They played better than a #10 seed.  Piqua pitched well, showed patience, executed, and came from two runs down to nip Northmont in the fifth inning (Hunter Steinke, below), 4-3.  Brad Lavy called it, "A better tournament win."

For the second time in three days Troy and Tipp swapped miles and outcomes along I-75.  After a sloppy loss on Tuesday, Troy atoned with its best baseball Thursday and a 2-hit shutout win by junior Andrew Helman. Read more about the game in Friday's Press Pros.

Piqua squandered a big early lead, found a way to get back in the game...and won it with a five-run sixth to beat Tipp City Friday, 12-9. Read about the game, and a reality of contemporary baseball, in today's Press Pros feature.

Until the hitting catches up Troy's pitching will have to do.  And who's complaining?  Junior Andrew Helman struck out 13 and limited Greenville to just 4 hits to help the Trojans sweep the MVL series with Greenville. Read about the game.

Exclamation point...Tipp's Stanley Clyne adds the exclamation point to his career-high 34-point night, and a 78-56 win and series sweep Saturday over the Piqua Indians. Read about the game in Sunday's Press Pros.
