Seton Hill reliever Peyton Reesman, out of Mifflin County High School, didn’t make it into the game as the Griffins lost a winner’s bracket contest with Angelo State last night, 9-5, in the Division II college baseball tournament. Seton Hill now plays Wingate today at two in an elimination game.
Joel Embiid did what superstars are supposed to do, stepping up in the playoffs. The Sixers’ center scored a game-high 40 points, leading Philly to a 118-102 win over Atlanta. No one else had more than 22 in the game. The win evened that best-of-seven NBA Eastern Conference semifinal at a game apiece.
A five-run eighth turned a one-run deficit into a four-run lead as Atlanta knocked off the Phillies yesterday, 9-5. And, after Pirates’ third baseman Ke’Bryan Hayes was called out after not touching first base on his home run trot in the first, the Bucs lost to the Los Angeles Dodgers, 5-3.
And, in the minors, Williamsport beat State College, 6-3, Altoona nipped Akron, 7-6, and Richmond shut out Harrisburg, 4-0.
