Coldwater wins 6th Baseball State Championship, tops CHCA 4-2
COLUMBUS, Ohio – Second-ranked Coldwater jumped out to a three run lead in the top of the first inning and never looked back, defeating No. 3 Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy 4-2 in the Ohio High School Athletic Association Division III baseball state championship game Saturday afternoon at Huntington Park in Columbus.
The 2014 title for Coldwater was its sixth in baseball, and first since 1992. It was the 19th overall state tournament appearance for the Cavaliers (29-4), having last been to the final four in 2009.
Coldwater’s first batter of the game reached on an error, before being sacrificed over. After a one out walk, senior Grant Muhlenkamp tripled to right-center driving in two runs. Sophomore Adam Klosterman would drive Muhlenkamp in, giving the Cavaliers a 3-0 lead. Coldwater would score once more in the third on a RBI sacrifice fly by senior Mitch Heyne.
Muhlenkamp’s contributions came not only at the plate but on the mound as well, throwing five innings to earn the win, his second of the state tournament. The right-hander picked up the victory in Coldwater’s 3-2, 10-inning, semifinal win over Wheelersburg. Thursday semifinal starter, junior Derek Thobe earned Saturday’s save with two innings of scoreless work.
After allowing the three runs early, CHCA senior pitcher Blake Swanger settled in, allowing only one more run and three more hits in the game, finishing with nine strikeouts. In seven innings of work, Swanger surrendered only one earned run.
CHCA (29-3) was able to plate two runs in the game, scoring in the third on two hits and an error by Coldwater, and in the fifth inning on an RBI double by Chase Murray. The senior outfielder led the Eagles on offense, going 3-for-3 with two RBI.
In its second state tournament appearance, CHCA finishes as runner-up for the first time. The Eagles had previously reached the final four in 2005.
