It took a few days, but New Market advanced to the Rockingham County Baseball League semifinals.
The second-seeded Shockers finished off a suspended game on Friday night for a 6-3 victory over seventh-seeded Elkton to win the first-round series 2-1.
The game started on Wednesday night but was suspended in the sixth inning due to rain, with the Shockers leading 5-3. The game could not be restarted on Thursday due to the field being unplayable after hard rains.
The Shockers were led by Shenandoah University graduate Nick Goode with two hits, two runs scored and an RBI. Sherando graduate Frankie Ritter (Shenandoah University), Matt House (Shenandoah University) and Ty Bennett (Shenandoah University) each had two hits. Grant Thompson (Shenandoah University) was 1-for-4 with two RBIs.
Michael Prosperi (Shenandoah University) pitched a third of an inning on Wednesday and picked up the win. Sherando and Shenandoah University graduate Darrell Thompson pitched for the Shockers on Friday and picked up the save. Thompson went four innings and struck out 10.
The Shockers were scheduled to begin a best-of-five semifinal series with sixth-seeded Grottoes on Sunday.
