First, North Hagerstown downed Urbana 4-1 and South Hagerstown beat Damascus 4-3 in 11 innings in Class 3A ball.
In Class 2A, Williamsport hits the road and beats Winters Mill 9-4, andin Class 1A Clear spring douses Boonsboro 11-0.
Thursday: South Hagerstown at Seneca Valley.
Friday: The South-Seneca winner plays at North.
Friday: Williamsport plays at Catoctin.
Friday: Clear Spring meets Allegany at McCurdy Field in Frederick.
These are all region finals with berths in the state tournament up for grab.
Thursday night in the South Atlantic League, two pitchers with hope for the future clashed at Delmarva.
Hagerstown’s Christian Binford, a Mercersburg Academy grad, went up against Frederick’s Branden Kline, a Virginia grad.
Neither came away with a decision as Lexington won 3-2 in 10 innings.
Binford went five innings, giving up six hits and two runs. He walked two and struck out six. He avoided the loss when Lexington scored in the ninth inning for a 2-2 tie.
Kline kept Delmarva in the game with a six-inning effort allowing just three hits and one run. He walked only one and struck out five.
Kline has already made one stop in Hagerstown while Binford is looking forward to May 23-26 when Lexington comes to town, hoping the rotation falls his way for a start during the visit.
