Class 7A-District 8

Hillsborough 6, Leto 1
After three scoreless innings, Hillsborough bats finally got going as the Terriers advanced to Friday’s district final defeating Leto, 6-1. Nick Romano had an RBI double, and Antonio Jenkins had an RBI for Hillsborough (19-4), now winners of 14-straight. Bryce Blanco and Jarrod Cande each had two hits for the Terriers, and Patrick Puentes earned the win on the mound with four innings pitched.
King 4, Gaither 1
King got a pair of runs in the fourth inning and added another two runs in the seventh to advance to Friday’s district final against Hillsborough, and eliminate last season’s Class 7A state champions Gaither. Justice Thompson singled to lead off the fourth and eventually scored on a wild pitch and the Lions added the deciding run on an error later in the frame. Gaither got one back in the sixth as Jose Cadenas singled and was driven in on an AJ Drisdom groundout. Thompson added a two-run double in the top of the seventh for King to put the game out of reach. Lions starting pitcher Brian Lee worked a complete-game to earn the win allowing one run, with nine strikeouts.
