TC speeds past Norwalk
NORWALK - Nate Hoyda and Jeffrey Crawford have had a knack for coming up with big hits for Columbian this season.
On Tuesday, it was Hoyda's speed that set up the late go-ahead run, and Crawford who drove that run in.
In the top of the seventh inning at Norwalk, with the game tied at 5, Hoyda led off the inning with a walk. He stole second, then - after Tyler Gillig flied out - stole third.
At the plate was Crawford, who had scored a run and walked twice, but was looking for his first hit of the game.
Crawford grounded a ball into left field for an RBI double. He then moved to third on an error, and scored later in the inning when the Norwalk catcher committed an error.
Norwalk came back with a run in the bottom of the inning, but Hoyda was able to shut the door and preserve a 7-6 Northern Ohio League victory.
Columbian had just six hits in the victory, capitalizing on four Trucker errors.
Hoyda got the win in relief, pitching the final 1 2/3 innings. He gave up two hits and two runs, but neither run was earned. He was the third pitcher used by coach Curt Mellott. Aaron Sostaric started the game and gave up one earned run on four hits in 4 1/3 inning.
Nathaniel Gilmer drove in two runs for the Tornadoes.
Joseph Hinckley had two hits, scored two runs and drove in a run for the Truckers.
Josh Richards took the loss in relief for Norwalk.

Vera had two hits and scored a run for Calvert.
Galion outlasts BC
NEW WASHINGTON - A regulation varsity game couldn't decide things between Buckeye Central and Galion. A regulation major league game couldn't decide things. Ten innings, 11 innings, still no winner. Finally in the 12th, Galion put up a number BC couldn't answer. The Tigers tallied four in the frame, and although the Bucks got two back, it wasn't enough in a 6-4 Galion win.
Buckeye Central's Austin Lutz and Galion's Chad Karnes both threw gems, but neither was able to stick around until the end. Lutz went nine innings, allowed seven hits and one run while striking out eight. Karnes through the maximum 10 innings, allowed six hits and a run while striking out 15.
BC (6-6, 2-3) had four doubles, hit by Jordan Herrnstein, Tanner Zaebst, Eric Hanes and Lutz. Herrnstein, Zaebst, Seth Ollis and Mike Blackford had RBIs.

Stockaders fall in extras
OLD FORT - Old Fort scored a run in the third inning against North Baltimore, and Stockaders pitcher Brandon Tittle made that run stand up through six innings, putting OF three outs away from its first Midland Athletic League win of the season.
