Baseball/Softball Playoff Picture

Softball’s regular season ended Wednesday with playoff brackets due out mid-afternoon Thursday. Baseball’s final games are on Thursday’s schedule with the playoff pairings set to be revealed late Friday.

Ringgold’s baseball team stayed alive for a Class 4A berth with a shutout win at Uniontown. Thursday afternoon, the Rams host the Raiders needing a win to clinch a spot in the playoffs.  You can hear that game, starting at 3:50 pm on WJPA-AM (1450) or Listen Here! Wash High’s post-season baseball hopes ended with a home loss to Frazier. Though not definite, it appears McGuffey’s softball playoff chase ended with a loss at Mt. Pleasant. California lost to Charleroi, ending the Trojans’ playoff dreams.

Pirates Lose To The Reds

PITTSBURGH (AP) – Jesse Winker and Eugenio Suarez combined to drive in four runs in the 10th inning as Cincinnati’s bullpen threw 5 1/3 hitless innings, and the Reds beat the Pittsburgh Pirates 5-1. Winker singled off reliever Duane Underwood Jr. (1-2) to lead off the 10th, scoring designated runner Nick Senzel. Nick Castellanos singled and Mike Moustakas walked ahead of Suarez, who drove a pitch into the left-center gap for a three-run double. Lucas Sims worked two perfect innings with four strikeouts to earn the win. The Cincinnati bullpen struck out nine without allowing a hit in relief of Sonny Gray.

Tatis Jr. Tests Positive For COVID-19

Padres shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. has tested positive for COVID-19 and was put on the injured list, along with two teammates. Tatis leads the Padres with nine homers and 23 runs. Utilitymen Jurickson Profar and Jorge Mateo were added to San Diego’s injured list for contact tracing protocols.
