GALION — After suffering their first loss of the young season, the Galion Tigers baseball team bounced back in a big way on Tuesday evening by defeating the visiting Bucyrus Redmen, 11-0.
The Tigers improve to 3-1 overall and remain at 1-1 in Mid-Ohio Athletic Conference Red Division play. Bucyrus now sits at 2-2 overall and has yet to open the Northern-10 Athletic Conference season.
Will Donahue got the nod on the mound for the Tigers and was in control throughout the shortened, five inning game. Donahue went the entire five innings, allowing just one single while walking one batter and fanning three. Donahue would also help his cause at the plate, going 2/3 with a single and a double and scoring twice.
Mac Spears would also contribute big in the Galion win with a perfect 3/3 at the plate. Spears’ three singles would drive in two runs and Spears himself would score twice. Devin Baughn finished the game 2/3 at the dish with two singles, 2 RBI and a run scored. Kade Dyer belted two singles in a 2/3 night at the plate, knocking in two runners as well. Ryan Talbott had a multi-hit game with two singles and scored three times in the win.
Galion, as a team, would record 11 hits in 22 official at bats for 11 runs batted in. Four Tigers’ hitters would walk, two would strike out and Galion left four runners stranded against Bucyrus. On the base path, Galion would steal eight bases and in the field, they committed just one error.
Bucyrus had no runs on one hit and two errors.
The Galion squad will be back in action again on Wednesday April 5 when league play continues at Marion Pleasant. Another road trip awaits the Tigers on Saturday April 8 when they travel to Ontario for a doubleheader with the Warriors.
