The York-Adams American Legion baseball playoffs are slated to begin next week.

Northeastern pitcher Quinn Shindler looks primed for the event.

Shindler struck out 10 batters in just five innings on Wednesday night to help Northeastern capture an 11-3 victory over visiting Glen Rock.

The game was only five innings because it was the first game of a scheduled doubleheader. The second game was not completed because of darkness.

Shindler threw all five innings. He walk two, while allowing two earned runs on one single.

Northeastern’s offense was paced by Nate Rogers (1 for 1, four RBIs), Colin Mort (2 for 2, three RBIs), Cole Eichelberger (1 for 2, two runs, RBI) and Brinden Floyd (1 for 1, two runs).

For Glen Rock, Scott Denis went 1 for 3 with one RBI and one run scored.

The Legion's regular season wraps up on Friday, with the single-elimination playoffs starting next Tuesday and running through Thursday. Playoff pairings are expected to be set after Friday's action. The two finalists in that draw will earn berths into the Region 4 Tournament.

Red Lion (12-1) will have the No. 1 playoff seed.

Northeastern is at Red Lion on Friday in a regular-season finale.
