Piedmont got two well-pitched games, some timely hitting and flawless defense to score a pair of victories at Jacksonville State Tuesday.
The Bulldogs beat Corner and Oneonta by identical 4-1 scores.
Bryce Walter scattered eight hits, struck out six and gave up one unearned run against Corner.
Mason Mohon’s RBI double gave Piedmont a 1-0 lead in the first inning and the Bulldogs added two more in the second on Austin Estes’ two-run double.  Jack Hayes plated their fourth run with a fifth-inning sacrifice fly.
Silas Thompson and Sean Smith combined on a two-hitter in the Oneonta game. Thompson worked the first four innings and Smith pitched three no-hit innings of relief for the save. Smith didn’t allow a ball out of the infield and struck out five, including the side in the seventh.
Brant Deerman went 3-for-3 with an RBI single in the second and a triple that started a three-run fifth. Mohon, Hayes and Smith drove in those runs with consecutive hits.

White Plains 7, Westbrook Christian 6: Brendan Roper drove in three runs and there’s no telling how many he saved with a Willie Mays-Vic Wertz style catch for the first out in the seventh inning.

Westbrook loaded the bases after Roper’s catch and made it a one-run game with two outs, but the Wildcats got out of the jam.
Roper hit a two-run single in the third that gave White Plains a 4-1 lead and drove in a fifth-inning run with a grounder to short. Coleman Messer had two hits for the Wildcats.
In the Wildcats’ other game, Carter Barnes’ two-run double highlighted a three-run 10ththat sent the Wildcats to an 8-5 defeat. The Wildcats tied it with a five-run sixth, Jaden Chatman’s two-out, two-run single brought the tying runs home.
The Wildcats had a runner in scoring position with one out in the bottom of the seventh and a runner in scoring position with one out in the eighth and couldn’t get them home. White Plains’ reliever Quin Wilson retired the side in order in the eighth and ninth before Westbrook erupted in the tenth.
