May 20, 2021

Kenston loses a heartbreaker 10-9 in 9 innings to Solon in a very well-played game in tournament play. Solon took a 3-0 lead by jumping on Kenston starter junior captain Jake Vasil in the top half of the 1st inning with 4 hits, including 2 doubles by McQuaide and A. Blashka. Kenston reclaimed the lead in the bottom of the 2nd inning, keyed by a 2-run home-run blast by junior captain Ryan Miller. The Comets took the lead back in the top of the 3rd, with the big hit being a 2-run double to the 8-hole hitter Patriarco. Kenston was down 8-7 in the bottom of the 7th with 1 out when senior captain Ryan Gilbert hit a tape measure home-run to left center, estimated to travel 415 feet, to tie the game and send it into extra innings. Solon plated 2 runs in the top half of the 9th inning, keyed by A. Blashka’s RBI single and Bermen’s RBI triple. Kenston had the tying run on 3rd in the bottom of the 9th, but could not get the run in. Kenston out-hit Solon 15-13, led by Miller’s 4 hits, and 2 hits apiece from Gilbert, senior captain Michael Persichetti, senior captain Alec Kolenic, and sophomore Nikko Georgiou. The Comets were led by Gottlieb, Barmen, and Patriarco with 3 hits apiece, and A. Blashka with 2 hits. Solon reliever Adzema was the beneficiary and pitched up the win, while Kenston sophomore reliver Parker Munday suffered the tough loss in relief. Kenston drops to 17-10 overall on the year.
