The term “hard-luck loss” certainly applied to Rome High pitcher Zach Russo-Alesi on Friday afternoon.
Although Russo-Alesi produced a strong outing, his counterpart — South Paulding’s Michael Green — kept the Rome hitters in check during South Paulding’s 3-1 win over the Wolves at Legion Field.
Green did not yield an earned run in the 5-AAAAA contest, and his offense supplied him with just enough support to help him earn the win over the Wolves.
“I thought defensively we did well and we had a great pitching effort by Zach,” said Rome coach   Michael Dougherty, “but we just couldn’t put the bat on the ball.”
With Russo-Alesi and Green locked in a pitcher’s duel, the teams played to a scoreless tie through the first four innings.
But South Paulding broke through in the fifth, when a bunt, an error and steal helped fuel a three-run rally.
From there, Green protected the lead.
“You can have great pitching, but when you’re not hitting the ball it makes it extremely tough to win ball games,” said Dougherty.
Rome hosts New Manchester on Monday.
