Fifth-ranked Huskies return to the state semis with their second straight one-run victory
Fifth-ranked Patterson Mill scored single runs in the first and third innings and pitcher Jake Sheesley made them stand up, as the Huskies defeated McDonough of Calvert County, 2-1, in the 1A North Region baseball championship game.

In winning their third straight regional title, the Huskies (21-2) were out-hit, 4-3, but Sheesley went the distance, walking only one and striking out four. He closed strong, retiring the last five batters of the game.

“He was outstanding today, getting ahead of hitters consistently and mixing all of his pitches very well” said Patterson Mill coach Matt Roseland of Sheesley. “Anytime you throw a complete game in 90 pitches, that tells the story.”

Max Elliott hit a double, scored a run, drew a walk and produced an RBI with a sac fly, to lead the Patterson Mill lineup. Catcher Eric Raley also had a double and a run scored and Steve Spencer delivered a run with a sac fly.

The start of the game was delayed for 90 minutes by rain, but both teams pitched well and neither side committed an error.

“I am extremely proud of our program for earning their third straight regional championship and our 21st victory of the year,” said Roseland. “1A baseball is an extremely tough brand of baseball. We are excited to grind through another 21 outs on Tuesday.”

Friday's one-run win followed a 5-4 win over Bo Manor in the Sectional finals. On Tuesday at McCurdy Field in Frederick, the Huskies will face St. Michael’s of the Eastern Shore as they try to get back to the state championship game for a second straight year.
