Tigers, Sox advance in Midget playoffs

The semifinal round of the Linglestown Baseball Association’s Midget Division playoffs ended Friday with a pair of sweeps in the best-of-three series.

The Sox jumped out to an early lead and cruised to an 11–5 win over the Orioles. Gary Smith of the Sox hit a home run and picked up the victory as the winning pitcher. For the O’s, Derek Danko ripped a single to left field to drive in two runs in the third inning.

In the nightcap, the Tigers defeated the Cubs 12-2 to advance to the Midget Championship series against the Sox. Aaron Gress of the Tigers pitched three strong innings and hit a monster three-run home run. Teammate J.T. Fredericks went two-for-two with a double in the winning effort. For the Cubs, Brandt Lingle stroked a run-scoring double
