The Cambrian Nissan Midget Black Sox fell in the championship game of the 18th annual Black Sox Invitational on Sunday afternoon.
The Black Sox dropped a 13-2 decision to Gladwin Post 171 in the title game after getting some help to get into the final.
Thanks to wins by Gladwin and the Sudbury Lakers earlier in the day, the Black Sox got into the final with a 2-2 record before dropping the championship to a Gladwin team that finished the weekend with a 5-0 record.
Glawdin pitcher Jonah Weisenberger pitched a complete-game four-hitter in the championship, striking out four and walking just one. Trey Anderson led the way for Gladwin with three hits and two runs scored. Anderson singled twice, doubled and walked in the game. Billy Bittner also reached base three times for Gladwin.
Jeb Pallott, Jordan Pine, Collin McAuley and Brock Berry had hits for the Black Sox in the loss.
The Black Sox opened up a 2-0 lead in the first inning before Gladwin scored eight runs in the bottom of the second and added on five more in the third to take the victory.
The tournament win marks the eighth time Gladwin has won the tournament and the 14th time they have made it to the championship game in the 18-year history of the tournament.
Next up for the Black Sox is a double header on Tuesday night against Alpena.
