Although he was pleased with his team's 4-2 start, Central Crossing High School baseball coach Scott Todd said the Comets could have had an even better record to begin the season.

Central Crossing led visiting Olentangy Liberty 7-3 entering the seventh inning April 6 before the Patriots scored five unearned runs to pull out an 8-7 win.

The Comets were 4-2 overall and 0-2 in the OCC-Central Division before playing Hilliard Davidson on April 12.

"Those records are deceiving because we should be 5-1 and 1-1 in the league," Todd said before playing Davidson. "Our pitching has been outstanding. Our hitting hasn't been great, but we've been coming through with clutch hits at the right time. We're struggling with our defense."

Todd said Brandon Worthington pitched well in a 4-1 loss at Liberty on April 5.

Through six games, Deric Williamson was hitting .438 with eight RBI. Worthington was batting .429, followed by Bernee Sanchez (.368) and James Pearce (.353).

Grove City rebounds from league loss

Grove City opened OCC-Ohio play with a 5-3 loss at Reynoldsburg on April 4, but bounced back to beat the visiting Raiders 6-0 on April 6 behind winning pitcher Nick Erwin.

Erwin allowed three hits in a complete-game effort and helped his cause with a two-run home run in the fourth. Blake Griffith added a solo homer in the fourth.

Last season, Grove City lost to Reynoldsburg 10-2 in its second league contest then won its final 12 OCC-Ohio games to win the title at 13-1.

The Greyhounds also defeated visiting Davidson 13-0 in five innings April 7.

Grove City was 5-2 overall and 1-1 in the OCC-Ohio before playing Groveport on April 12.

"Our hitting is getting closer every day," coach Ryan Alexander said. "Our pitching and defense have carried us thus far in the season."

Alexander said Erwin, Griffith and Hayden Cartt have sparked the offense.
