Andrew Hallett pitched a complete game as Ridley upset Marple Newtown, 3-2, in Central League baseball action Monday.
Hallett allowed no walks and struck out four while scattering eight hits.
Ryan Tait and James Becker had two hits apiece for Ridley (2-7), which scored a run in the first and two more in the second to take an early 3-0 advantage.
MN chipped away with a run in a sixth in the seventh, but it was too little, too late.
Alden Mathes collected three hits in the loss. Luke Cantwell, Cameron Mathes and Cory Woodcock each had a double for Marple (5-4).
Strath Haven 5, Haverford 2 >> Evan Atsaves tripled, drove in a pair of runs and scored twice as the Panthers erupted for three seventh-inning runs to break the tie.
Nick DeFeo was a hard-luck loser on the bump for the Fords as he struck out nine and only allowed one earned run in six innings of work.
Lower Merion 3, Springfield 1 >> Jake Stoller drove in a pair of runs for the Aces.
Conestoga 12, Penncrest 4 >> Dylan Lomas supplied the bulk of the Lions’ offense by bashing a three-run dinger.
Harriton 11, Garnet Valley 1 >> The Rams shot out of the gates with a seven-run first inning and never looked back, despite an RBI from Dominic Bertone and doubles from Liam Bendo and Steve Caruso. The loss was Garnet Valley’s first of 2017.
In the Ches-Mont League:
Sun Valley 3, Coatesville 2 >> Dom Valente’s brains on the basepaths paid off in spades for Sun Valley.
With the Vanguards down two runs with the bases loaded in the bottom of the sixth, Valente took a big lead at first base. The Red Raiders inexplicably tried to pick him off, and he stayed in a rundown long enough for two runs to score to tie the game.
One inning later, Evan Fooks roped a walk-off single to bring home Ryan Duplicki to cement the Sun Valley (2-9, 2-9 Ches-Mont League) win.
In the Catholic League:
Archbishop Carroll 6, Lansdale Catholic 2 >> Dan Crossan smashed a three-run triple as part of a four-run second inning, which proved to be all the offense that Tyler Kehoe needed to toss an eight-strikeout complete game.
Rich Melito smoked a two-run double in the sixth inning for insurance. Cole Chesnet posted a 3-for-4 day at the plate.
Bonner & Prendergast 17, Bishop McDevitt 1 >> The Friars’ bats came alive as Matt Headley went 4-for-4, Tim Dougherty and Dom Dellabarba each drove in three runs and Matt Shepherd brought home a pair of runs in an easy win.
Brian O’Neill also cracked a double for the Friars (4-7, 1-6), who earned their first PCL win of the season.
Archbishop Wood 4, Cardinal O’Hara 3 >> Jimmy White collected two hits and drove in a run for the Lions (5-7, 3-4), with Isaiah Hammond suffering the loss in relief.
