Extra bases: Central Catholic finished third in Section 1 behind co-champions North Allegheny and Pine-Richland. While the Vikings have not played since May 13, they have won five of their last six games, including an 11-7 win over Hempfield. They lost to Norwin early in the season 8-0. Logan Creamer and Nick Robertson are key pitchers for the Vikings, and O’Leary is a tough out and a run producer. … Norwin blanked Central Catholic, 8-0, for its first win of the season in late March. Shortstop Jake Kendro is a Tennessee commit. Whalen is headed to Seton Hill. The Knights’ last game was a 4-3 loss to West Allegheny on May 11. A five-game winning streak late in the season helped the Knights rally and finish second in Section 2 behind Mt. Lebanon, the No. 1 seed. The Knights have power in the lineup with Ty Stecko, Kendro and Sebastian Rosado-Guindin. Norwin lost to Hempfield in last year’s semifinals 12-2. The winner will have a quick turnaround with a semifinal game Tuesday.
