Sectional baseball highlights

Hamilton finishes off St. Xavier 9-8

        Pinch runner Brian Newton scored on a two-out single by Pat Joos in the seventh inning, giving the third-ranked Big Blue the upset over the No.1 Bombers.

        Hamilton took advantage of the 16-hour layoff after the game was suspended Friday at 8-8 after six innings.

        After losing pitcher Brian Craft struck out Hamilton's Matt Wagers, Dustin Pearson hit a single. After another strikeout, Cody Worressell drew a walk, setting the stage for Joos, the No.9 batter in the lineup, to deliver the game-winner.

        St.Xavier's Keith Jackson reached base on a single with one out, but Big Blue ace Steve Polen retired Zach Ellis and John Slone to end the threat.

        Hamilton meets the winner of the Vandalia Butler/Troy game on Saturday (11 a.m.) at Midland Field.
