CELINA — The St. Marys baseball team saved its biggest hits for the last two innings as the Roughriders came back to defeat the Celina Bulldogs 5-3 in eight innings at Montgomery Field in Celina.
St. Marys (11-5, 5-1) will now travel to Sidney today for a doubleheader and entertain Defiance in a WBL contest on Tuesday, while Celina (8-8, 1-4) will entertain Paulding today.
Throughout the entire game the Riders threatened but couldn’t get that big hit for a run and it came down to their final at bat before they could come through to tie the game.
Celina’s five-run second inning broke things open in the Bulldogs’ 12-2 five-inning win over St. Marys.
Celina scored a run in the first and then five runs in the second.
The rout was on after Celina scored four more in the third. Leah Rose’s three-run home run that got just over the glove of the left fielder with two outs and two on pushed Celina’s lead to 10-0.
Back-to-back RBI doubles in the top of the fourth made it 12-0.
The Celina boys tennis team won two of the three singles matches while splitting the doubles matches to edge St. Marys in a Western Buckeye League match on Friday evening.

COLDWATER — Coldwater head baseball coach Brian Harlamert trotted towards the dugout after his post-game speech and implored someone in the press box to turn off the scoreboard at Veteran’s Field.
Harlamert likely wanted to pull the plug on evidence of his team’s eight errors and being outhit before the scoreboard changed its mind about which team actually won.
