Caden Evans got the win, settling in after the first. He only allowed one hit in the final six innings after giving up three in the first.

No. 10 Remsen St. Mary’s 4, No. 2 Martensdale-St. Marys 2

Blaine Harpenau took a no-hitter into the seventh inning to lead the Hawks to a quarterfinal upset. Harpenau allowed just two hits and two earned runs, all in the seventh inning, and struck out six.

St. Mary's did its damage in the top of the fifth, starting with a Jaxon Bunkers double to begin the frame. After Brady Homan singled, two straight hit batters led to the first run. Xavier Gallas followed with a two-run single to make it 3-0 and another run later scored via balk.

After giving up two hits, a walk and a sac fly to begin the seventh, Harpenau gathered himself and got a pop-up and strikeout to end it.
