Poor defense dooms Marion in playoffs

SOLON – The Marion Indians’ inexperience caught up with them when they needed it the least in a Class 3A district championship baseball game Monday.

Marion committed five errors, leading to seven unearned runs in an 8-3 loss to Duqubue Wahlert to end the season at 24-17.

The Golden Eagles (20-19) advanced to the substate final at 7 p.m. Wednesday at DeWitt Central.

“I’m not shocked, I’m disappointed,” Marion Coach Steve Fish said. “I love this team. They’re fun to coach. I think we had six sophomores out there and some quality seniors.”

The Indians started strong, taking a 3-0 lead in the second inning.



Kuhn tosses 1-hitter for Marion

SOLON - David Kuhn pitched a one-hitter as the Marion Indians bopped Solon, 9-1, in the opening round of the Class 3A district baseball tournament at Solon Friday night.

Kuhn tossed a complete game and struck out eight batters.

Marion raised its record to 24-16 with the convincing victory. The Indians will face Dubuque Wahlert (19-19) in the district finals Monday at 7 p.m. at Solon. The substate finals will be played next Wednesday night at a site to be determined.

Marion scored first against Solon on a single by Maverick Miller and an RBI double by John Carstensen.
