MAR - Game 12: Sacred Heart 4, Warrington 2

CLIFTON PARK - Southern New Jersey champion, Sacred Heart, took an early 3-0 lead in the third inning of Saturday's pool play contest against the Southeast Pennsylvania champion, Warrington and held off for its third win of the 11-year-old Cal Ripken Baseball 46/60 Mid-Atlantic Regional at the Clifton Common Baseball Complex in Clifton Park, NY.

A sacrifice fly by Tim Zeng scored Connor Fernholz and a single up the middle scored Josh Morgan in the third. Ryan Voelker sent a fly ball to left, scoring Drew Tumbelty for the 3-0 lead.

Warrington cut into the lead in the third when Chris Truck reached on an infield single and came around to score on Michael Kuypers' RBI double down the left field line, 3-1.

Steven Tractenberg led off the fourth with a walk, moved over on a Chad Haegle sac bunt followed by a wild pitch and scored on a Bryan Meyers ground out to second, 3-2.

Warrington threatened in the fifth, stranding Chris Trunk on third and Chris Dalfarra on second with only one out. The next batter popped out to the pitcher for the second out of the inning and the subsequent batter struck out.

Sacred Heart tacked on a run in the top of the sixth by Vinnie Maiorino who led off with a walk. He moved over on Jack Pellock's single, Josh Morgan's fielder's choice and scored on Drew Tumbelty's grounder to second.

With two outs in the bottom of the sixth, bad luck continued to follow Warrington when the squad became energized during it's own two-out rally. Bryan Meyers reached on a single to left field and Jeff Carter roped a double down the left field line, again putting runners in scoring position. Josh Brodie drilled a Sacred Heart offering as far as you can go and still stay in the ballpark, one-foot in front of the center field wall for the final out.

Warrington has a doubleheader Sunday, taking on Manalapan at 9 a.m. and closing out the pool play segment against Western New York State champion, Ithaca at 2:30 p.m.
