    Dixie Heights 4 Covington Catholic 3

    Pitzer takes a no-hitter and a 3-0 lead into the 6th. Dixie gets 3 in the 6th to tie. Dixie holds in the 7th and gets 4 consecutive singles for the walk-off win. Royce McGee lands the game-winner with no outs in the 7th. CovCath played small ball all day and seemed to have the game in control. Pitzer was gassed at the end and hindsight says a pitch change was needed back in the 6th. Smallwood struck out 3 in 5.2 innings work and Breeden picks up the win pitching the final 1.1 innings.

    Controversy in the 4th on a play at the plate… Dixie catcher Tyler Albert in the baseline, receiving a throw from left. The runner does not slide and a hip-to-hip/upper body collision has both sides screaming. Albert holds onto the ball and the runner is called out either on the tag or for not sliding, not sure. Could have gone either way and the runner could have been ejected for not sliding. At the end, Albert out of the game with an injury and on crutches at the handshake. Hope he is ok... secondhand report was a bruised thigh.

    Nice weekend of work for Dixie, 3 wins and the Coach Connor Classic title.

    You do not get ejected for not sliding.

    All collisions are not automatic outs.

    I have only watched CCH once this year.

    Is Pitzer their #1 ?

    Does Young start or only relieve ?

    Pitzer is working his way to being the #1 for CCH. Reports I heard were that he was the victim of some more shoddy infield play by CCH that Krumps is unwilling or unable to fix. I heard that the Dixie catcher essentially blocked the plate without the ball when the collision occurred, throw came in and then he tagged out the CCH runner. Not sure if that is accurate or not.
