DEFIANCE – Through four innings of play in their ACME district baseball game, both Paulding (11-9) and Bryan (14-6) were searching for runs. Unfortunately for the Panther contingent, it was Bryan who scored eight runs in two late innings to secure an 8-2 win to push Paulding into the losers’ bracket.
It was Bryan’s pitcher Bailey Martin who kept the Panthers from taking control offensively and it was Martin’s bat that helped the Golden Bears take the lead in the fifth frame.
