  Boardman All-Stars Top Hamilton, 5-4, To Claim State Championship  
  August 8, 2019 Edition  
     CAMBRIDGE, OH.---Boardman Community Baseball’s 9-11 all-star team posted four straight wins and claimed the Ohio Little League title, topping Hamilton, 5-4, in the championship game last Sunday at Robert Wagstaff Field.
      Boardman jumped on Hamilton early when Collin Resetar opened the second inning with an infield single. Cooper Martz came on to pinch run and Alex Battaglia executed a perfect bunt to put runners on first and third base with no outs. Cameron Ganser then singled to right field driving in Martz and moving Battaglia to third, and Ryan Mitchell followed with another single and that plated Battaglia to give the Boardman stars a 2-0 lead.
      Chris Vass layed down a sacrifice bunt to move Mitchell and Ganser to second and third. Vincent Butto singled both runners home and the lead grew to 4-0. Ryan Smith added another hit, scoring Butto for what proved to be the winning run.
      Resetar held Hamilton at bay the rest of the game on the mound, scattering six hits and allowing four earned runs. He struck out 11 batters.
      Boardman threatened to break the game open in the fourth inning when Smith singled to center, but Gabe Hammerton was thrown out at home trying to score from second.
      Hamilton tacked on three runs in the fifth to cut Boardman’s margin to 5-4 going into the bottom of the sixth inning when Resetar induced a fielders choice to Chris Vass at second base for the final out.
      Boardman 17 - New Albany 0
      Resetar pitched five innings of one-hit ball for the Spartans, and Smith came on and worked a perfect sixth frame to preserve the shutout.
      Boardman’s offense was paced by Resetar and Smith who had three hits each and combined for 8 RBI’s. Butto and Dominick Gordon added two hits each. Smith, Butto and Gabe Hammerton each scored three runs on the night. The victory advanced Boardman to semifinal play against Cambridge.
      Boardman 5 - Cambridge 3
      Anthony Groner pitched a 5-hit complete game only surrendering three earned runs, and also was 2-3 at the plate with a pair of RBI’s.
      The score was tied at 3-3 in the fifth with one out, when Hammerton doubled to left to start a rally. Smith followed with a double driving in Hammerton, and Groner followed with a single to drive in Smith. Vass, Gordon and Ryan Mitchell were also credited with hits.
      Perfect In Tourney Play
      BCB’s 9-11 all-stars posted a perfect record in tournament play. They went 4-0 in the Chuc Schafer Memorial Tournament, 3-0 in district play and 4-0 in the state tourney.
