Wednesday’s preps: Osborn reaches PSL baseball final

Detroit Osborn defeated Detroit Central, 10-0, in a Detroit Public School League Division II baseball semifinal at The Corner Ballpark on Wednesday.

Osborn advanced for the second straight season to the championship game, which will be played at 2 p.m. Monday at Comerica Park.

Last year Osborn lost to Detroit Edison 8-4 in a hard-fought championship game. This year, Osborn has a shot at redemption.

Osborn wasted no time jumping to an early lead, and Isaiah Watts made it stand up.

Watts pitched a complete game, giving up three hits and striking out five. Central could not find a way to get Watts out of his groove.

Teionta Waters led Osborn’s offense, going 1-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs. He’ll be looking to repeat his strong performance in last season’s championship game, in which he went 2-for-3 with two RBIs.

The PSL Division I championship game will follow the Osborn/Mumford game on Monday.
