Alex Barker held Conococheague to one run on three hits in 5 1/3 innings, and Conococheague pitchers walked nine hitters as Delaware state champion Newark National defeated the Maryland state champs 7-1 on Saturday at the Mid-Atlantic Region Little League Baseball Tournament in Bristol, Conn. “He's a pretty nice pitcher,” Conococheague manager Pat Taylor said of Barker. “We looked at a lot of fastballs down the middle of the plate. We found ourselves in a lot of two-strike counts and were a little passive today, just a little hesitant at the plate and maybe guessing at pitches.” Delaware improved to 2-0 - it beat District of Columbia champion Northwest Washington 16-2 on Friday - while Conococheague fell to 0-2 following Friday's 7-1 loss to New York state champion Great Kills American.
