Final 8 matchup takes Eastern Guilford to Hillsborough Orange. Freshman Andrew Robinson would start for the Wildcats and Jordan Toney would start for Orange.
1st Inning would be nothing for either team. 0-0 after 1
Eastern would get back to back hits from Luke Robinson and Marque Johnson but could not capitalize. In the bottom half Andrew Robinson would get a leadoff out then would give up a single. The next batter would reach on an error to 2nd base. Robinson would strike out the next batter that should have got him out of the inning but would give up a 2 run single instead. 2-0 Orange after 2 innings.
The Wildcats would answer in the top of the 3rd when Ryan Hackett would single followed by Andrew Robinson who doubled. Caleb Robinson would drive in both runs with a single. Orange would get a couple of hits but Robinson would shut it down without allowing a run. 2-2 after 3 innings.
Neither team would do much in the 4th inning. 2-2 after 4 innings.
The Wildcats would strike in the 5th inning for 3 runs. Hackett would get a double then Andrew Robinson would get a walk. Caleb Robinson would hit into a fielders choice leaving runners on the corner with 2 outs. Luke Robinson would come to the plate and get a wild pitch bringing home Hackett and moving C. Robinson to 2nd. Then Luke Robinson would take the 2 out full count pitch and launch it deep over the center field fence for a 2 run home run. Orange would get the leadoff batter on with an error to 3rd base but next batter would hit into the double play. Then a walk and a single before A. Robinson would strike out the next guy for the 3rd out. 5-2 Eastern after 5 innings.
In the 6th Eastern would get a couple runners on with an error and single but could not get the timely hit. Orange would get a leadoff single but then the 2nd batter would hit a soft blooper to 2nd base with the runner in motion. This was a sure double play but the 2nd baseman drops the ball with both runners safe. Robinson would get the next guy to ground out (Should have been 3rd out). Leadoff batter comes up and gets a walk before Jon Evans launches one over the left field wall for a grand slam. The next batter doubles and scores on another single to stretch the lead to 7-5 Orange after 6 innings.
Wildcats got the tying run to the plate but that would be all and Orange would win 7-5.
