Class 7A State Baseball Championship Series Game 2: Bob Jones 11, McGill-Toolen Catholic 7

   Bob Jones High School slugged 17 hits to out-score McGill-Toolen Catholic 11-7 in  game two of the Class 7A State Baseball Championship Series at Riverwalk Stadium to even the series at 1-1 Saturday.
    Game three was to get underway at 1 p.m. Saturday afternoon.  The NFHS Network is live-streaming the Class 7A series over its subscriber-based platform. For more information, go to

      McGill-Toolen won game one 8-6 but the contest ended with the Patriots (42-9) scoring three runs in the final inning. The bats of Coach Jared Smith’s lineup picked Saturday where they left off Friday night. Bob Jones scored five runs in the first two innings. However, McGill-Toolen’s lineup also came out hitting and held a 6-5 lead after three innings.  Reliever Sam Maynard stepped in to pitch five solid innings in relief allowing only two hits and one run the rest of the way to get the win.
     The only hit he allowed was a towering home run to left field in the bottom of the seventh inning to McGill center fielder Michael Ellis. By then, the Patriots had posted 11 runs. Ellis also socked a double for Coach Tim Becker’s Jackets.
     Junior Cam Hill had four hits, including a double, and drove in a run to pace the 17-hit attack for Bob Jones. Right fielder Colton Carver had two hits and four RBIs, Slate Alford had three hits and John Michael Riley had two hits, two sacrifice flies and two RBIs.
   Ellis and Vinny Martino each had two hits for McGill-Toolen (31-8). Both Matthew Glover and Spencer Hadley had a single and two RBIs.
     The Class 7A series closes out the 2019 AHSAA State Baseball Championships.
