Class AA- (2) Penfield 6, (4) Hilton 0
Gage Ziehl pitched a one-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts as Penfield dominated Hilton en route to the Class AA championship.
After scoring their first run in the first inning on an error, Brady Ventura made it 3-0 with a RBI single to center that scored two.
In the third, Nathan Sobko got two home on an RBI double over the center fielder’s glove to make it 5-0. The Patriots would get their final run of the game later that inning on a Peyton Pace bunt.
Not only did Ziehl pitch a gem on the mound, but he also got it done at the plate as well. In four plate appearances, he got on base four times with a hit, two walks, and a catcher’s interference.
