NEW CASTLE — Union 16,

Aliquippa 0

The Scotties erupted for nine runs in the third inning to secure the Section 3-A win over the host Quips.

The game was shortened to four innings because of the mercy rule.

Union (1-2, 1-4) took a 4-0 lead in the second and extended it to 13-0 after three and capped the scoring with three tallies in the fourth.

Anthony Rush and Devan Schuller each had two hits. Rush also had a double.

Schuller gave up just one hit in four innings of work, while striking out six and issuing two walks.

Wilmington 15,

Jamestown 0

Brenden Presnar and Jared Berlin combined to one-hit Jamestown in the win for the Greyhounds.

Nate Anthony and Travis Brumbaugh each reached base safely three times for Wilmington.

Ellwood City 21,

Beaver 0

Austin Richard and Justin Vetica each hit home runs to power the Wolverines past the host Bobcats in Section 5-AA action.

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

The Bobcats managed just one hit.

No other information was provided.


Shenango 18,

Western Beaver 0

The Lady Wildcats scored two runs in the top of the first and kept pouring it on in a Section 4-A road win over Western Beaver.

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

Shenango (4-0, 5-1) registered 13 hits in the victory.

Alexa Owrey and Carolyn Peterson pounded out three hits each for the Lady Wildcats. Kim Burdett and Elizabeth Quahliero notched two hits each for the winners.

Peterson drove in a team-best five runs and Burdett was next with three. Alyssa White and Quahliero added two RBIs each.

Burdett and Quahliero each hit home runs for Shenango. Burdett’s blast, her second of the year, was a two-run shot in the fourth inning and Quahliero’s was a two-run clout, also in the fourth. It was Quahliero’s first circuit clout of the campaign.

Shenango scored seven runs in the fourth frame.

“We had a really good day at the plate (yesterday),” Lady Wildcats coach Amy Delaney said. “We saw two totally different pitching styles the last two days.

“The girls made the adjustments earlier against Western Beaver. Western Beaver had slower velocity. It was another good section win; we did a nice job of running the bases, too.”

Macy Rubin (5-1) went the distance to earn the win. Rubin gave up one hit with a walk and five strikeouts.

The Lady Golden Beavers are 2-2, 2-2.
