FREMONT – After picking up a victory in its season-opener on March 25, the Fremont Ross baseball team couldn’t have predicted more than a month would pass before it won its second game of the season.
After falling behind twice Monday afternoon only to battle back, the Little Giants took the lead in the bottom of the fourth inning and held on for a 6-5 victory over Marion Harding, snapping a 13-game losing streak.
The Presidents opened the game by scoring one and three runs in the tops of the second and third innings, but the Little Giants answered each time, tying the game entering the top of the fourth inning.
In the bottom of the fourth, Ross broke through and scored twice, including the eventual game-winner.
The Little Giants belted out nine hits, eight singles and a triple by Noah Hotz. Hotz and Caleb Bennison each went 2-for-4 with an RBI and Luke O’Brien also went 2-4.
John Lotycz picked up the victory, pitching 4.1 innings giving up four hits and two walks while striking out four. The Little Giant defense didn’t help itself by committing six errors but Ross was able to hold on for the victory.
Ross (2-13 overall) travels to Findlay on Tuesday.
