CUYAHOGA FALLS 2
The Rough Riders rallied to erase a two-run deficit to capture the Struthers Division I Sectional championship on Saturday in Kent.
The Black Tigers took a 2-0 lead in the top of the second inning and the score remained in their favor until the Rough Riders knotted it 2-2 in the bottom of the fifth inning.
Kent Roosevelt responded in its next at-bats by plating three runs to take the lead and eventually the game.
On the mound for the Riders was Dean Gray, who went six innings before giving way to Phil Kaderle in the seventh. Kaderle earned his fourth save of the season. Gray improved to 5-4 on the year.
In the fifth inning, the Riders scored both of their runs with two outs when a pair of wild pitches with the bases loaded chased home Roosevelt base-runners.
In the sixth, Nate Ritchey got things started with a single and eventually scored the go-ahead run on a throwing error on a hit by Riley Day to third base.
Dean Gray then walked, setting up a two-RBI double off the bat of Bryan McKown.
The win advances Kent Roosevelt (16-10), the No. 1 seed in the district, to Thursday's district semifinal against Walsh Jesuit. The game is scheduled for a 4 p.m. start at Bob Cene Park in Youngstown.
