Green Wave win seventh state title in baseball, first since 2006

COLUMBUS, Ohio – A game dominated by good pitching, defense and sound fundamental baseball, No. 7 Newark Catholic defeated unranked New Middletown Springfield 2-1 in the 2013 OHSAA Division IV state baseball championship Sunday afternoon at Huntington Park.

Newark Catholic (24-10) claims its seventh state title with the victory, moving into second place all-time in baseball championships. The Green Wave only trail Cincinnati Elder, which has 12 titles.

Springfield (21-8) scored in the top of the first inning on four straight singles by sophomore Ryan Kohler, senior Cody Pitzo, junior Joey Wrask and sophomore Hunter Snyder. The run would prove to be the only of the afternoon for the Tigers, despite eight hits during the game.

Newark Catholic took advantage of the eight hits it collected scoring twice. Junior Hunter Nance drove in the Green Wave’s first run in the third inning with an RBI single and in the fourth inning senior David Meurer doubled to right centerfield scoring junior Conor Keck and what was the ultimate winning run.

Springfield finished as state runner-up for the fourth time in school history and the third time in five years (2013, 2011, and 2009). The Tigers were in their sixth state tournament.

COLUMBUS, Ohio – Second-ranked Cincinnati Archbishop Moeller slugged 12 hits en route to consecutive baseball state championships and a 7-1 victory over No. 17 Cleveland St. Ignatius in the 2013 OHSAA Division I state championship game Sunday afternoon at Huntington Park.

Moeller (32-2) wins its seventh state baseball championship to tie Newark Catholic for second place all-time. Newark Catholic won its seventh championship just hours prior on Sunday in the Division IV championship game. Both schools trail all-time leader Cincinnati Elder, which has 12 state titles.

The Crusaders collected 12 hits led by senior Max Foley, who went three-for-four and junior Riley Mahan who added two more hits to the five he had in the state semifinal victory. Senior Justin Wampler drove in two runs in the game.

The Wildcats (27-7) could only manage two hits and one run against Moeller junior left-hander Zach Logue. Allowing his defense to make plays throughout the course of the game, Logue struck out four Wildcat batters.

St. Ignatius’ lone run came on an RBI single by senior Tyler Finkler. The Wildcats finish as state runners-up for the third time, the last in 2008, in their 11th state tournament appearance.

St. Ignatius and Moeller previously had met four times in the state tournament, all semifinal games. The series record began the day at 2-2, with St. Ignatius victorious in 2000 and 2008 and Moeller in 2004 and 2009. The 2013 state championship victory gives the Crusaders a 3-2 edge in the series.
