     Poquoson, Jamestown advance in baseball; Grafton, Smithfield, Warhill, Gloucester win in softball

Poquoson advanced to the Group 3A East regional with a 2-1 victory at Southampton in a C-25 semifinal.

In the seventh inning, Austin Gault singled and scored on sacrifice fly by Trey Hicks, who gained the win with two innings of relief.

Hicks entered and escaped a two-on, none-out predicament in the sixth with a sacrifice bunt and two flyouts, then struck out the side in the seventh.

Drew Watkins singled home Kyle Jackson in the fifth with the tying run for the Islanders, who will play Colonial Heights at Shepherd Stadium at 6 p.m. Thursday in the conference final.

     Poquoson edges Warhill in ninth to reach C-25 semifinals

The remnants of the 2014 Group 3A state runners-up — seniors Trey Hicks, Drew Watkins, Dylan Freeman and junior Cole Jackson — and their teammates began this postseason with a 4-3 win over Warhill in nine innings in the Conference 25 first round Tuesday at Firth Field. The victory moved the Islanders (13-8) into a semifinal Wednesday at Southampton (16-2), where the winner will earn a 3A East Region tournament berth.

Also in the dugout two years ago was Travis Cannella, a junior-varsity call-up who didn’t play but had an excellent view of older brother Richie Cannella’s state semifinal pitching gem that sent the Islanders into the final. Now a senior, Travis Cannella left his mark with an RBI single to center in the bottom of the ninth that drove in Jackson, who had doubled, with the winning run.

     Clemson baseball 'all starts with' Poquoson's Chase Pinder

Clemson's lineup includes the ACC's home run and RBI leaders, but Tigers coach Monte Lee cites another player as his club's catalyst.

"It all starts with Chase Pinder for us at the top of the order," he said.

A 2014 Poquoson High graduate, Pinder is Clemson's centerfielder. Entering this week's ACC tournament — the Tigers open pool play 11 a.m. Thursday against reigning national champion Virginia — he ranks third on the team in batting average, home runs and on-base percentage.

"You look at our offense, and when our offense is clicking it's because Chase Pinder is getting on base," Lee said. "He gets on base at a very high rate, even when he's not getting hits he finds a way to get on base. He'll get hit by pitches, he'll take walks. He's a guy that understands his role."

Pinder's role has changed markedly from his last season, when he started at second base and usually hit sixth under former coach Jack Leggett. Most important, Pinder the sophomore is far healthier than Pinder the freshman.

     Cleveland Indians demote lefty Kyle Crockett to Triple-A

The Indians and left-handed relievers just don't seem to hit it off. First, Ross Detwiler came out of nowhere to make the Tribe's bullpen as the lone lefty at the start of the season. He made seven appearances, compiling a 5.79 ERA, before being designated for assignment. Detwiler is currently at Class AAA Columbus pitching as a starter.

On Sunday morning the Indians announced that Kyle Crockett, another lone lefty reliever, was optioned to Columbus in favor of right-hander Austin Adams.

Crockett is still searching for the form that made him such a promising rookie in 2014. He returns to Columbus carrying a 14.43 ERA (six earned runs in 3 2/3 innings). The opposition hit .389 against him.

Manager Terry Francona used Crockett mostly as a left-on-left reliever. It did not work well as lefties hit .385 (5-for-13) against him.
