Woodcock hammers Marple into Delco playoff mix

From the Daily Times posted 7/25/2019

The Delco League playoff field is set, and emphatically so thanks to Corey Woodcock.

Woodcock clubbed a grand slam in the bottom of the fifth inning to make the difference in a 5-3 win for Marple over Springfield, booking the Black Sox the sixth and final playoff spot.

The playoffs get underway Friday, with Marple visiting No. 3 seed Upper Darby in the first game of their best-of-3 tilt. Narberth, the fourth seed, will host No. 5 Chester Friday. Regular-season champ Wayne and No. 2 Concord earn first-round byes.

Eddie Gallagher got the win, tossing a complete game for Marple with five strikeouts. Andrew Smith added three hits.
