Tribe drops added game

Local roundup


COLDWATER, Ohio — The Indians got a break from their postseason run with an added game, but their bats couldn’t carry them to victory.

Fort Recovery High School’s baseball team dropped an added game 4-2 to Coldwater on Monday evening.

The game that broke up an otherwise five-day stretch without a game, was played at the same site where the Division IV district opener against ninth-seeded Parkway will take place.

The Indians (11-12) scored both of their runs in the first inning on doubles by Caden Homan and Caden Grisez.

Rex Leverette only gave up one run in the bottom of the first inning on Braylen Harlamert’s double.

Coldwater (23-5) claimed the lead in the second inning off of Troy Homan. A single and a walk put runners on base before a sacrifice bunt put both in scoring position. A ground out and a single then gave the Cavaliers a 3-2 lead.

A final run scored in the fifth as M Welsch smacked an RBI single off of Alex Gaerke.
