TORONTO, OH- If you’ve ever talked to a baseball coach, there are two things you cannot do in baseball: walk hitters and make errors.  Unfortunately for Coach Nocera and the East Palestine Bulldogs, Monday they had six in each of those categories.  The Bulldogs watched the game slip away early and couldn’t recover in an 11-1 loss to Toronto on Monday.

Toronto got things started in the first inning. Sninchak drove in one when he singled.  Toronto scored five runs in the second inning. Gulczynski and Sninchak both drove in runs in the frame.

Clegg was credited with the victory for Toronto. He lasted four innings, allowing six hits and one run while striking out two and walking one. Herrick threw one inning in relief out of the bullpen.

Brady Kridler took the loss for East Palestine. He went one and one-third innings, allowing four runs on two hits.  Offensively, Sean Helpy led East Palestine with two hits in two at-bats.

Toronto tallied eight hits on the day. Sninchak and Chetock all managed multiple hits for Toronto. Gulczynski led Toronto with three stolen bases, as they ran wild on the base paths with 11 stolen bases.

The Bulldogs will try to even the score on Tuesday at Next Level Complex.  The game begins at 5pm.
