Kevin Large gave Ford a big boost in the Macomb Area Conference White Division baseball race.

The sophomore right-hander struck out eight and did not allow an earned run in 6.1 innings as he led the Falcons to a 6-3 victory over visiting Romeo on Wednesday.

The Bulldogs had a lot of base path traffic, and Large faced multiple full counts, Ford coach Derek Ganfield pointed out.

But Large was equal to the challenge.

“He battled,” Ganfield said. “They stranded a lot of runners.”

A four-run fourth inning provided the offense Large needed.

Justin Michalski had two hits, stole two bases and scored twice in the contest. He drove in a run, too.

Adam Corbley drove in two runs and scored one. Corbley, sophomore Pierce Banks (run) and senior Jordan Luzod had a hit apiece as Ford posted it second victory over Romeo this week.

Large joined the Ford varsity late last season, and stepped into the starting rotation this season.

DAKOTA 7, GROSSE POINTE SOUTH 6: Pitcher Maurice Moon went 4 1/3 innings on the mound, tossing seven strikeouts, and Cole Sanderson went two innings in relief, tossing three strikeouts for the win.
