Lima, OH: With thier season on the line and on the brink of elimination, the Lima Locos came through in a huge Game 2 of the GLSCL Semi Finals with a 9-5 win over the Licking County Settlers. The win forces a Game 3 Friday at Simmons Field. The winner will advance to the GLSCL Championship series against the winner of the Cincinnati Steam and Southern Ohio Copperheads, which is tied at one game a piece.
The Locos were led offensively by TJ Losby and Cesar Loiz. Losby went 3 for 4 with 1 RBI on a solo home run and scored three times. Loiz went 2 for 3 with an RBI and a run. Stuart Eisler also had a two run home run to add on to the advantage. Loiz also was great defensively for the Locos, as he would rob a Jake Fields home run effort. Loiz robbing Fields saved a three run home run that would have tied the game had the play not been made. At the time, those three runs would have tied the game at 4.
