Bainbridge-Guilford 11, Greene 7
GREENE – Bainbridge-Guilford picked up its sixth win of the season topping Greene in a back-and-forth contest Thursday.
Greene scored four runs in the bottom of the fifth to close the B-G lead to 8-7. The Bobcats gained some needed insurance with three runs in the seventh. Danny Gormley hit a two-run double, and Corbin Palmer followed with an RBI single.
Gormley went 4-for-4 with two RBI, Paul Parsons had two hits including a two-run homer in the first, and Billy Holden had two hits and two RBI for B-G (6-2, 6-3).
Jeff Carlin was a perfect 4-for-4 to lead Greene, who failed to executed a squeeze play in the fifth that would have tied the game. “Greene came out stroking the ball, and the top of their order is pretty solid,” said B-G coach Tim Mattingly. “They have some young kids; their future looks bright.”

Norwich 12, Windsor 3
WINDSOR – Norwich resumed its winning ways Thursday at Windsor plating nine runs over the final two innings to dispatch the Black Knights.
Brendan McInerney was a perfect 4-for-4 with three runs scored, Lucas Follett had three hits and drove in four runs, Nick McCullough also had three hits, while Mackay Hotaling drove in three runs and Colby Griffin knocked in two.
The Tornado bullpen pitched four scoreless innings to hold Windsor in check. Nate Winans pitched two scoreless innings of relief for his first varsity win, and Justin Lindenthaler finished with two scoreless frames.
“The bullpen did another great job for us, and the best statistic is that we made no errors for the first time this season,” said Norwich coach John Martinson. “It was important for us to play good defense so that we can gain some confidence.”
