Warren falls on the road at McLane
EDINBORO — Defending District 10 champion General McLane got off to a lead against visiting Warren on Wednesday and never relented.
Playing in its third game in three days, the Dragons fell, 11-1, in the non-region game.
“This is exactly the type of team, if not the team, we will see in the District 10 4A playoffs,” said Warren coach Jon Sitler. “We are much better than what we showed this game, but we have to go out and prove that.”
McLane scored in five of six innings, including three runs in the bottom of the sixth to win by the 10-run rule. This is the first loss for Warren this season that’s been by more than one or two runs.
Ellie Lobdell was 2-for-2 with a solo home run in the top of the fourth to cut the lead to 6-1, but Warren had just two hits the rest of the game — a leadoff single by Alexis Nyquist and a double by Gracie Wood.
Warren (12-6 overall) hosts Meadville on Thursday in the regular-season finale.
