“That’s a little bit unusual,” Bliss said. “We haven’t been making those kinds of mistakes. After that one little blip there, we had to survive.”
Cring struck out 10 in a two-hitter to improve to 18-0 this season for Cooperstown.
Bliss said Thousand Islands finished its season at 8-9, and all nine of its losses came against state-ranked teams.
“They’re a very solid eight-seed,” he said. “A lot of their losses were close. Four of them were one-run games, including today. We were fortunate we got through that.”
