La Salle trailed briefly before plating three runs in the home half of the third inning to advance to the opening round of the double-elimination portion of Pod 2.

The Rams then worked back-to-back walks before Nate Bautista had a massive two-RBI single to left field for a 3-1 advantage. Caden Calabro capped the scoring for the Rams with an RBI-single in the sixth. Patrick Jones picked up the win with a complete game effort with seven strikeouts to just three walks and a trio of hits allowed.

No. 5 East Providence 1, No. 12 Chariho 0

Fifth-seeded East Providence survived No. 12 Chariho’s upset bid on Gavin Palombo’s walk-off hit in the bottom of the eighth. The sophomore smacked a ground ball up-the-middle to score Nolan Lorenz from second with two outs in the inning. Lorenz walked and then advanced to second on a fielder’s choice before Palombo dashed the Chargers’ hope. It was a true pitcher’s duel with Tim Robitaille going 7 2/3 with just three hits allowed, while fanning 10 for East Providence. And Chariho’s Landon Sumner, a sophomore, matched the Townies with three hits allowed, 10 strikeouts and four walks.

No. 6 St. Raphael 4, No. 11 North Providence 3

The Saints surrendered three runs, and their lead, in the top of the seventh. But that just made for some walk-off baseball. Tyler Tremblay singled to center and Harold Fernandez worked a five-pitch walk. Michael Frausto also walked to load the bases and Tremblay scored the winner on a past ball. Tremblay was 2-for-2 with three runs scored and Carson Dupras finished 2-for-3 with a pair of RBIs.

The Northmen bats gave starting pitcher, Kayden Artruc, more than enough support. The senior pitched five innings of two-hit ball with four Ks as North Smithfield secured the mercy rule win and advance to play West Warwick on Tuesday. Artruc was part of the terrific hitting for North Smithfield after a 4-for-4 day with an RBI and two runs scored. The Northmen were leading 4-0 after four innings, but plated six in the sixth inning. Daniel Harrison went 1-for-3 with two RBIs. Nathan Dec was 2-for-4 with two RBIs and Jayden Lynch also had a pair of hits with an RBI.

No. 6 Mount Pleasant 9, No. 11 Providence Country Day 1

The hosts and defending league champs, tallied eight hits in six innings to cruise to the preliminary round win. The damage was done in the fifth inning as the Kilties broke open a 2-0 game with five runs in the frame. Ed Roquez doubled in the first run and then the Kilties had four straight baserunners (three walks; HBP) before Alci Castillo’s two-RBI single made it 7-0. Castillo finished 2-for-3 with three RBIs. Roquez picked up the win with just one hit allowed through six innings.

No. 5 Exeter-West Greenwich 2, No. 12 Hope 1

Two runs in the bottom of the fourth for the Scarlet Knights was the difference in this nail-biter. After Kole Kilduff reached on an error, James Smith hit a two-bagger to left to score Kilduff to tie the game. Smith advanced to third later in the frame on an error and came into score on a past ball. Smith was 2-for-3 in the game and Kilduff pitched four innings of two-hit ball with seven strikeouts.

SOFTBALL

Division I single-elimination round

No. 6 East Greenwich 1, No. 11 North Kingstown 0

Ava Fairbanks led off the bottom of the first with an inside-the-park home run and then went out and shoved for six more innings, guiding the Avengers to a 1-0 win over the Skippers.

After pitching a 1-2-3 first, Fairbanks led off for East Greenwich in the bottom half of the inning. She took a ball on the first pitch, the sliced a shot to left field on the second offering. The North Kingstown left fielder tried to make a diving play on the ball but couldn’t get to it and it ran to the fence, allowing the speedy Fairbanks to circle the bases with the game’s first run.

It proved to be enough. The All-Stater had her A-game on Friday. She retired the first 13 batters she faced before giving up a hit to Gianna Amedeo with one out in the fifth.

North Kingstown tried to rally in the seventh. Mia D’Andrea – who reached via a fielder’s choice after a Riley McHale single – took second on an infield single by Julianna Bucci, but Fairbanks locked in from there. She induced a pop out, then finished the game with a strikeout.

Amadeo picked up the tough-luck loss for NK. The sophomore was electric, giving up five hits and walking one while striking out four.

East Greenwich now moves on to the double-elimination portion of the Division I Tournament and will travel to take on Pilgrim next week.

No. 5 Cranston West 4, No. 12 Moses Brown 1

With teammate Mia Crudale engaged in a pitching duel with Anna Costello, Falcons’ freshman Mia Baffoni came up in the sixth inning with the support Crudale needed, ripping a two-out, two-strike double that scored the go-ahead runs in their 4-1 win over the Quakers.

Cranston West’s first run of the game was scored because of an error and when Moses Brown handed out another extra out in the sixth, the Falcons took advantage.

Samantha Healy’s bloop single advanced Nicole Silvestri to second and set the stage for Baffoni. The freshman took a strike, fouled off a pitch and after a ball, ripped a shot over the left-fielder’s head for a two-run double. Mia Santomassimo followed with an RBI single to put West ahead 4-1.

It was more cushion than Crudale needed. The junior didn’t get off to the best start, walking MB leadoff batter Abigail DeWolfe, who advanced on a steal and a bunt single before scoring on a passed ball.

But after that Crudale was lights out. After pitching herself out of the jam in the first, she gave up one more hit and didn’t find herself in trouble until the fifth. Crudale again walked DeWolfe to start the inning and DeWolfe took second on a sac bunt, forcing Crudale to face Coco Medeiros and Costello – the Quakers’ best two hitters – with one.

Crudale – who finished the game with 10 strikeouts – came through clutch, getting a pop fly to center and a strikeout to end the threat.

Costello was impressive in defeat. The two-time All-Stater dominated from start to finish, striking out 11. Costello gave up four runs, all unearned.

Cranston West moves on to the double-elimination portion of the Division I Tournament and will take on No. 4 Prout Tuesday at 4 p.m.

Division IV first round

No. 1 Central Falls 15, No. 4 Juanita Sanchez 1

LC Collins and Jeilyn Nieves paced the offense as the Warriors cruised to a 15-1 win over the Cavaliers.

Collins was a beast hitting out of the six hole. The freshman went 3-for-5, including a home run, with five RBI and two runs scored. Nieves had a nice day hitting in front of Collins, going 2-for-3 with three RBI and three runs scored.

Chloe Acosta pitched a five-inning complete game, striking out nine and giving up just one hit while walking one.

Jezaidy Cortes-Crespo had the only hit for Juanita Sanchez. The Cavaliers drop to the losers’ bracket and will play the loser of Friday’s game between Classical and Providence Co-Op.

Offense ruled the day and it was a back-and-forth affair all afternoon. Prout led 13-11 in the fourth quarter before East Greenwich scored two quick goals to tie things up.

Up stepped Martin, who found the back of the net for the fifth time with just over six minutes left and the defense made sure the lead stuck.

Sylvia Mayo led the Crusaders with seven goals and Lizzi Hill had the other two scores. Tessa Charello-Ingegneri led East Greenwich with five goals and Maeve Kiernan scored three.

Division II quarterfinals

No. 2 Chariho 13, No. 7 Toll Gate 6

The first half was closer than the Chargers would have liked, but the offense turned things on in the second half and took over the game in a 13-6 win over the Titans.

Chariho was the favorite in this one, but nobody bothered to tell Toll Gate, which hung tough and trailed 6-4 at the break.

It was the wakeup call the Super Chargers needed as the offense exploded in the second half with wins in the draw circle that led to possessions that led to goals and allowed them to build separation to earn the victory.

Chaia Elwell led the way for Chariho with seven goals, Emily Ballard put home two to go with three assist and sister Megan had one goal and three assists. Lola DosSantos, Kylie Hoffman and Aubrey Currier accounted for the other goals.
