Patrone fires 1-hitter as Cadiz Post 34 wins

CADIZ – Nick Patrone fired a one-hitter as Cadiz Post 34 run-ruled visiting Massillon 14-4 in seven innings of what was to be a nine-inning contest Saturday afternoon here at Mazeroski Park.

The Bellaire senior-to-be struck out 11 in six innings of mound duty and only allowed a sixth-inning single by Tyrus Jones. However, he walked eight. Jonathan Borkoski fanned two in his inning of work.

Harrison Central senior-to-be Dalton Rutter accounted for four of Post 34s 14 hits. He singled three times and tripled. Buckeye Local’s Chase Hopkins singled twice and recorded a pair of doubles. Rashaen Mitchell, a recent Harrison Central grad, laced a trio of one-base raps.

Cadiz improved to 7-9 on the season. Massillon dipped to 3-11.

Post 34 hosts Wheeling Monday before visiting St. Clairsville Tuesday. Both games have 6 p.m. starts.
