Jun. 10—TRAVERSE CITY — Wyatt Danilowicz threw a gem, but the Traverse City West Titans season ended Wednesday night in a 2-0 loss to Midland Dow in the regional semis.
Danilowicz struck out 17 with a second-inning hit. Neither of his two runs were earned after a ball that caught the lip of the infield led to a fielding error by the first baseman. The Chargers scored the first of two runs on a first-and-third play with one out and the Titans never rallied back.
West tallied three hits. They came from Aidan Dungan, Charlie Jeffery and Ian Robertson.
Traverse City West finishes its season 27-12.
