BASEBALL

Cinderella season over for gritty Southview

BOWLING GREEN — Southview’s surprise run in the Ohio Division I baseball tournament came to an end Friday, one win short of a first trip for the Cougars to the state semifinals. North Royalton touched Cougars lefty starter Tyler Stambaugh for an unearned run in the third inning, added a run in the fourth, and Bears pitcher Noah Sasse escaped jams in four straight innings to survive for a 3-1 win over Southview (18-11) in a regional final played at Bowling Green’s Steller Field.

It wasn’t enough, though, and Bryan’s unlikely excursion through the postseason is over one inning short of the state tournament. The Golden Bears never scored in 10 innings, losing 1-0.
