Red Land's Kaden Peifer launced a three-run home run and pitched one inning Friday en route to Team Pennsylvania's win over Maryland in the Big 26 Baseball Classic. 

Four Sentinel-area players competed in Game 1 of the 2021 Big 26 Baseball Classic at FNB Field Friday night, representing Team Pennsylvania in its 10-6 win over Team Maryland.

He added a base-on-balls and later scored in the fifth to conclude his evening in the box at 1-for-2.
