Centerville opened the game with a quick four runs that plated Brady Kauzlarich, McCain Oden, Daniel Hargrave, and Tyson Belloma to make the game 4-0.  

In the second inning, Centerville tacked on another six runs to make the game 10-0. Wilton did not score in the game, but their first three batters all finished 1-for-2 on the day.

Centerville scored three more runs in the third inning and blanked Wilton in the final innings to advance.

Kauzlarich and Belloma pitched a combine shutout through four innings and only gave up a total of three hits. The Big Reds pounded out 13 hits on offense.

Centerville (26-7) will advance to the state championship on Saturday. Wilton will end their season with a 25-6 record.

The Big Reds are seeking their third state title. They last won in 2008 when they posted three straight upset wins. They also won in 1988.
