POLAND, OH- As of late the Poland Bulldog bats were as hot as any team in the state as the Big Blue Machine had 31 RBI coming into Thursday’s game against Austintown Fitch.

Enter Fitch’s “Killer B’s”  Brett Porter and Bobby Cavalier.  The two combined on the bump for a two-hitter against the offensive juggernaut.  Poland watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in a 5-0 loss to Austintown-Fitch on Thursday. Austintown-Fitch scored on a single by Casey Bokesch and a groundout RBI by Josh Corll in the second inning.
