Pine-Richland scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the fourth inning on a North Allegheny error to pull ahead, 5-4.

After allowing four runs to the Tigers in the first three innings, Pine-Richland starter Matt Schietroma settled down and blanked NA in innings four and five. Reliever Josh Scherer took the ball from there and tossed two shutout innings to secure the victory and earn the save. Schietroma struck out nine and walked one in five innings to pick up the win.

North Allegheny starting pitcher Kevin Schott was saddled with the loss, allowing five runs (four earned) in five innings. Schott struck out four while walking a pair. Hattrup worked one scoreless inning out of the bullpen.

Tigers Defeat No. 1 Central Catholic In Section Opener, 7-5

Posted on:

For the second time this season North Allegheny took on the No. 1-ranked team in Class 6A on the road, and for the second time in 2019 the Tigers came away victorious with a 7-5 decision at Central Catholic on Monday afternoon. Sophomore Logan Andreyko broke a 5-5 tie in the seventh inning with an RBI double that scored Anthony Hattrup to give the Tigers the lead. Andreyko, who finished 2 for 3 with two RBI and two runs scored, trotted home later in the inning on an RBI single by Jared Orwell to solidify a 7-5 win.

In the first inning, North Allegheny jumped out to a 3-0 lead thanks to a two-run single from Cole Young and an RBI single by Joey Colella.  The lead was short-lived, however, as Central Catholic answered back in the bottom of the first to tie the score at 3-3.

The score remained deadlocked until the bottom of the fifth inning when Central Catholic’s Conor Deasy singled home Will Ray to grab a 4-3 lead.

Hattrup led off the sixth inning with a single and raced home moments later on an RBI triple by Andreyko to even the score at 4-4. Andreyko crossed the pay station on a passed ball a short time later to pull NA ahead again, 5-4.

Once more, the Vikings responded in the bottom of the sixth and knotted things up at 5-5 on an RBI groundout by Joe Olsavksy.

That set the stage for Andreyko’s big hit in the top of the seventh to put North Allegheny in front for good. In the bottom of the seventh, reliever Shane Murphy induced a game-ending double play off the bat of Dom Pieto to close out a 7-5 victory for the Tigers in the Section 1-6A opener.

Murphy worked two scoreless innings to pick up the win. Olsavsky was saddled with the loss for Central Catholic, allowing two runs in two innings on the bump.

With the win, North Allegheny improves to 5-3 overall and 1-0 in the section. Central Catholic falls to 7-2 overall and 0-1 in section play. The Tigers will host Butler on Wednesday night at 7:00 p.m. The game will be broadcast live via the internet by the North Allegheny Sports Network.
