Pine-Richland baseball player Daane Berezo will be playing collegiately at VCU.

Wednesday, Berezo's favorite letters were RBI and W.

Berezo's bases-loaded single with no outs in the bottom of the seventh inning snapped a tie and gave Class AAAA No. 4 Pine-Richland a 6-5 win against No. 2 Seneca Valley in a non-section game.

Berezo, a VCU recruit, went 3 for 4 and scored two runs for Pine-Richland (5-1), which has won four games in a row.

Andrew Nussbaum went 2 for 3 with two runs and Zach Grguras added a two-run single.

Seneca Valley (1-3), which defeated Pine-Richland in last year's WPIAL semifinals, dropped its third consecutive game.
