High School Baseball sectional playoffs: May 13, 2019

Rain postponed much of the playoff baseball action on Monday, except for a pair of sectional title games.

The weather caused some problems at the Class A Region 3, Section 2 championship between Greater Beckley and Greenbrier West.

The Crusaders grabbed a 1-0 lead on a throwing error before a rain delay forced the teams off the field. When they returned about 20 minutes later, the Cavaliers’ Evan McDade nearly worked out of a bases-loaded jam with a pair of strikeouts.

However, Greater Beckley would get six in the inning, en route to a 10-0 victory and a sectional title. They advance to the Class A Region 3 Final.

 

In Oak Hill, Wyoming East won yet another elimination game, 7-2 over the Red Devils. Four runs in the fifth inning were enough to seal the victory. The two teams will play in a winner-take-all contest on Tuesday at 6:30 p.m. for the Class AA Region 3, Section 1 crown.
