May 15—TRAVERSE CITY — The beginning of a weekend of downstate visitors looked sour for Traverse City Central but some late inning magic helped out.

The Trojans earned a 12-2 victory over Muskegon Oakridge in five innings at TC Central Friday thanks to a seven run bottom half of the fifth.

Oakridge opened the game scoring a run in the top of the first inning and held TCC scoreless through two innings.

Dominic Palamara tied the game in the third squeezing in a run when Owen Dawson stole second in a first-and-third situation.

The Trojans put up four runs in the fourth to take a 5-1 lead before allowing a run in the top of the fifth that made it 5-2.

Cue the explosion.

Alex Schmitt opened the bottom of the fifth with a double and the rout was on. Back-to-back walks put more men on base and Schmitt scored on a wild pitch that walked Carson Rokos.

The Trojans eyed out three more walks and smacked four more singles in the inning to put up seven runs and enact the mercy rule at 12-2.

Ethan Schweitzer tossed three innings of no-hit ball with three strikeouts to earn the win. J.J. Dutmers came to pitch in relief and allowed five hits and a run while holding the lead.

Dawson hit a RBI double and had two RBI total. Joining him was Schmitt with two hits and two RBI, Josef Meyer with two hits and a RBI while Rokos scored twice. Palamara walked three times and scored three runs while stealing three bases.

The Trojans have two games Saturday. TC Central will host Grand Blanc at 10 a.m. and play Forest Hills Eastern in the afternoon.
