SIDNEY — Coming off a loss to Legacy Christian Thursday, the Lehman Catholic baseball team faced a tough Fort Recovery team Friday at Lehman.

Both runners scored when Thwaits lined a double down the line.

Fort Recovery made it 3-0 in the fifth.

Kade Wendel walked, stole second and moved to third on Will Homan’s single.

Thwaits had a sacrifice fly to score Wendel with what would prove to be the winning run.

Drew Muhlenkamp and Riley Post combined on a three-hitter for Fort Recovery, striking out, walking fiveand hitting three batters.

In the Lehman fifth, Tyler Lachey led off with a single and Post came in for Muhlenkamp. After Alex Keller hit into a fielder’s choice, Bryce Kennedy was hit by a pitch.

Jared Magoteaux, who had two of Leman’s three hits, lined a double down the left-field line to score Keller and Kennedy and make it 3-2.

But, Post struck out the next four batters and Lehman was unable to get a runner past first base the rest of the game.

The Cavaliers (6-5) will host Belmont in a doubleheader on Saturday.
