Guentzel Rallies Penguins Past Flyers, Series Win
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The two-time defending Stanley Cup champions have reached the second round of the playoffs. The Pittsburgh Penguins survived a wild series clincher as Jake Guentzel scored four straight goals in an 8-5 win over the Flyers in Game 6. Philadelphia led 4-3 until Guentzel began his scoring burst, beating Michal Neuvirth with 54 seconds left in the second period. He put the Pens ahead to stay 30 seconds into the third before adding his fifth and sixth goals of the series to make it 7-4. The Flyers were eliminated despite Sean Couturier's hat trick. The Penguins will take on the winner of the Capitals-Blue Jackets series, which Washington leads three games to two. Pittsburgh would open in Washington or host the first two games with Columbus. The series win is the ninth straight for the Penguins under head coach Mike Sullivan.

Bucs Swept by Phillies
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Aaron Altherr's RBI single in the bottom of the 11th inning lifted the Phillies to a 3-2 victory over Pittsburgh on Sunday, giving Philadelphia its first four-game sweep over the Pirates in 24 years. Andrew Knapp hit an opposite-field triple off the left-field wall with one out off Rich Rodriguez (0-1). With the infield in, Altherr lined a 1-2 pitch to left for his third hit. He raised his hand in the air, ran to first and got mobbed by teammates. The Phillies have won 13 of 16 since a 1-4 start and are seven games over .500 for the first time since they were 24-17 on May 18, 2016. They finished 71-91 that season and lost 96 games last year. Philadelphia had not swept a four-game series from the Pirates since May 12-15, 1994. Pittsburgh has lost four in a row and six of seven after an 11-4 start. Elias Diaz hit a two-run homer for Pittsburgh. Pirates starter Trevor Williams allowed two runs and only one hit — an RBI double to pitcher Nick Pivetta — in six innings. He had five walks and fanned seven. Pivetta gave up two runs and five hits, striking out seven in 6 1/3 innings.

Softball/Baseball Hit Halfway Point
High school baseball/softball teams have battled through numerous weather postponements and delays. Most have worked through section play for the first time and are heading for the home stretch of the regular season. Softball teams are due to wrap up section play by May 8, baseball teams two days later. The top four teams in each section plus any unbreakable ties qualify for the playoffs. Here's a rundown on Washington/Greene County teams halfway through the regular season.
