BASEBALL: Eastern, York Catholic clinch outright titles

A day after the York-Adams League crowned its outright baseball champions in Division I and Division II, Division III and Division IV followed suit Tuesday.

Eastern York (13-6 overall, 11-3 in the division) claimed the Division III title with its 13-3 victory at York Suburban. The teams were locked in a close affair, with the Trojans leading 2-1, before Eastern posted four runs in the fifth and seven more in the sixth to pull away.
