Fort LeBoeuf too much for Warren

WATERFORD — Fort LeBoeuf scored four runs in the first inning against Warren and held on for a 6-2 Region 5 baseball win on Monday over the Dragons.

“We have to find a way to be better in the first inning,” said Warren coach Andrew Morrison. “That starts with me making sure we are ready to go. We have given up runs in every first inning this year and, until our offense improves, we need to be playing ahead.

“With that being said, we had some things today that are unacceptable this late in the season — some missed signs and poor defense,” Morrison added. “LeBoeuf hit three balls to the outfield today and we gave up six runs; (that) can’t happen.”

Warren committed five errors in the game with three of Brady Berdine’s six runs allowed unearned. He allowed four hits and two walks over four innings, striking out seven. Konnor Hoffman threw 1 2/3 innings of relief without allowing a hit, and Carter Cochran got the last out.

“Aidan (Zdarko) had a really nice day at the plate again,” said Morrison. “Offensively, our approaches were better, but it’s hard to survive 12 guys left on base.”

Zdarko was 3 for 4 and Tage Wyman had two hits for Warren (1-4 in Region 5). Fort LeBoeuf is 2-3 in the region.
