A little mechanical work on the mound allowed the Seneca East hurler to improve to 4-0 on the year after a 10-2 victory against Plymouth.
"We spent time with Mason working on his mechanics this week," Seneca East coach Frank Lamoreaux said. "Plymouth is a good baseball team. We played great defense behind him and it didn't hurt that we had 13 hits."
McWilliams held Big Red (11-5) to six hits and two walks while striking out 10 in the complete game victory.
Offensively, the Tigers (12-3) set the tone in the second inning with three runs. They added two in fourth and Plymouth finally plated one in the bottom half of the inning. Seneca East busted it open though in the fifth with four runs.
Billy Diehm doubled and singled, driving in four. Darin Baldosser had two singles, driving in two. Jake Nagel mixed a double into his three hits, plating one and scoring one. Jordan Bowerman scored twice and singled. Kyle Depinet singled twice, scored twice and drove in a run.
Plymouth's Zach Butler doubled to pace the Big Red attack. Dustin Campbell took the loss.
Calvert defense big in win over Woodmore
To Calvert coach Matt Coleman, the key to Thursday's 8-2 win over Woodmore came in the first inning.
The Wildcats' Evan Ulinski and Zach Brossia each reached base to start the game, but Calvert's Derek Herzog turned a double play on a John Sandwisch grounder, then Senecas' shortstop Matt Frank made a diving stop on a Danny Munoz grounder and ended the inning.
"I think the turning point was in the first inning before we even hit," Coleman said.
Calvert scored three runs in the bottom of the inning, and that's all Senecas' starting pitcher Eric Elchert needed. He allowed 10 hits over seven innings, but only a pair of runs in the fourth. He struck out four and walked one.
"They were a good hitting team and Eric pitched to contact," Coleman said.
Ryan Huss drove in a pair of runs, while Clint Bogner doubled, drove in a run and scored three times.
Calvert improved to 9-3.
Munoz homered and drove in two runs for Woodmore.
Rams rally for 12 in final 2 innings to stun NR
UPPER SANDUSKY - It looked like a football score. A glance at the box scored indicated that Upper Sandusky scored a game-winning touchdown in the seventh inning.
In a wild game that took place on the diamond rather than the gridiron, the Rams overcame an 11-2 deficit by scoring six runs in the sixth inning, and then again in the seventh, to stun New Riegel, 14-13.
Mark Walton and Adam Duress each drove in three runs, as the Rams improved to 4-8. Justin Mattix had three hits, including a double and a triple, and drove in three runs.
Beau Brown knocked in the game-winning run in the seventh.
For New Riegel, Jake Dryfuse had two hits and drove in three runs. Josh Nye also drove in a pair of runs.
With the loss, New Riegel fell to 5-6.
Ross Dible got the win on the mound for the Rams.
Rohrs, Russell lead Northwood over OF
OLD FORT - Justin Rohrs homered, Nick Russell tripled twice and Northwood won big over Old Fort, 11-1.
The Rangers scored one in the first and five in the third, and cruised from there. Russell was a big reason why, as he had three hits overall and scored four runs. Rohrs scored twice and drove in a pair of runs.
Jacob Davenport started on the mound for the Wildcats, as he lasted six innings, striking out six and walking five. The run he allowed was unearned.
For Old Fort (1-10) Garret Kimmet singled and scored a run. Matt Goodman (0-3) took the loss on the mound.
Redmen silence TC bats
BELLEVUE - Bellevue scratched out runs in the second and sixth, and Columbian managed just four hits as the Tornadoes fell to the Redmen, 2-0.
The loss was the second-straight conference loss for TC, which fell to 8-4, 4-2 in the Northern Ohio League.
Daniel Wood (2-2) took the loss, despite going all seven innings and allowing just one earned run. He struck out two, walked three and allowed eight hits.
Columbian's Jonah Boyer had two hits, one of which was a double.
Streaks top Bobcats
FREMONT - Zack Yeckley doubled and tripled, and St. Joe used four-run bursts in the first and second to distance itself from Bettsville in a 12-2 win.
Austin Jess picked up the win for the Streaks, who improved to 4-9, 2-2 in the Midland Athletic League.
Kennedy Hossler took the loss for the Bobcats, who moved to 1-7, 1-3 in the MAL.
Anthony Meza had a multi-hit game for Bettsville.
