Barons pick up 11th win in a row


The Buckeye Valley baseball team continued its sizzling stretch, picking up it’s 11th straight win with Thursday’s 6-0 triumph over visiting Bishop Ready.

The shutout, which came on the heels of a dominant 21-3 win just a day earlier, was the latest in a lengthy line of convincing league wins for the Barons, who improved to a perfect 10-0 in CBL play and haven’t lost a game all month.

BV (11-3) scored all the runs it would need in the bottom of the first. Liam Popovich started things off with a single and, an out later, Jaxson Stried and Bryson Shumate connected on back-to-back doubles to make it a 2-0 game.

The Barons left the bases loaded in the inning, but it didn’t matter. They added four insurance runs in the third and the defense and pitching took care of the rest.

Popovich and Stried led the charge with two hits apiece while Shumate had a game-high two RBI.

Wilson Brown took care of business on the mound, allowing six hits while striking out six and walking one in seven scoreless innings of work. The defense, meanwhile, made just one error behind him.

Buckeye Valley returns to action Saturday against host Bishop Hartley before returning to league play Monday against visiting Columbus Academy.
