Chris Pedrak took advantage of a Waubonsie Valley error in the first inning with a two-run single to give pitcher Danny Spinuzza the confidence to pitch with a lead in the Mustangs 9-2 victory at the Class 4A Oswego Sectional semifinals.
Last fall, offensive linemen Luke Daley and Brendon Daley provided protection for quarterback Jake Kolbe, helping the Redhawks bring home a Class 8A state trophy. This spring, the brothers are protecting Bobby McMillen (.529, 7 HR, 28 RBI) by hitting behind him in the lineup.
With two outs, an 0-2 count and Naperville Central’s Mike Kolzow representing the winning run at third base, Jason Wegner lined a single to right field to give the Redhawks a walk-off, 2-1 victory over Naperville North.
Naperville North left-hander Ron Leonard tossed the four-hit shutout to allow the Huskies to keep their season alive with a 3-0 win over West Aurora in Monday morning’s Class 4A Metea Valley Regional quarterfinal.
Soon-to-be Webster University outfielder Chris Wick tossed his first career complete game in just his third pitching appearance this spring to lead Bartlett to a 5-1 Upstate Eight River victory over host Metea Valley on Thursday.
