Cape/Georgetown 7, Laurel/Nanticoke 2: Starting pitcher Nick Cox struck out seven in six innings as Cape/Georgetown won the District III title on Wednesday night.

Cape/Georgetown will receive a first-round bye in next week’s state tournament, being hosted by Millsboro.

“Nick did a phenomenal job,” said manager Zac Crouch. “He got down in the counts and he came back when he was supposed to. He threw 99 pitches — which you’re allowed to in order to finish a batter — and he went six innings. You can’t ask anything else from him.”
Cape/Georgetown went 3-0 in the district tournament, defeating Nanticoke/Laurel 2-1 and Lower Sussex 11-1 to set-up Wednesday’s championship showdown.

“The kids really played well,” Crouch said. “It’s really special when you can bring a group of kids like this together and move forward in the tournament. All the hard work, getting through this game and coming out on top is special.”

Cape/Georgetown’s bats broke the game open in the third inning, when it plated four runs to jump out to a 4-0 lead.

Timmy Hitchcock and Josh Reinhold opened the inning with a hit-by-pitch and walk in back-to-back at-bats before Kye Wells drove Hitchcock in with an RBI single. Reinhold scored on a passed ball, while Wells and Nick Cox scored on groundouts in consecutive at-bats.

Brady Lee put Nanticoke/Laurel on the board in the bottom half of the third inning, scoring on an Ayden Bell fielder’s choice.

Wells (3-for-4) recorded a double in the fifth inning and came around to score on a Cox groundout to extend the lead.

A Vinny Dilorio RBI single in the sixth and a Luke Crouch groundout scoring Mike Jarrell in the seventh put the game out of reach for Cape/Georgetown.

Reinhold entered the game as pitcher in the bottom of the seventh and shut down the N-L batters on 17 pitches to close out the championship win.

“That was one good thing about the rainout last night, we had every single pitcher available for us,” said Crouch. “With an arsenal like we have, we can make pitching changes within minutes.”
