Two traditional York-Adams baseball powers squared off on Wednesday afternoon in an early-season showdown.

And as you would expect in a contest between two perennially strong programs, the outcome was not decided until the late innings.

Dallastown plated two runs in the bottom of the sixth to break a 2-2 tie and that was enough to give the Wildcats an eventual 4-2 victory over the visiting Gettysburg Warriors.

Dallastown is trying to win a sixth consecutive York-Adams Division I championship. Gettysburg, meanwhile, has won at least a share of the D-II crown for the last four contested seasons. (There was no high school baseball season in 2020 because of the COVID-19 pandemic).

Colin Ahr and Conner Barto combined on a three-hitter for the Wildcats. Ahr went the first five innings, allowing one hit and one earned run. He struck out seven and walked three. Barto pitched the final two innings, allowing two hits and one unearned run.

Leadoff man Brady Altland led the Dallastown attack with a double, two walks, two runs scored and an RBI.

Three Gettysburg pitchers limited Dallastown to five hits and three earned runs. Gettysburg’s Bryce Rudisill pitched 2 2/3 innings of hitless, shutout relief, striking out five and walking three.

Dallastown is now 3-0 overall and in D-I this season.

It was the season opener for Gettysburg.
