The Gahanna Lincoln High School baseball team earned a spot in a Division I regional final with a 10-1 win over Marysville in a semifinal May 30 at Dublin Coffman.

The Lions improved to 21-9 and will play Hilliard Darby or Thomas Worthington on May 31 at Coffman, with the winner advancing to a state semifinal June 7 at Huntington Park.

The Monarchs finished 22-8.

Senior Alec Tuohy, who will play at the University at Buffalo, helped lead the Lions on the mound and at the plate. He went six innings, allowing seven hits, striking out six and walking one.

Tuohy opened the scoring with a home run to lead off the second inning. He added a sacrifice fly in the third to help his team build a 4-0 lead and singled in the fifth and sixth innings.

"He's just stepped up his game in this tournament and has been tremendous for us," Gahanna coach Mike Shade said. "He's playing like a senior, he's playing like a leader on the ballclub, which he is."

Third baseman Shawn Martin singled twice and had two RBI for Gahanna, and designated hitter Alex Delp singled twice and drove in a run. Shortstop Christian Chiero had an RBI double in the sixth.

Marysville, which left the bases loaded in the first inning, scored its run in the sixth when Matt Mulholland singled, moved to second on a wild pitch and scored on Matt McCoy's double.

Kyle Hites singled twice for the Monarchs.

Sophomore pitcher Aron Mowery took the loss. He went four innings, allowing five runs on five hits with two strikeouts and a walk.

"We needed a couple big hits with guys on," Marysville coach John Carder said. "It might have changed the momentum here in the dugout, but we didn't get those hits and left a couple guys stranded and that deflated the sails a little bit."

Gahanna last reached a regional final in 2008, losing to West Chester Lakota West 16-11.
