Jake Mancini comes home with Circleville’s fourth run in the sixth inning in the Tigers’ 4-0 win over Unioto in the regional semifinal.

The Tigers (18-10) loaded the bases with no outs in the sixth when Mancini drove the ball down the left field line bringing in two runs. Ethan Wolfe came through a few moments later with a single to drive in two more CHS runners – including Mancini.

Mancini yielded only four hits, struck out five and didn’t give up a walk during his time on the mound.

The win puts Circleville in the regional championship game for the first time since 1998. They will take on Steubenville for a shot at the final four.

Brad Henry’s attempt at getting a bunt down goes awry as he takes the pitch off the helmet instead. Henry later came around to score Circleville’s second run of the game.
