On Thursday the Continental High baseball team traveled to Ottoville for Putnam County League action. A well played game by the Pirates did not end with a positive result as the Big Green took the victory 2-1.

The two combined to strike out 13 Big Green batters in 5 innings. Coleman led the Pirates hitting attack with a pair of hits.
