Unable to get the bats going, No. 3 seed Barker dropped a 5-2 decision to No. 4 Frewsburg in the Section VI Class C championship game this afternoon at Diethrick Stadium in Jamestown.

Frewsburg pitcher Matt Hair hurled a 2 hitter with 1 walk.

Barker pitcher Eddie Wasnock likewise had a sharp day on the mound allowing only 3 hits.

Frewsburg grabbed a quick lead by scoring twice in the first inning on errors.

Barker answered back with a run in the second on an error and a fielders choice play off the bat of Jacob Hurtgam to make it 2-1 but the Raiders would get no closer.

The Bears upped the lead to 4-1 by scoring twice in the fourth on an error and a fielders choice play.

The Frewsburg defense then turned key double plays in both the fourth and fifth innings to keep the Raiders off the scoreboard.

Barker’s other run came in the sixth as Mike Snell singled for the Raiders first hit and came home on a single by Kyle MacDonald
