STATE PLAYOFFS, FINAL
At Penn State
Neumann-Goretti 7, Bishop McCort 4: A five-spot in the first inning turned out to be sufficient as the Saints beat the same opponent for a second consecutive state championship and became the first school in PIAA history to seize crowns in both basketball and baseball in back-to-back school years. Lefty Phil Sanborn, working on three days' rest, pitched the first 4.1 innings and soph Joe Messina went the rest of the way to earn the save. McCort scored once in the seventh and had the bases loaded with two away when Messina humped up for a three-pitch strikeout; the Crushers stranded 13 runners in all. Eric Nardini and Sanborn lined RBI singles in the first after Brian Reynolds drew a walk to plate the first run. A throwing error off Nardini's single allowed two more runs to score. Two fifth-inning runs were notched thanks to wild pitches. Sanborn and Jared Healey (double) halved four hits.

CATHOLIC LEAGUE PLAYOFF
At Immaculata University
Neumann-Goretti 6, Wood 4: Under first-year coach Mike "Zoom" Zolk Jr., the Saints won their second consecutive championship, third in four years, fifth in seven years and sixth in nine years (under four coaches). Also, this title was the 10th for N-G and its predecessors, tying the league mark of now-closed North Catholic. Zoom's father, Mike, was the boss in '12, one year after Zoom started at second base for a title squad. This season began with two losses in league play and this game did not start well as Wood, with help from two errors, posted a three-spot in the top of the first. Again, N-G bounced back, scoring thrice in the bottom half thanks mostly to Brian Reynolds' two-run single. It claimed the lead for good, at 5-4, in the third on two wild pitches that followed a lengthy delay; catcher John "J.R." Gifford was struck in the neck by a bouncing pitch and had to be taken to nearby Paoli Hospital. Senior lefty Phil Sanborn, a first-year varsity pitcher, wound up going the distance, allowing six hits and fanning seven. Two Ks were racked up in the sixth after the Vikings loaded the bases with one away. Jared Healey went 3-for-3 with a double and scored twice. For Wood, Antonio Rossillo posted two hits, including a double, and two RBI.
