wiggle out of it every time as he induced two double plays and struck out six.
Derek Barone had two hits for Strawberry Crest and leadoff man Tanner Kelley reached base in all three appearances (HBP, walk, double).
Newsome 7, Bloomingdale 4
Newsome (13-7) rallied back behind a game-tying three-run home run by senior Joey Raffaele in the sixth, and a game-deciding two run shot from Tyler Doyle to defeat nearby rival Bloomingdale (9-10). Freshman Cole Stallings earned the win tossing two innings with one strike out and fielding two comebackers.
