Spring Sports: A roundup of action from April 1


NEW CASTLE — Reynolds 5,

Wilmington 4

The Raiders tallied a marker in the bottom of the seventh with one out to rally for a District 10, Region 2-AA home win over Wilmington.

The game was tied at 4 heading to the last of the seventh.

Travis Brumbaugh started for the Greyhounds (0-1, 0-1), but didn’t factor in the decision. Brumbaugh pitched five innings, allowing one hit and three runs — one earned — with three walks and three strikeouts.

Nate Anthony suffered the loss in relief. Anthony tossed 1 1/3 innings, giving up four hits and two runs — both earned — with a walk and no strikeouts.

“The game was very close the entire way,” Wilmington coach Garett Malinak said. “Our kids played very hard and just came up short in the end.

“Our pitching was very good today, but we made too many mental and physical mistakes to get the win.”

Ambridge 10,

New Castle 5

The Red Hurricane struggled to string together any offense off Bridgers pitcher Matt Cunningham in the nonsection home setback.

New Castle (3-2) managed just four hits off Cunningham, who went five innings and allowed four runs to record the win for Ambridge.

The Bridgers jumped out to a 7-0 lead in the top of the third inning and the ’Canes battled back to within 7-4 after five innings. Ambridge slammed the door with three runs in the sixth inning.

Joe Gunn and Gino Quahliero each singled twice for New Castle, while Rob Mielcusney suffered the loss. He allowed five runs on two hits and four walks in 1 2/3 innings.

Western Beaver 13,

Union 1

The Golden Beavers jumped out to an early 8-0 lead in the first inning and never looked back.

The Section 3-A matchup was stopped after five innings because of the mercy rule.

The Scotties (0-1, 0-3) found themselves in a 12-0 hole before Logan Schuller’s RBI single drove in Cody Smith in the bottom of the third.

Western Beaver added an insurance run in the fourth and finished with 14 hits.

Smith and Jacob Jendrysik posted two hits each for Union.

Devan Schuller gave up eight runs on four hits and three walks in just 2/3 of an inning for Union.
