Baseball: Billygoats near regular-season title
ROYALTON — Ben Boser pitched six innings in relief to get the win and Shawn Lanners had three hits, including a home run, as the Buckman Billygoats moved a step closer to clinching the Victory League East regular-season title with a 14-1 win over the Royalton Riverdogs Wednesday night.
Corey Egan also had three hits with a pair of doubles as the Billygoats banged out 20 hits.
Ben Boser, Jeremy Payne, Noah Boser and Nick Lochner also had multi-hit games for Buckman.
Buckman can win the East championship with a win Saturday afternoon over the Pierz Bulldogs. A loss to Pierz means that Lastrup will win the East.
