The lone Braves’ run was unearned.
Bellefontaine scored a run in the second inning and another run in the third frame for a 2-0 lead.
The Chiefs increased their lead to 3-0 in the fifth inning. Shawnee rounded out the scoring with its run in the sixth inning.
Bellefontaine collected five hits at the plate. Josh Clifton led the way with a double and an RBI. Brandon Wilson and Jarrod Houchin also added an RBI.
The Chiefs return to action Thursday at home against Urbana.
