Battistoni Diesel is off to the championship round of the NABF Regional Tournament, which is taking place in Frederick, Md.
The Buffalo amateur baseball squad lost to the West Virginia Pirates, 1-0, in the final game of pool play. Dave Brozyna was the hard-luck losing pitcher, giving up an unearned run. Diesel only had one hit in the game, with it coming from Joe Barbario. However, the WNY squad still had a 2-1 record to take Pool A.
The semifinals will be held today, with Kevin Hughes pitching for Battistoni Diesel against the Brunswick Orioles at 11 a.m.
