Eikenberry led Georgetown to a 12-2 win over Nanticoke in the second round of the tournament. He earned the win on the mound in relief allowing two hits, no runs with eight strikeouts and allowed just one walk in four innings of work. Eikenberry was 4 for 4 at the plate with four rbi’s and scored two runs.

“I was just sitting back expecting curveballs, but was getting a lot of inside fastballs,” Eikenberry said.

Maxton Marzullo had a pair of hits for Georgetown while John Klosiewicz, Warren Davis, Corbin Pettit and Marshall West each recorded a hit.

Tyler Hitchens had a homerun to lead off the second inning followed by a double by Jaxon Lathbury for Seaford. Gianni Bartucci and Miguel Sabino added hits for Seaford.

Georgetown will play Laurel on Sunday at 7:00pm at the Nanticoke Little League Park in Seaford. Seaford will travel to Lewes Little League Park on Saturday where they will face Woodbridge at 8:00pm.

In the second game of the doubleheader pitching was key again. Nathan Moore tossed a one hitter over six innings striking out seven while allowing one walk and a hit batter. Moore also helped break the game open with a two rbi double as Laurel defeated Lewes 5-0.

urveball,” Moore said.

Fielder’s choice scoring Omar Long followed by an rbi single by Zyon Holland to score Carter Bristow.

Lewes threatened in the third inning when Finn Gannon doubled to lead off the inning and Jameson Pease reached on a hit by pitch. One batter later Copeland fielded a sharply hit ground ball at third, Gannon was ruled out for leaving the basepath and Copeland then threw to first to end the inning.

“My third baseman had a double play when they had runners on first and second, that brought my heart rate up,” Moore said.

Pierre Louis had an rbi triple to lead off the three run sixth inning for Laurel. He later scored on Moore’s double.

With the win Laurel advances to the winner bracket final on Sunday versus Georgetown. First pitch is scheduled for 7:00pm. Lewes will face Milton on Saturday at the Lewes Little League park at 6:00pm.
