With help from a shutout performance on the mound and some great hitting in the early innings, the South River baseball team launched itself into its first state final in 30 years with a 4-0 victory over Eleanor Roosevelt on Tuesday.
Behind junior Craig Sheridan’s shutout performance on the mound, the No. 4-seeded Seahawks won the class 4A semifinal game and will now play in their first state championship game in 30 years, according to The Baltimore Sun.
Sheridan pitched a complete game shutout, striking out 10 while giving up just one hit in the contest. The Seahawks helped Sheridan on offense early— scoring three runs in the first inning.
South River will now face No. 1 Catonsville in the state championship game Friday at Ripken Stadium in Aberdeen.
