Knoch's baseball team knows it doesn't have to be flashy to be successful.

The Knights plodded their way back to .500, posting their second straight shutout, 3-0, over Valley on Wednesday at Pullman Park in Butler.

Gavin Miller pitched a complete game with seven strikeouts, and Chase Voltz singled three times for the Knights (3-3, 0-2) in the Section 5-AAA win.

Taylor Sharer doubled and made a diving catch to end the game for Knoch.

Valley (1-4, 0-2) managed four hits against Miller.

Hampton 10, Kittanning 0 (5 inn.) — Winning pitcher Ben Vey allowed two hits and two walks with seven strikeouts in five scoreless innings to lead Hampton (6-1, 2-0) to a Section 5-AAA win over Kittanning (1-3, 0-2).

Zack Staszak doubled and Steve Dayton tripled for Hampton.

Mars 11, Highlands 1 — Matt Parrish held Highlands (1-3,0-2) to four hits as Mars (5-3, 2-0) picked up a Section 5-AAA win. Mars had 12 hits, three of them from Ben Erdhal.

Kiski Area 7, Albert Gallatin 3 — Jack Emmerling's complete-game victory helped lead Kiski Area (1-3, 0-3) over Albert Gallatin (1-5, 1-4) in Section 2-AAAA play.

Emmerling had seven strikeouts and was 2 for 2 with two RBI, and teammate Troy Glendenning doubled and stole two bases for the Cavaliers, who have won two in a row.

Valley 12, West Shamokin 4 — Blaise Dawson provided plenty of offense for Valley in a Section 3-AA win over West Shamokin.

Dawson singled twice, doubled, scored twice and drove in another three runs for Valley (2-3, 2-3).

Leah Baum doubled for West Shamokin (2-4, 2-4).

Burrell-Deer Lakes postponed — A battle of unbeatens will have to wait after Burrell (5-0, 5-0) and No. 1 Deer Lakes (6-0, 5-0) had their Section 3-AA game in West Deer postponed because of lightning.

The game, which had been moved from April 2 because of poor weather conditions, will be played at 4 p.m. Monday.

A second Burrell-Deer Lakes contest is set for 7 p.m. next Thursday at Burrell's Bon Air Elementary School.
