OVC Hunt Slips Away

LAKE SHELBYVILLE — Shelbyville baseball was in the hunt for a share of the Okaw valley Conference title, until it slipped way on Thursday in the bottom of the 6th, losing to Maroa, 5-4.

The Rams were down 1-0 in the 1st, but a 3-run rally in the 3rd gave them a lead. They extended it to 4-1 in the 5th, before Maroa cut it to a 1-run ball game in the bottom of the inning, 

Shelby couldn't get an insurance run and it came down to the bottom of the 6th. Maroa scored two runs and Shelby couldn't score in the 7th to lose, 5-4.

Shelbyville was one of five teams within a game of Monticello as the season was winding down. The loss didn't matter after all as Monticello won on Thursday and clinched the conference title.

Tyler Hendryx only gave up six hits and two walks, but Rams booted the ball three times in the 1-run loss.  Ratts got the win for Maroa controlling the Ram batters with 11 strikeouts, despite also giving up six hits and walking four. Maroa had just one error.
