Easton, MD - The Easton baseball team advanced to the sweet 16 in the state tournament after defeating Kent Island 9-3 Monday afternoon. The Warriors jumped out to a huge lead thanks to a brilliant performance on the mound by Matt Barnes. He was aided by run support early, as Easton held a 6-3 lead all the way to the bottom of the 6th.
The Warriors would add on three more runs from there as they coast to a 9-3 win. They now advance to play at Parkside on Wednesday.
