Elizabeth Forward stayed in a three-way tie for second place in the Section 4-AAA baseball playoff race with a 4-3 victory over Ringgold.

Mark Adams threw a complete game and struck out eight to keep the Rams at bay, while Jake Terrick singled three times to spark the Warriors' offensive attack.

Elizabeth Forward (12-5, 6-4) has two section games remaining, including a showdown with Thomas Jefferson on Friday.

Thomas Jefferson 12, Carrick 2 (5 inn.) — Joe McHughy doubled and tripled, Colton Booher had three singles, and the Jaguars kept pace with the rest of the contenders in the race for the final two playoff spots out of Section 4-AAA.

Serra Catholic 15, Clairton 0 (3 inn.) — Brandon Coddington pitched a no-hitter and had three hits, as Serra Catholic (14-1, 9-0) continued its dominance in section play.
