CLASS AAAA FINAL
At Penn State
La Salle 4, Conestoga 2 (8 inn.): Working on three days' rest, Dominic Cuoci became eligible to earn the win when Brian Buckley lined a two-run single to center in the visiting eighth. John Scheffey posted the save with a 1-2-3 bottom half. The state title was the Explorers' second in three years and, as in 2012, they rebounded after falling short for Catholic League honors. Buckley finished 2-for-3 with a walk and two RBI and twice made strong plays at first base to prevent throwing errors. Cuoci (single) and Jimmy Herron (sac fly) had the Explorers' earlier RBI. Cuoci allowed eight hits (three did not leave the infield) and two walks (one intentional) while striking out two.
At Neumann University, in Aston
La Salle 3, Spring-Ford 0: Dominic Cuoci fired a two-hitter with nine strikeouts and notched the game-winning RBI with a squib infield single in the sixth. Brian Buckley and Nick Dermo added authoritative RBI singles in that same frame. Cuoci showed his brass in the second inning after Shane Emrich thumped a leadoff triple. He whiffed the next three batters.
At Northern York High, in Dillsburg
Loyalsock 4, Neumann-Goretti 3: Poor throws on rundowns enabled Loyalsock to leave behind a 2-2 tie with one run apiece in the fifth and sixth. In the seventh, with two away and two strikes, recent Boston Red Sox draftee (fifth round) Josh Ockimey sent a scorcher down the leftfield line for an RBI double. Another runner tried to score from first, but was tagged out by the catcher in a short rundown between third and home. Reliever Charlie Jerla allowed an unearned run in the sixth; it was the only run (of any kind) scored against him in 23 postseason innings. Ockimey also had a sac fly and milked two walks.
(Both Games Monday, June 9)

AAAA: Spring-Ford (1-4) vs. La Salle (12-1), at Neumann University, in Aston, 4
At Parkland High, in Allentown
La Salle 3, Hazleton 1: This one featured an all-time crazy ending. With two away and the bases loaded in the home seventh, Robert John hit a grounder toward shortstop AJ Grezeszak. It never got to him. The ball hit the baserunner, ending the game. John Scheffey went the distance while RBI went to Dominic Cuoci (groundout in first), Nick Dermo and Brian Buckley (back-to-back walks in fifth). Brad Schneider and Jimmy Herron halved four hits. This rare night game started at 7:11.
At Parkland High, in Allentown
Neumann-Goretti 1, Bloomsburg 0: Ethan "E" Pritchett spun a two-hitter with nine punchouts as the Saints won by shutout for the fifth time in 10 postseason contests; the MLB record is four by the Giants in 1905, 2010 and '12 and the Yankees in '98. The run scored in the third thanks to singles by Brian Verratti and Vinny Vaccone, a passed ball and a wild pitch.

La Salle 6, Boyertown 3: Though Dominic Cuoci allowed 10 hits, six never left the infield. Nick Dermo (first inning, single), Jimmy Herron (fourth, single) and Cuoci (fourth, double to base of fence in right) lashed hits worth two RBI apiece.
At Neumann University
Methacton 4, Washington 0: The Eagles were disheartened by the son of a former Pub star. Kyle Lowery, whose dad, Ed, was a first team All-City infielder for Roxborough in '78 (and reached AAA in the minors), broke a scoreless tie with a two-run, fifth-inning double. Washington rapped five hits, and Eddie Tingle's double was the best.
At La Salle High
Northeastern 3, Wood 1: Matt Funk scored the Vikings' only run on a fielder's choice off Erik Bowren's bat. Joe Lancellotti started the seventh with a double, but the momentum was not sustained.
At Stump Stadium, in Pine Grove
Tamaqua 12, Franklin Towne 2 (6 inn.): For Towne, Brian Bradley lofted a sac fly to score Phil Gilchrist and Matt Schlernitzauer tallied on the back end of a double steal.
At La Salle High
Neumann-Goretti 5, Berks Catholic 3: Charlie Jerla, in relief, pitched shutout ball (three hits) over the final six innings as the Saints overcame an early scare. Pat Doudican was touched for three unearned runs (no hits) in the first and was replaced by Jerla after walking the leadoff batter in the second. Tommy Nardini stroked a two-run single in the fourth as a three-spot reversed a 3-2 deficit.
At Ashburn Field
Schuylkill Haven 12, Masterman 2 (5 inn.): The Blue Dragons' two runs scored on an infield error. Liam Shanahan, a freshman lefty, began the game at shortstop, then pitched the last two innings, allowing no earned runs.

(Three Games at Ashburn Field)
La Salle 16, Washington 1 (5 inn.): Ryan Coonahan's two-run single was the most productive of six hits in the Explorers' 11-run second. There were also five walks and a plunking. Jimmy Herron finished 2-for-2 with a walk, sacrifice fly and two RBI. Joe Scheffey (three innings) and Joe "Cardinal" Krol shared the pitching. In GW's fourth, Ishmael Bracy singled, Scott Siley doubled and Eddie Tingle lofted a sac fly to center.
Wood 8, Franklin Towne 0: Soph righthander Anthony Russo fired a one-hitter (Ray Lopez' groundball single to center to lead off the sixth) with 14 strikeouts and one walk (game's next-to-last batter) and Erik Bowren went 3-for-4 with a double, three-run homer (first inning) and four RBI. Russo just missed tying the all-time CT record for whiffs in a seven-inning outing; future major leaguer George Riley notched 15 for Southern in 1974 vs. Ryan.
Neumann-Goretti 12, Phila. Academy 1 (5 inn.): Josh Ockimey began his week by visiting Florida to work out for the Marlins. He capped it by crushing a 3-0 fastball roughly 370 feet to right-center for the first grand slam in the 41-year history of City Titles (1945-79, 2009-14). In all, he went 3-for-4 with five RBI. Bay To collected two apiece of hits/walks and scored thrice. Vinny Vaccone went 3-for-3 with a triple, one RBI and three runs scored. Gino Tripodi bagged the win in relief. For PA, Eric Heisler doubled and scored.
At Richie Ashburn Field
Washington 3, Franklin Towne 2: Roger Hanson pitched a six-hitter with nine strikeouts and Ishmael Bracy posted two RBI as the Eagles won their first championship since 1995 in their initial title-game appearance since '99. In the previous 14 seasons, they'd lost nine times in semis, four times in quarterfinals and once in the round of 16 (2000 to Saul, a huge underdog). Bracy and losing pitcher Steve Callahan traded sac flies in the first. Bracy (single) and Scott Siley (triple) stroked RBI hits in the third and FT's Zack Beltran got a run home in the bottom half by drawing the last of three consecutive walks. In the sixth, after recording two looking Ks, Hanson allowed three consecutive singles before ending the threat with another whiff; a doubleplay had ended the third. The Coyotes were retired in order in the seventh. The title was the Eagles' 10th, and their sixth as the visiting team. The next day in school, following through on a promise he'd made to Siley, coach Ken Geiser allowed the Eagles to give him a mohawk.
CATHOLIC LEAGUE CHAMPIONSHIP ROUND, PART II
(At La Salle High)
Neumann-Goretti 11, Roman 0 (5 inn.): Entering what turned out to be a two-game championship series, Roman had hoped to become the first school in CL major-sports history to storm to a title after finishing below .500 (7-8 in Red) during the regular season. Instead, N-G (6-1; 12-2 regular season in Blue) became the first CL school to capture as many as six playoff wins in a major sport (over 262 seasons between football/basketball/baseball). Charlie Jerla pitched a four-hitter with eight strikeouts to complete a perfect playoff stint (no runs of any kind over 16 innings). He also broke a scoreless tie with a two-run single in a four-run third. Brian Verratti and Pat Doudican posted RBI singles in a seven-run fourth. Mike Opiela and Conor Smith doubled for Roman. The site was quickly switched to La Salle High after Widener informed CL brass that its field was unplayable just three hours prior to gametime.

Franklin Towne 10, Phila. Academy 2: Phil Gilchrist stroked a two-run single in four-run fourth as the Coyotes upped their lead to 7-2. Zack Beltran and Matt Schlernitzauer collected two hits apiece, as did PA's Anthony Pickens and Tim Zink. Steve Callahan went five innings for the win.

Neumann-Goretti 11, Roman 1 (5 inn): Pat Doudican fashioned a four-hitter with eight strikeouts and tied the CL playoff record for RBI with six thanks to a two-run double in the third, then two-run singles in the fourth and fifth. Bay To added two hits, one RBI. Mike Opiela had an RBI single for Roman, which missed out on a chance to become the first team in major-sports CL history to win a championship after finishing below .500 (7-8) in league play.

(At Immaculata Univ.)
Roman 6, O'Hara 5 (9 inn.): Roman claimed its third playoff win as the lower seed by scoring five unearned runs over the last four innings (three in sixth, one apiece in eighth and ninth).

MaST 7, Esperanza 0: Forfeit. A recent Prep Charter-Esperanza regular season game ended with a benches-clearing episode. The umps gave each squad a "team forfeit," meaning they'd have to forfeit their next game. PC had one game remaining prior to the start of the playoffs and, after forfeiting that one, was allowed to participate in today's playoffs. Esperanza did not have another pre-playoff game remaining and, thus, lost this one by forfeit. MaST competes in a suburban league, but is inside the city limits and competes in the Pub playoffs.

Central 9, Northeast 0: Frosh Danny Holdsman (five innings) and Louis Lobron teamed for a three-hitter while Kyle Rosenberg turned a double and triple into three RBI.
Olney 6, Lincoln 5: The Trojans won it with two in the visiting seventh. Ray Cedano doubled home the tying run and his courtesy runner, Ricky Alicea, scored on a steal/overthrow combo. Jamuel Cruz went 3-for-4. Julio Sierra earned the W.

O'Hara 5, Neumann-Goretti 2: At N-G, in the third inning, Nolan Cummings belted the Lions' first grand slam of the year to provide a 5-0 lead.
