LORAIN, Ohio - Madison's Ryan Thurston finished on the wrong end of a 6-2 decision in his latest start with the Champion City Kings of the Prospect League on Saturday at Lorain County.
Thurston, a 2013 graduate of Madison who will be a sophomore at Western Kentucky University in the fall, lasted just 3.2 innings in a game played at the Pipe Yard in Lorain, giving up all six runs to the Ironmen on nine hits, a walk and two hit batters while striking out five.
The Ironmen struck for two runs in the second inning on back-to-back singles and a two-out, two-run single and Lorain added a run in the third by sandwiching a pair of singles around a hit batter.
The Ironmen finally chased Thurston in the fourth inning by stringing together a one out hit batter, a double and a three-run home run by second baseman Nate Langhals, a senior at the University of Toledo.
Champion City bounced back in the nightcap to win 2-0 behind Wright State junior Luke Mamer's complete game four-hitter. The Kings are now16-22 and fourth in the East Divison, 10 1/2 games back of Chillicothe, Ohio.
Thurston is now 1-3 in seven starts with a 4.40 ERA. He has pitched 32.2 innings, giving up 18 runs on 37 hits while walking 17 and striking out 31.
The Prospect League is a wooden bat league made up of college players on 11 teams from a region that includes Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Pennsylvania and West Virginia.
