ADAMS TOWNSHIP — Putting five hits to good use, the Clinton-Massie baseball team defeated Miami Trace 5-2 Wednesday in South Central Ohio League action at Paul Schwamberger Field.
The win puts the Falcons at 17-1 overall and 10-1 in the SCOL.
Noah Greathouse picked up his third win of the year on the mound, striking out six and allowing two unearned runs in a complete-game performance.
“Noah did a great job and we needed it,” CM coach Brian Camp said. “Burnside from Trace was just as effective.”
Clinton-Massie scored three runs in the first inning, the first on a passed ball. Later in the inning, JP Cantrell singled home two runs for a 3-0 Falcons lead.
David Poynter executed a squeeze bunt in the fifth inning to put CM up 4-2 then Luke Richardson made a “great hustling play” to give Max Murray an RBI in the sixth.
Murray scored twice while Richardson, JT Wolf and Greathouse all had a hit and scored a run.
