9s Mid-Atlantic Regional: Thursday's re-cap

It was a full day of action at the Spring Baseball Complex in Troy, New York as the 9-year-old Cal Ripken Baseball Mid-Atlantic Regional got into full swing with eight contests on two fields.

The weather was warm and cooperative, the baseball top-notch, but what got the most oohs and ahhs on my Facebook page was not my workload, but my report on the concession stand's offering of eggplant parm, chicken parm along with the huge, powdered sugar coated confection, fried dough.

But it's about the kids and not the food this weekend. Here's a look at some of the contests:

Warrington 5, North Tonawanda 2
A pitcher's duel through three innings ended after Warrington scored four runs in the fifth-inning on just two hits.
The Souteast Pennsylvania champion, Warrington duo of Sam Thompson and Nick Ambolino combined for nine strikeouts while the Western New York North Tonawanda pair, Charles Mack and Zack Litwinski, combined for 12 strikeouts.

Spring 6, Montgomery 4
It wasn't the prettiest game that the 2009 AABC 9-year-old World Series champions had, but managed to put up five runs and hold off a three-run rally by the Southern New Jersey champions to come away with an opening win.
Here's the story in the Troy Record newspaper.

Audubon 5, Clifton Park 4
Northwest Pennsylvania champion Audubon was paced by Eli Bokunewicz's 2-for-2 day with a run scored along and built a 5-1 lead before Eastern New York State champion Clifton Park rallied for three runs in its final at-bats, scoring three runs on three hits and an error, leaving the bases loaded to end the contest.
Here's the story in the Saratogian newspaper.

Glen Cove Comanches 5, Bear 3
After a 1-1 tie through one, Delaware champion Bear took a 3-2 lead in the top of the fourth before Metro New York champion, Glen Cove, scored two runs in the bottom half on its way to a 5-3 win.
Michael Capobianco hit a one out double and Thomas Paulich followed with a single. They were both plated on Chris Capobianco's two RBI double to pull ahead in the fourth.

North Tonawanda 7, GVAA Wildcats 2
North Tonawanda rallied in the bottom of the first inning and tacked on a pair of runs in the third and three more in the fifth.
Gavin Lynch, Dan Mikolajczak were singled home by Andrew Lynch with an RBI single in the fifth. He was knocked in by Nate Murdie's RBI single.

Warrington 6, Bear 3 (7 innings)
The contest was tied through three innings before the Southeast Pennsylvania champion, Warrington, plated three runs in the top of the seventh.
With one out, Andrew Funk singled and Matt Cunningham doubled before Michael DelFame walked. Andrew Seale followed with a two-run RBI single.

Audubon 1, Montgomery 0
Mason Lasage led off the bottom of the sixth with a walk for Northwest Pennsylvania champion Audubon. Jared Carboy and Mark Engleman followed with free passes. Ian Stewart came through with a one-out sacrifice fly to center field for the game winner.

East Brunswick 18, Spring 4 (4 innings)
The final contest of the game provided the most fireworks as the Northern New Jersey champion, East Brunswick, and last year's 8-year-old Mid-Atlantic Regional champions pounded the host in a four-inning mercy rule shortened contest.
