That's because EF sent 19 batters to the plate and scored 14 runs to cap a 15-0 three-inning win.

The Warriors (5-3, 2-1) got two singles, a triple and six RBI from Ryan Wardropper, who hit a bases-loaded triple and then scored on an error in the big inning.

Steve Welsh had a double and solo home run for EF, while teammates Jake Terrick and Will Scott each had two singles.

Luke Padezan had a no-hitter in the abbreviated contest as the Rams (3-2, 0-2) dropped their second game in as many days.

Frazier 11, Clairton 1

The Commodores (2-5, 1-1) ended a five-game losing streak in impressive fashion as Roger Cline and Dylan Celaschi combined to pitch a one-hitter.

Cline also had a double and single for Frazier, as did teammate Hunter Clay. Darin Ohler added a double for the winners, who scored four runs in the first inning and four again in the sixth.

The Lady Cougars (4-2) dropped their second straight contest as Bentworth (4-6) scored four unearned runs in the non-section game.

The winners scored four runs in the sixth inning to overcome a 3-2 deficit.
