The Buckman Billygoats beat the Farming Flames 5-1 in Delano to advance to the Class C Semifinals on Sunday afternoon.  The Flames, Region 15 Champions, started strong against Buckman starter Jeremy Monson by scoring 1 run on 3 its in the top of the 1st, with Ethan Navratil doubling to drive in Taylor Fourre and give Farming a 1-0 lead.  The Billygoats had an immediate response in the bottom of the 1st against Farming lefty Brad Mergen.  Matt Tautges led off with a walk, followed by a Lane Girtz single.  Matt Kummet then got hit by a Mergen itch and the Goats had the bases loaded with no outs.  Aaron Weber stroked an rbi single to left to tie the game at 1-1, as Tautges came home on the hit.  Noah Boser then bounced into a double play, with Girtz scoring, putting the Billygoats ahead 2-1 after 1 inning.

In the top of the 2nd, Buckman brought in Chad Weiss to take over from Jeremy Monson.  Weiss had worked the final 2 innings in the Goats 17-inning victory the night before against Young America, getting credit for the Win.  Chad responded well to the short-rest assignment, quickly retiring the Flames in order.  Mergen matched that with a 1-2-3 inning of his own.  The same story repeated itself in the 3rd as both sides went down quickly.  Weiss made it 3 straight clean innings with a quick top of the 4th on just 8 pitches.  In the bottom of the 4th, Aaron Weber led off the inning with a base hit, Noah Boser got hit by a pitch from Mergen to pt two men on base with no outs.  A perfect sacrifice bunt from Joe Kahl moved both runners into scoring position with 1 out.   Mergen then hit Shawn Lanners with a pitch and the bases were loaded.  That was the end of the day for Mergen, who was relieved by a draftee from Richmond, Eli Emerson.  Aaron Weber would race home on a wild pitch and Jack Suska produced another run with a fielders choice as Buckman grew their lead to 4-1 after 4 innings.  In the top of the 5th, Chad Weiss got a fly out to center, a grounder to 3rd and a bouncer back to the mound to make quick work again of the Flames.  In the bottom of the 5th, Buckman added their final run of the game when Lane Girtz was hit by a pitch to reach base.  A passed ball moved Lane to 2nd.After a strikeout and  fly out to right, A Noah Boser infield single to deep 2nd was enough to allow Girtz to score as Buckman took a 5-1 lead.  In the top of the 6th, Taylor Fourre beat out and infield single to to break Weiss's string of 12 straight batters retired.  But te next 3 Farming hitters all were retired on the first pitch and Fourre was stranded at 1st.  Neither team seriously threatened in the 7th or 8th and Weiss and the Billygoats took their 5-1 lead into the top of the 9th.  Cody Fourre connected for a 1-out single off Weiss, but the veteran righty got Nick Mergen to fly out to center field and then ended the game with a Brad Mergen ground out to 2nd and the Billygoats had earned their way to the Class C Semifinals with a 5-1 win.Weiss needed just 76 pitches in his 8 shutout innings of relief to get the Win.
