Ironmen victorious thanks to Brubaker’s strong start and timely hits

The Champion City Kings (11-13) came out firing, but couldn’t hang on to the lead, ending up on the losing side of a 5-2 ballgame against the Lorain County Ironmen (10-15) on Friday at Davidson Stadium.

Lorain County took the lead in the sixth inning on an RBI single by Kyle Chontos.

The Ironmen were led by Nate Langhals’s hitting. Langhals went 3-4, drove in one and scored three runs. He homered in the first inning and singled in the sixth and eighth innings.

It was a welcome site for a team tied for the worst batting average in the league (.213)

Jake Bennett paced the Champion City Kings at the plate. Bennett went 2-5 and scored one run. He tripled in the first inning and singled in the seventh inning.

J T Brubaker recorded his third win of the year for the Lorain County Ironmen. He allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings. Brubaker struck out five, walked two and gave up seven hits.

It was a homecoming game of sorts for Brubaker, growing up in nearby Tecumseh and he didn’t disappoint.

Luke Mamer was charged with his second loss of the year. He lasted just six innings, walked none, struck out three, and allowed three runs.

It was the Kings’ sixth straight loss.

The teams will play game number two of the three game series Saturday at 7:35. Sam Clarke will get the ball for the Ironmen.
