FLUSHING – The Carman- Ainsworth baseball team was knocked out of the postseason after falling to Swartz Creek 12-3 in the district semifinal at Flushing on Monday. The district was suspended Saturday after strong storms rolled across the state.

Harrison Hogan toed the rubber for four innings, striking out one while giving up seven hits five runs and two walks. Logan Brassaw pitched three innings of relief, retiring two while allowing six hits, seven runs and four walks.

Garrett Gleason had a hit and two RBI. Cameron Koegel and Hogan added a hit and a run each.

Flushing then beat Swartz Creek 9-0 to win the district. Flushing had defeated Saginaw Heritage 8-4 in the semifinal and took a win by forfeit over Saginaw Arthur Hill in the district opener.

Flushing hosted Midland Dow in the regional semifinal on Wednesday following press deadlines.
