Wadsworth 14, Copley 4

The Grizzlies pounded out 22 hits and used three big innings to cruise to a Barberton Division I sectional title at home on Wednesday night.

Shelby Mayes slapped two singles and a double, scoring three runs and driving in four to lead the Wadsworth onslaught.

Also recording multiple RBI were Jessi Voitko with three and Maddie Long and Corynn Rench with two apiece.

Shortstop Amanda Lillis was the bright spot for Copley, singling twice and drilling a home run in a 3-for-3 effort. She drove in two runs and scored one herself.

 

CVCA 7, Cuyahoga Falls 6

A seven-run second inning was just enough for the Royals to escape an upset attempt by the host Black Tigers on Wednesday.

CVCA (12-12) smacked 15 hits and 12 of them were singles that kept a marathon inning alive.

Seven players each scored one run for the Royals and only Jackie Brighton had two RBI. Four other Royals had one RBI, and Jackie Budrevich (5-2) got the win in the circle.

Cuyahoga Falls (4-14) got a run-scoring triple from Anna Bobbitt and a one-run double from Kylee Phillips.

Woodridge 7, Cloverleaf 6

After the Colts scored two runs in the top of the seventh to take a one-run lead, the Bulldogs answered with two in the bottom of the inning for a walk-off Portage Trail Conference victory.

Andrew Mekeal delivered the game-winning heroics with his second single of the game.

Jarrett Martin and Kyle Schneider both singled and doubled, driving in two runs and scoring twice for the Bulldogs (15-6, 12-2).

Woodridge reliever Max Asher came on in the sixth and blew the save, but got a win after Mekeal's clutch single completed the seventh-inning comeback.
