SCOTTVILLE — Hart’s baseball team saw its season come to an end Saturday at Mason County Central with a 10-0 loss to Reed City in the MHSAA Division 3 district finals.

The Pirates managed just one hit, by Kory Charron, while the Coyotes pounded out 10 safeties.

Hart gave up a five-run first inning, but recovered to pull out an exciting 10-8 victory over Evart in the semifinal game earlier in the day.

Blake Weirich settled down after that bad first inning, pitching 5 2/3 innings and registered eight strike outs.

Ty Schlukebir relieved Weirich and wound up picking up the win with only 1 1/3 innings of work.

Hart had started the game scoring three runs in the top of the first inning, only to see the Wildcats answer with that five-run bottom half to take a 5-3 lead.

After three scoreless innings followed, Charron delievered a big two-run double in the fifth  to tie the score 5-5.

The Pirates took a 6-5 lead in the sixth when Brandon VanderZanden hit a one-run single.

Evart, however, was able to come back and scored twice in the bottom half of the sixth to reclaim the lead, 7-6.

But the Pirates responded with a four-run seventh inning to take the lead for good, 10-7.

Carter Ramseyer paced the Pirates at the plate with three hits. Weirich and VanderZanden each had two hits while Charron, Logan Purdy and Kyan Clark added one apiece.
