Bedford pitcher Dylan Downs and Ty Black gave up six hits.

Black took the loss and gave up both runs in the seventh inning.

The victory gave Claysburg the top seed in the double-defeat elimination playoffs that open tonight with four games, all at 5:30 p.m.

Claysburg will take on No. 8 Lilly at the Revloc field while No. 5 Ebensburg is at fourth-seeded Bedford on the one side of the bracket.

On the other side of the bracket, No. 2 Patton hosts seventh-seeded Richland and

No. 6 Portage is at third-seeded St. Michael.

In all matchups, the team that has had fewer home games in the playoffs will be the home team.

If both teams have had the same number of home games, the higher seed is home.

This year, the top four seeds had the option to choose home or away for their first-round game.

Claysburg is the only team that chose to begin the playoffs on the road.

All playoff games will be seven innings and Saturday and Sunday games will begin at 3 p.m.
