NEW CASTLE — Wilmington 2,

Reynolds 1

Travis Brumbaugh was spectacular on the mound in a District 10, Region 2-AA victory at Reynolds.

Brumbaugh (1-0) went six innings and struck out 12 batters. He also scored both of the Greyhounds’ runs. Davis Smith drove Brumbaugh home in the fifth with two outs to tie the game and Jimmy Pitzulo drove in Brumbaugh in the seventh for the winning run.

Wilmington (1-0 region, 2-0 overall) would have all the runs it needed as Ryan Brumbaugh earned his first save of the season with a scoreless inning.


Shenango 12,

Rochester 2

The Lady Wildcats belted 16 hits en route to a Section 4-A home win over Rochester and their third straight win. The game was stopped after five innings because of the mercy rule.

Shenango (2-0, 3-2) has outscored the opposition, 46-6, in the last three games.

“It was another good section win for us,” Lady Wildcats coach Amy Delaney said. “I thought the girls played really well and we hit the ball very well.

“We were definitely coming through with runners on base. I thought we did a really good job at the plate.”

Eight different Lady Wildcats batters had at least one hit. Alexa Owrey, Kim Burdett and Shelby McCart posted three hits apiece for Shenango.

Alyssa White and Hana Murphy notched two hits each for the Lady Wildcats. Burdett drove in six runs for the winners and Jenna DeLuca added a pair. DeLuca and Burdett both hit a home run. Burdett’s blast was a two-run homer in the fifth frame to end the game, her first homer of the season. DeLuca slammed a two-run shot in the first inning, her second of the year.

Macy Rubin (3-2) earned the win, giving up two hits and two runs — one earned — with a walk and seven strikeouts.

“Macy pitched a good game,” Delaney said. “I thought she did a good job of keeping Rochester off balance.”
