NILES, OH- Score early on offense, limit opportunities on defense, and throw strikes. It’s that easy, right? On Wednesday, Niles McKinley stuck to that blueprint and advanced past the red-hot Quakers who rattled off 6 straight victories prior to the Sectional Finals. Salem fell behind early and couldn’t come back in a 4-0 loss to McKinley on Wednesday. McKinley scored on a single by Gallo, a single by Mays, and a fielder’s choice by Sudzina in the first inning.
In the first inning, McKinley got their offense started when Gallo singled on the first pitch of the at-bat, scoring one run.
Weida led the McKinley to victory on the pitcher’s mound. He surrendered zero runs on two hits over seven innings, striking out four.
