Lancaster, OH - The Barons made it through day one with a pair of victories over OU Zanesville and OU Lancaster. Leading the way offensively was Matt Beggin (Lima Senior) going 5 for 7 on the day with two home runs and three singles.
Pitching was also key as Jacob Nichols (Ada) and Mike Allen (Ada) both turned in strong relief efforts of starter Paul Geuy (Benjamin Logan) in game one. Then in game two, Tyler Deam (Triad) threw a gutsy complete game helping to conserve arms for a difficult stretch of four games in two days.
The Barons return to action Sunday as they will take on UC Clermont at 1pm and with a win would move in to the championship game versus MU Hamilton whom the Barons would need to beat twice to win the ORC Crown!
