Severna Park 10, Perry Hall 3
Falcons get seven runs in the last two innings to break open a 3-1 game en route to the 10-3 victory.  Kody Milton went 2-for-3 with four RBI and Brendan Clark was 3-for-4 with a homerun and two RBI to lead Severna Park offensively.  Ryan Yesner went 6.1 innings allowing three runs on six hits and three strikeouts. 

Matt Thomas started the scoring early for the Falcons, scoring Andrew Anawalt on a single up the middle.  Severna Park would add two more in the third scoring on a wild pitch and Milton hitting a sacrifice fly.  Perry Hall added their first run of the game in the bottom of the fourth.

Clark’s leadoff home run to right field got the scoring started in the sixth in which the Falcons put up two more runs. Severna Park added four more in the top of the seventh highlighted by Milton’s 2-RBI single.

Gaithersburg 16, Wise 0
The Trojans put up four runs in the first two innings and never looked back, getting the 16-0 win in commanding fashion. Nick Pantos continued his hot playoffs leading the Trojans with a single and double scoring four runs to lead the offense. Gaithersburg took advantage of 13 walks and five error by Wise in the game. The Trojans officially had five hits in the game.

The scoring started in the first when Brad Sawyer and Pantos each scored with Trey Martinez at the plate. Two wild pitches during Martinez’s at-bat plate the two runs. In the second inning the Trojans would add two more one off another Wise wild pitch and then a Tim Traynor sacrifice fly down the right field line. 

Pantos double over the right fielder’s head would start the third inning and Pantos moved to third off Martinez coming a few feet short of a homerun to center field. Grant Mixell hit a shallow fly ball into “no-man’s land” over the third baseman’s head into left field that bounced out of the third baseman’s glove.  Pantos would score on the play.  After a Aaron Vargas drag bunt in which he advanced to second after an errant throw, runners were on second and third with one out. A Corey Scholl sacrifice fly turned into two runs after an errant throw and the rout was on. 


Chopticon 6, Urbana 2
Ljay Newsome struck out 13 and scatter eight hits in a complete game effort to lead the Braves to the 6-2 victory over Urbana. 

The game was 2-1 heading into the fourth inning when the braves scored three runs to extend their lead and never look back.  Nick Grey started the rally with a walk and then proceeded to steal second.  After a sacrifice bunt moved him to third, a slash (fake bunt followed by swing) by Chris Lawrence scored Grey.  Lawrence would then steal second and CJ Hill would knock him in on a single. 

Robby Kidwell played a large part in Chopticon keeping the lead.  The senior catcher threw out two runners trying to steal in the Urbana half of the fifth inning limiting Urbana to only one run scored in the inning.  Kidwell would also pick off a runner in the top of the second. 

Urbana was led by Danny Smith who went 3-for-3 with a double. 

Mt. Hebron 3, North Harford 2
Mt. Hebron ended Sean Bowling's no-hit bid in the top of the seventh inning by scoring three runs in the top of the seventh inning to get the 3-2 victory over North Harford.  Kevin Broache had the game tying RBI for Mt. Hebron on a sacrifice fly to right field.  Daniel Brouse gets the go-ahead RBI single giving the Vikings the 3-2 lead in which they held for the win.

North Harford took a quick 2-0 lead in the first inning off Viking starter Mark Smith highlighted by an RBI single by Nick Ford.
