Sometimes a little bad luck or a mistake can snowball into something much, much bigger.
That's just what happened to Port Clinton on Saturday in their 10-0 loss to Norwalk in the Division II Sectional Semifinal at Norwalk High School. The Truckers took control of the game in the first inning, scoring seven runs and adding another three in the second to account for their 10 runs.
In the first, Norwalk's Joe Hinkley reached on a single before three consecutive bunts, the first two being base hits, plated a run to give the Truckers a 2-0 lead. Avery Albright singled to pushed the lead to 3-0 and Marcus McClain's two-run single gave Norwalk a five-run advantage. Hinkley then connected on a double to make it 7-0, effectively putting the game away.
The Redskins do have some games remaining, the final ones for six of their players: Zak Floro, Ian Kyle, Austin Krupp, Kody Ratliff, Dylan Webb and Joe Zam.
