Taylor's mother is a Trenton native and Wesclin graduate, and his grandparents, Phil and Linda Mueller, live in New Baden.

    Trenton advances in CCBL playoffs

    The higher seeds held form this past Sunday in the opening round of the Clinton County Baseball League playoffs, as three-seed Beckemeyer held off Aviston 7-6 in ten innings, and four-seed Trenton beat Breese 5-1.

    Waiting in the semifinals are top seed Bartelso for Trenton, and regular season runner-up Centralia for Beckemeyer.

    On Sunday, Trenton's Chad Klein belted a two-run homer in the first inning and the Miners plated three more in the third to supply all the scoring starter and winner Mike Pagano would need. Pagano pitched seven innings before giving way to Cale Johnson, who pitched the final two innings for the save.

    Paul Ritzheimer doubled in the first ahead of Klein's clout. In the third, Michael Klein doubled home a run and Jay Wellen hit a two-ru single for the Miners. Ritzheimer had two hits on the day. Chase Klein, Jim Ritzheimer, and Mike Scott all had hits for Trenton. Colin Detmer doubled home Breese's only run.

    Trenton will travel to Bartelso for a 1 p.m. matchup Sunday, while Beckemeyer heads to Centralia. The winners will meet in a best-of-three championship series.
