Van Buren gets past Calvert in 8

Willard shuts down Chieftains
BASCOM – Willard flashed ahead with a run in the top of the first inning, but then couldn’t get much else working against Hopewell-Loudon starter Bryan Scherger. The Chieftains, though, couldn’t get any offense of its own going. The score remained 1-0 into the sixth when Willard was able to get some insurance runs.
Hopewell-Loudon finally found its offense in the bottom of the seventh, but by then it was too late and Willard (2-8) claimed a 5-2 victory.
Scherger took the tough-luck loss, allowing three hits over six innings, and three runs, none of which were earned.
Jordan Stewart and Ryan Depinet scored runs for the Chieftains (5-11).
Comets blast off against Redmen
GENOA – A five-run first inning was just the beginning of a rough day for Dustin Smith and his Fostoria baseball team. The Comets tallied runs is each of the game’s five innings and four Redmen errors played a role in a 15-5 Genoa win.

It wasn’t all bad for Fostoria. Hunter Abell homered and Casey Kitchen laced two doubles. Kaleb Bemis and Alex Jackson added base hits.
Rams roll over Presidents
MARION – Upper Sandusky was sitting comfortably with a 5-1 lead when the sixth inning dawned against Marion Harding. But the Rams were not satisfied and didn’t really feel like playing a seventh inning. They tacked on six runs in the sixth to end the game with an 11-1 victory.
