LEROY\u00a0\u2014 A season of improvement ended a week ago for Reed City. Right-hander Logan Straub threw a strong complete game against Mason County Central on May 31, but it wasn\u2019t enough in a 2-1 loss for the Coyotes in a Division 3 predistrict game at Pine River. The season ends for Reed City (14-21). Straub only allowed two hits, but the Spartans used two errors to score their lone runs in the first inning. \u201cLogan pitched well,\u201d Reed City coach Marty Shaffer said. \u201cHe did that all year long. We just didn\u2019t hit the ball.\u201d Cameron Austin had two hits for the Coyotes. Alex Brummel and Derrick Rasor also had hits. Reed City, trailing 2-0, rallied in the bottom of the seventh, but fell short. Rasor reached base after getting hit by the pitch to open the inning. He advanced on Austin\u2019s single and scored on a double steal. But the tying run was stranded in scoring position when the game ended. The game took less than 90 minutes to play. The Spartans advance with a 22-8 record. Trevor Carrier was the winning pitcher. \u201cHe did a wonderful job throwing strikes and getting people out, that\u2019s what we needed from him,\u201d Spartan coach Don Thomas said.\u201d\u2019He\u2019s been our ace all year.\u201d The loss ended the season for the Coyotes. Shaffer indicated his team would be playing in a summer league and will come out with a schedule next week. \u201cI think we\u2019ll play Tuesdays and Thursdays, maybe a couple of Sundays,\u201d Shaffer said.
