Austyn Cummings had a two-run home run in the first inning, and teammate Michael Bonderek added a two-run single and a nice catch in centerfield, in American Legion's Boys Majors win on Wednesday.
Aidan Morrison had six strikeouts, and five assists from the mound, to total 11 of 12 outs in a complete game win for Cornerstone in Boys Majors. Morrison was 2-for-3 with a triple, and Ryan Madigan and Dylan Burt two hits each in the win. Alex Anderson threw to Paul Rogers at second to gun a baserunner out trying to stretch a hit into a double.
In possibly the game of the night, Jackson Knupp threw a complete-game shutout, striking out 10 with just three hits and one walk in Inscale Architects' Boys Majors win. He also had the game-winning hit. Nick Hussey battled hard, striking out nine himself for United.
On defense, Jimmy Kramer made three great plays at the hot corner for United to keep the game scoreless. The Architects' defense saved the game in the fourth inning when Ryan Arnold tracked down a fly ball up the right field line from his second base position to record the first out. Then with two on and two out, Lance Baldensperger made a diving catch at shortstop to rob a batter of a sure two-run single.
Jordan Sitler struck out 10 batters in four innings in Animalistics Outdoors' Girls Minors win. Alexis Nyquist and Taylor Childress had hits and scored three times each for the Animals, and Kelsey Stuart had a ringing base hit and scored twice in the win. Marissa Grubbs scored twice for Inscale Architects, and Andrea Sveda and Addie Werth had hits.
Kayla Hecei and Mallorie Baumgrotz had three hits each, including a triple each, in Anderson Construction's Girls Minors win. Madison Wallin and Delaney Chase doubled for Whirley.
