Genoa falls in Division III regional baseball championship


ELIDA -- Too many walks and errors and not enough clutch hitting undid Genoa today in an 8-1 loss to Bloom Carroll in a Division III regional final baseball contest.

The Comets committed six errors and walked nine. They left bases loaded without scoring a run in the third and sixth innings.

Casey Gose had three of Genoa's eight hits.

Starter Alex Hayes was pulled after 3 2/3 innings. He walked three, allowed eight hits, and hit two batters.

Bloom Carroll, making its third straight regional final appearance, led 6-0 after Seth Pazke's three-run double in the top of the fourth.
