Both pitchers in the game threw all seven innings, Zack Sperger for Lansing and Colin White for Adirondack, and there were no hits in the game until the fourth inning of play.

Carson Crandall broke the scoreless tie in the sixth inning, driving in Lansing’s lone run with an RBI single. Crandall had both of the Bobcats’ hits on the afternoon, singles in the fourth and sixth innings.

Adirondack answered that run with two of their own singles by Bailey Gleasman and Gabe Chiocki driving in a run apiece and giving the Wildcats a one-run lead going into the last inning of play.

White would finish his complete game, inducing a popout in foul territory for the final out and securing Adirondack a spot in the state Class C final four.

BREAKING: Lansing pops into foul territory and Bailey Gleasman makes a great play for the final out. The 11-seed in their own Sectional tournament, Adirondack is now in the state final four and will play their next game at Binghamton University.

FINAL: Adirondack 2-1 Lansing
