On Wednesday, Nick Kocent played a flawless third base as Our Lady of the Sacred Heart defeated Union 5-1 at Pullman Park in Butler to extend the Chargers’ baseball season.
At the plate, Kocent drew a walk as OLSH had 16 baserunners in six innings and Preston Falascino limited Union to five hits and struck out nine.
The win was OLSH’s 17th straight, dating back to an exhibition loss in South Carolina on March 23 and guaranteed the Chargers at least two more games. OLSH will play a semifinal today against California at 4:00 at the Burkett Complex and either the championship or a consolation game that will determine the third PIAA Class A team from the WPIAL. Those games will be next week.
