Authors:CANTON, Ohio – The expression that baseball is a game of inches is a cliché that’s as old as America’s favorite pastime itself, but a phrase doesn’t last that long without some truth behind it. The Hudson Explorers found that out the hard way in a 2-1 regional semifinal loss to the Massillon Perry Panthers in the Canton Division I Regional at Thurman Munson Stadium on Thursday. “When you get this far, we’re one game away from going to Columbus. We’re disappointed,” Explorers coach Chuck Schilling said following the loss. Copyright 2012 SportsInk. All rights reserved.
