TIFFIN — For the past six years, the Defiance Bulldogs have been the unquestioned kings of the Western Buckeye League.
But not on Friday.
Not with the way Chace Culver pitched. Not with the way Johnny Crawford, Alex Koch, Dom Campos and Marshall Gerlach played defense. And not with the way everyone in lineup slots 1 through 9 hit the ball and ran the bases.
TIFFIN — One streak ended, but another streak continues.
Wapakoneta Redskin junior pitcher Johnny Crawford watched his consecutive scoreless streak end when he surrendered his first run in 45 innings when the Padua Franciscan Bruins scored in the bottom of the second inning, but the Redskins continued their winning streak in the state playoffs with a 7-1 win.
