The Cardinals led by five going to the sixth before Brookville scored six runs on six hits and a walk in the top of the inning taking an 8-7 lead on a two-run single to left by Kai Kaltenbach.

But DCC was able to fight back against relief pitcher Carson Weaver in the bottom of the inning.

Andrew Green and Matt Pyne drew walks to lead off the inning, but Weaver was in a position to get out of the jam when he struck out Aiden Snowberger and got Carter Hickman to fly out.

Brayden Fox, however, tied the game with a single to center, and Kaden Brezinski walked to load the bases before Weaver hit Blake Pisarcik to give DCC the lead and then walked Carter Kosko on a 3-2 pitch to give the Cardinals an insurance run.

Brookville put its leadoff hitter on to start the seven, but Snowberger came in and shut the door to earn the save striking out two in his one inning of work.

Pisarcik hit a home run for DCC and went 1-for-3 with a walk, a run, and three runs scored.

Fox was on base four times going 1-for-1 with two walks while also being hit by a pitch. He scored one and drove in two.

Snowberger and Hickman each had two hits with both going 2-for-4 with a walk, a run scored, and an RBI. One of Hickman’s hits was a double.


Kosko also had two RBIs walking three times and scoring once, and Pyne was 2-for-3 with a walk and three runs scored.

Bryce Weaver, Kaltenbach, and Noah Shaffer each had two RBIs for Brookville.

Weaver walked once, Kaltenbach was 1-for-4, and Shaffer was 2-for-4.

Pierson Ruhlman also had two hits for the Raiders going 2-for-3 while also being hit by a pitch and scoring two runs.

Carter Kessler added a pair of runs scored and an RBI while drawing a walk, and Sergio Sotillo was 1-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.

Hickman, the third of four DCC pitchers, got the win.

He pitched an inning allowing two earned runs on two hits and a walk while striking out one.

Carter Himes started and was strong in five innings of work giving up two runs, one earned, on two hits, three walks, and a hit batter while striking out three.

Kosko was tagged with four earned runs on four hits while not recording an out in the sixth.

Carson Weaver, the fourth of four Brookville hurlers, took the loss giving up three earned runs on a hit, four walks, and a hit batter in an inning of work. He struck out one.


Wildness plagued Brookville, as the Raiders walked 14 and hit two more.

Shaffer started and lasted four innings giving up five earned runs on nine hits, five walks, and a hit batter while striking out two. Carter Kessler went ⅔ of an inning allowing two earned runs on five hits, and Ruhlman pitched 1.3 of an inning needing just four pitches to record a strikeout.
