That is with the exception of possibly Salem, which has four more innings to play vs. Fort Plain today in a continued game. The Generals currently trail 1-0 in the top of the fourth.
Before we go further, in case you didn't see my retweets earlier, WE HAVE SOME TIME SWITCHES! Spa Catholic/Johnstown is now at 1 p.m. at Gloversville's Husky Field on Saturday, while Lake George/Greenwich is now at 4 p.m. at Shuttleworth Park. Junior proms, in both cases.
My story pretty much covered everything I want to say about Lake George. Good performance from the Warriors. Good effort from Granville's Ethan Patch, too, with 9 strikeouts in the loss.
Greenwich's Christian O'Brien really got the Witches out of a pickle with an impressive 4-strikeout, 2-inning save. As usual, they hit the ball well. I'm not sure who either Greenwich or Lake George will start on the mound, but something tells me one of the keys to the game for the Warriors has to be pitching and defense, or else.
Over in Class D, Fort Ann and Whitehall had no problems in advancing. I admit I got fooled by the Cardinals. I figured they would have Garrett Bailey go in the semis and Tyler Mattison in the final, but Bailey started and only went part of the game, so he's got some pitches left for Saturday if needed. Mattison will get the start.
In Class B, Spa Catholic continues to rip the ball, and looky over there on the other half of the bracket: Voorheesville and Albany Academy. Oh, Colonial Council baseball, you never disappoint. I guess the Hudson and Ichabod Crane fans can swallow their indignation over their seeding.
In Class A, that had to be a gut-wrenching loss for Queensbury, giving up 7 runs in the top of the seventh. It was a solid season for the Spartans, but this will forever make them wonder, "what if?"
