LEROY -- The host Bucks defeated Lake City 3-1 in Saturday’s semifinal Division 4 district baseball game and mercied Benzie Central 12-0 in five innings for the title.
“We had good pitching today,” Pine River coach Shawn Ruppert said. “Dillon (Blood) and Jordan (Nelson) did a nice job. That first game we wouldn’t have won without Dillon. We didn’t hit the ball. I’m glad we woke up the second game. Our pitching is where it started.”
