On Sunday I made the trip to Washington Nationals Youth Baseball Academy to watch the two semifinal games and the championship game of the DCSAA tournament. The two semifinal game matchups included Maret vs. St. John's College Prep and Wilson (DC) vs. Gonzaga. 

The first game was a continuation of the Maret vs. St. John's game that was attempted to be played the few days prior. The game picked up in the bottom of the first inning. Maret sent 2022 Andrew Catron back out to the mound and he was opposed by St. John's senior Ethan Mishra (VCU). This was a low scoring affair on both ends, as Catron and Mishra had strong outings. St. Johns would get on the board in the bottom of the fourth on a Flynn Howard groundball that would bring in Quinn Allen (ECU) to make it 1-0. In the top of fifth Maret would answer with one of their own off the bat of Chip Krese. The freshman would double to deep right field, but that would be the last time Mishra would allow a Maret run to cross. In the bottom half of the fifth Brayden Martin (FSU) would single through the left side to make it 3-1 and the Cadets of St. Johns would never look back. Final score held at 3-1 with St. Johns advancing to the championship game.
