Morris 15, G-MU 9
COPES CORNERS – Morris jumped out to a 7-0 lead before G-MU got on the board, and the Mustangs’ seven-run sixth inning put the game out of reach Wednesday.
Bryant Holmes hit a two-run single in a four-run first inning, and after the Mustangs nibbled for three more runs, took advantage of numerous G-MU mistakes to score seven more. Matt Joyce’s two-run single capped the frame. “As it turns out, we could have easily been out of that inning (the sixth) with no damage,” said G-MU coach Jim Johnson. “We made some errors and poor mistakes of where to throw the ball.”
Luke Acanfora ended G-MU’s seven-run sixth inning with a two-run double, and eighth-grader Corin Todd paced the Raiders with three hits. Cody Hall and Tim Sloan finished with two hits apiece.

Greene 8, Delhi 4
GREENE – A fast start and strong finish allowed Greene to hold off Delhi’s upset bid Wednesday.
Don Amell, Keith Savory, Dan Carlin, and Nate Whittaker all had ribbies in the first inning, then the scoring button was turned off until late in the game.
After Delhi pulled to within 5-4 in the sixth, Dan Carlin hit an RBI single and Justin Van Wert added a two-run sacrifice fly to end the arithmetic. “Delhi played a strong game against us, but we gutted it out,” said Greene coach Dave Gorton. “We had a couple of guys under the weather, but when we needed big plays, we kept getting the runs.”
Don Amell pitched six innings for the win and Keith Savory tossed a scoreless seventh. Carlin went 3-for-4 with two RBI, while Amell and Whittaker each finished 2-for-4.

Oxford 7, B-G 0
BAINBRIDGE – Steve Locke remained perfect in seven decisions this season throwing a four-hit shutout against B-G Wednesday.
Locke struck out five for the Blackhawks (15-1) and did not walk a batter, while surrendering just four hits – two in the last inning. “He (Locke) pretty much kept us under control – the seventh was about our only offensive threat in the game,” said B-G coach Steve Rice.
