By James Cook:
Earlier in the week James Monroe led by eleven hits defeated the PikeView Panthers 3-1 in Mercer County to send the Mavericks to the championship game in Class AA-Region 3-Section 2 on Thursday.
The No.1 seed panthers could not do much with Mavericks’ hurler Grant Mohler on the evening, scoring only once on seven hits. Colton Bradley had three hits as Mohler also pitched a complete game for the No.2 seed Mavericks.
The Mavericks must beat PikeView again on Thursday, as the Panthers topped Shady Spring 5-4 on Wednesday night. The two will battle at least on more time in Gardner tomorrow evening.
