Bloomingdale 4, #1 Sickles 2

An RBI double from Izzy Perez and an RBI single from Cooper Hinson erased an early Sickles lead in the second inning, and RBI singles from Vincent Dinzeo and Pierce Collins (2-for-4) salted away a big win on the road for the Bulls. Junior Hayden Porter worked five innings on the mound, striking out one and allowing two hits to earn the win, and Dawson Rankin recorded his third save with two hitless innings and a strikeout. Despite a 1-2 week from the Gryphons, junior Jaden Nazar stayed hot, running his hit-streak to seven games, going 3-for-3 with a double and run scored (7-for-8 on the week), and Michael Bynum and Emilio Salgado singled in runs in the first inning. Brandon Gonzales pitched four innings of relief for Sickles, allowing one run on two hits and struck out seven.

Blake 5, Freedom 2

Cade Hoffman struck out six for the Patriots in his five innings of relief, allowing two runs on eight hits.
