Note – ECC is visiting team 

Current inning: Final

Score: Devon Prep 2, ECC 1

Notes: Devon Prep wins state title on a Steal of third and an error on the third baseman for failing to catch the throw … ECC had runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out in 9th but a strikeout and a pickoff/cs ends the inning … This is 5th PIAA baseball title game (Regardless of class) to go to 9 innings  and only 2nd in lowest classification (1989 Old Forge beat Bellwood-Antis 1-0 in 9 inn) Childs sets Devon down 1-2-3 in 8th facing top of order. Going on to the 9th … Childs in in B8 for ECC … Schlimm went 7IP, 1 Hit, 1 R, 11 KS, 3 BB, 2 HB … This is 1st extra inning Class A title game in PIAA history. Class A strated in 1999 …  Devon gets runner to 3rd on walk, SB and WP with 2 outs in B7th but Schlimm gets 11th K of game to end threat … ECC down in order in top of 7th despite 12 pitch AB from Stauffer … Devon ties the game at 1 despite not getting a hit in the 6th … a walk, two hit batters loaded the bases and then Sean Phelan hits a blooper that lands (ECC got runner out at third on fielder’s choice) … ECC had runners on 1st and 2nd with 1 out in T6th but Schlimm grounds into a 1-5-3 inning-ending double play. Pitching dual continues … Schlimm has now retired 11 straight after another 1-2-3 inning in 5th … Great diving catch by Devon Prep’s CF Chris Bauers ends T5th. ECC leaves runner at 1st … Schlimm has now retired 8 in a row after a 1-2-3 4th … ECC scores first when Wortman is hit by a pitch steals 2nd, goes to 3rd on a groundout and scores on an infield single by Jonathan Dippold … After a 1-2-3 B3 ECC pitching now has thrown 17 2/3 straight innings of scoreless ball going back to 5th inning of Round 1 game with Sewickley Academy … ECC put runners on 1st & 3rd with two outs in T3 after Vincent Jacob’s 2nd hit of the game but Pat Rohr got Brad Dippold to ground out to SS to end the threat …  Devon Prep strands a runner at third in B2 as Brandon Schlimm strikes out of the side while walking one (Devon had a pair of SB and now has 3 in the game) … ECC 2nd baseman Jonathan Dippold made a diving catch in shallow centerfield to end the bottom of the first. If the ball had gotten down it would have scored Dominic Hardaway from 2nd base … ECC appeared to take 1-0 lead in Top of 1st when Ivan Wortman hit an apperant sacrfice fly to score Vincent Jacob, who had doubled off the right-field wall to lead off. But on appeal at third it was determined Jacob left early creating an inning-ending double play.
