One thing is fairly certain when you reach the postseason in high school baseball – the competition gets more difficult after each victory. For the New Boston Huron Chiefs, that lesson was learned – the hard way – in one day.

After easily knocking off Summit Academy 10-0 in six innings in Saturday’s district opener at Flat Rock, the Chiefs ran into Carleton Airport in the finals. And no one had to tell Huron how good Airport was after the Jets won two regular-season games over their Huron League rivals this year.

The Chiefs didn’t have to play a perfect game, but they certainly needed to play a solid game. After scoring the game’s first run, the Huron offense disappeared and the defense, especially in the infield, was disappointing to say the least as Airport knocked out the Chiefs 8-1 in the championship game of District 55-2 at Flat Rock High School.

Airport knocked off host Flat Rock 1-0 in its first game of the day.

On the very first pitch of the game, Huron’s Devin Collins laced a single up the middle. He took second on a passed ball and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt by Zack Williams. Collins scored on a wild pitch to give the Chiefs a 1-0 lead.

Huron starting pitcher Miles Molnar walked two guys in the bottom of the first. But with two on and one out, the right-hander got a strikeout and a fly out to end the threat.

In the top of the second, Huron’s Jameson Cobb had a two-out single but was stranded.

Airport would take the lead with a three-run second inning. The big play was a suicide squeeze with runners on second and third. With the first run already in, the Chiefs went to first to try and get the batter but he beat the throw. Meanwhile, the runner from second never stopped at third and beat the throw home.

Huron threw out an Airport runner out at the plate to end the inning.

In the fourth, the Chiefs’ Elijah Scott led things off with a bloop single to center. But Huron couldn’t get anything going and the inning ended with a Huron runner getting picked off first base.

Airport scored two more runs in the bottom of the fourth to go ahead 5-1. While some of the balls were hit hard, the Chiefs weren’t making the plays they needed to make in the infield and the Jets were taking advantage of the miscues.

While the Chiefs continued to struggle at the plate, Airport added two more runs in the fifth, both coming with two outs in the inning. The Jets led 8-1 after five and that was the end of the scoring.

And the end of the Chiefs’ season.
