Steward School Moves On

Steward School scored four runs in the sixth inning and held on to defeat the defending VISAA D2 champion Atlantic shores by a final tally of 4-3.

The D2 semi-final matchup was a classic pitchers duel as starting pitchers Julian Wolz of Steward School and Kyle Valentine of Atlantic Shores, were hitting their spots. Both teams combined for only six hits through five innings. Wolz finished with four strikeouts while Valentine recorded seven.

The game remained scoreless until the bottom of the sixth inning when a double by Nic Enright keyed the 4-run inning. Catcher Dan McCarthy followed with a bunt single and sophomore Theron Powell plated both baserunners with a double to right field. powell finished 2 of 3 from the plate. A RBI single by Jay Charity gave the Spartans a 3-0 lead. Charity would score the final Steward School run on a single by leadoff hitter Craig McLane.

Wolz took the mound with a 4-run cushion in the seventh but as Nic Enright's mom correctly concluded, Wolz had lost some velocity on his pitches. He surrendered three straight hits to start the inning including two doubles to Casey Turner and Noah Babcock that cut the Spartans lead to 4-1. Enright relieved Wolz with two on and no out but he forced two ground ball outs to Mitchell Morrell and Davis Watson. Both baserunners scored on the play reduce the lead to 4-3. Enright struckout Jacob Flora to end the game.

Steward School will face The miller School for the VISAA D2 Championship.
