Cody Montgomery knocked in four runs, Drew Colvin limited Christ Church to five hits and Lewisville advanced to the Class A baseball Upper State championship with a 10-1 victory over Christ Church at Cavalier Field Monday night.
Montgomery had run-scoring singles in the third and fifth inning and a two-run single in the fourth for the Lions, who will host the Upper State championship Friday and have to be beaten twice by the survivor of Wednesday’s losers bracket game.
Christ Church will host the losers’ bracket game against either McBee or Fox Creek.
Colvin allowed a run in the second on a double by Will Turrentine and a single by Andrew Judkins. Colvin struck out five and didn’t anyone, although he did hit a batter.

“Hats off to him. He was great,” Christ Church coach J.B. Barwick said. “We knew what we were going to get, and we just didn’t execute.”
Lewisville scored a run in the first when Evan Sisk and Montgomery executed a double steal, with Sisk coming home on the play.
The Lions scored two in the third, four in the fourth and three in the fifth to break the game open.
Sisk was 3-for-3 with two RBIs, Trey Keels was 2 for 3 with two RBIs and Thomas Brannen reached base three times and scored twice for the Lions.
“They were good tonight,” Barwick said. “They did a great job of putting the ball in play, and it just wasn’t our night.
“We’re still playing baseball, and this is extra free baseball for us. We’re young. Most people don’t realize that, so we’re good.”
