A Brief Recap of Day 1

It's that time of year again, where teams from across the state vie for a few precious positions in one of the nation's top state tournaments.  Fifty-six teams entered the day hoping to win one of seven regional championship spots into next week's tournament in West Lawn.  

In Region 2, defending regional champion and state runner-up Pennridge continued their torrid postseason run with a four run win over Northern Valley.  Nazareth used the long ball to propel themselves to a double digit win over Fullertown.  In the evening games, perennial power Boyertown forced a seven inning mercy rule win over Bath.  The host Nor-Gwyn moved into the winner's bracket with an exciting win over Southern Area.

The defending state champion Spring City opened regional action early Saturday in Region 3, there they topped Whitpain by eleven in seven innings.  Fort Washington, using metal bats for the first time this season, defeated Philadelphia's champion Olney in game two.  In another mercy rule game, Bristol topped Wayne in a shortened game.  NorChester kept their game rolling with a seven inning shut out against Narberth.

In Region 4, Red Land opened tournament play with a three run win over Waynesboro.  In game two, Ephrata topped former regional champion Hummelstown by a run.  Rallying after the funeral of a friend, Southwestern York needed just seven innings to top Annville by thirteen.  New Oxford knocked off the tournament's host by fourteen in the nightcap.

In the longest game of the day, Back Mountain beat Jersey Shore by a run in eleven innings in Region 5.  Despite a big early lead, Danville topped FMS by just a run in game two.  Canton and Green Ridge continued the region's close contests with Canton earning a two run victory.  Former regional champion Plains got the best of host Bloomsburg, beating them by ten.

In a great morning and afternoon of baseball, California opened up the Region 6 tournament with a one run win over Monroeville.  Regional power Blackhawk, a former state champion, defeated Keystone Oaks by a run in game two.  Bethel Park had the biggest win of the day in the regional, knocking off Peters Township by six.  In the final game of the day, New Brighton topped the host Shaler by a pair of runs.

Bushy Run began the Region 7 tournament by getting a two run victory over Indiana.  In game two, West Hempfield blanked Beech Creek and won by five.  DuBois defeated Claysburg by three in a hard fought third game.  Mifflin County took home the day's biggest win with a ten run shut-out against host Bedford.

And in Region 8, Meadville began the day with a close one run win over Corry.  Albion/Edinboro made the most of their bid with a thirteen run mercy rule victory over Wilcox in seven innings.  Defending regional champion Millcreek got off to another solid tournament start with a seven inning eleven run win.  Last we had heard, host Saegertown was leading Meridian in the final game of the day.  We'll confirm that final as soon as we have it.
