NEW CASTLE — Neshannock 19,

Aliquippa 0

The game was stopped after three innings because of the mercy rule.


Union 10,

Beaver Falls 5

Carrington Bell delivered for Union in a nonsection home win over Beaver Falls.

Bell had two hits, including a grand slam, with five RBIs. The homer, his first of the year, came in the second inning to lift the Scotties to a 7-2 lead.

“It was a good at-bat for Carrington; he got it good. I knew it was gone,” Union coach Mark Stanley said.

Wayne Seamans added two hits for the Scotties, who had 10 total hits.

“I was pleased with the hitting,” Stanley said. “We’ve been swinging the bats much better.”

Devan Schuller (3-1) tossed a complete game to pick up the win, allowing six hits and five runs — four earned — with three walks and seven strikeouts.

“Schuller battled on the mound,” Stanley said. “He changed speeds well and he mixed his pitches. I was pleased. His walks were down and his strikeouts were up.”

Union scored a run in the first, six in the second, one in the third and two more in the sixth.

The Tigers tallied solo markers in each of the first three innings before plating two in the fourth.
