Ohio Christian Baseball Posts Third Win
The Ohio Christian University Trailblazers won its third game of the season in convincing fashion by defeating its NCCAA Mid-East Region opponents, The Freewill Bible Baptist Flames by the score of 10-0. The Trailblazers were again led by a stellar pitching performance by freshman, Steven Vogelgesang (Cincinnati, OH). Vogelgesang pitched a complete game two hit shutout and struck out seven. Trailblazer Head Coach, Bruce Crabtree said "Steven was quite effective again in pitching his way to his second win of the season. He continues to show strong leadership on the mound."
