Chillicothe OH - - YOUR Chillicothe 757 Colts continued some sloppy play in the second game of the season falling behind 8-2 after the first five innings of play. Fortunately, the Colts were able to string together multiple hits in the bottom of the 6th inning to make it a tie game heading into the 7th inning.  The big 2-run blast off by Emmitt Cunningham’s bat on the 0-2 count scoring both Daniel Haller and Cunningham to give the Colts a 10-8 victory over a very good Dayton Classics club.

The Colts tied up the game at 8 in the bottom of the 6th inning with Kyle Wingo's double to score 2 runs.
