DELPHOS — Both St. John’s and Kalida graduated a ton of seniors from last spring’s baseball teams, meaning both were beginning 2013 with a lack of experienced players.

Both needed simply to get at-bats and innings in the field and on the mound but last week’s rainy weather interrupted their progress.

On a pleasant Monday night at Stadium Park, the Wildcats went up 5-0 in the first 1 1/2 and pounded put 15 hits to grab their first win of the season, 9-6, in a non-league clash.

The Wildcats (1-3) were led at the plate by junior cleanup man Kyle Kehres (4-for-4, 3 runs batted in), freshman second batter Austin Swift (3-for-3, 3 runs scored) and sophomore leadoff man Brent Hovest (3-for-4, 3 runs, 2 RBIs). Senior number 9 hitter Adam Knueve scored twice.

The right-handed Kehres (1-1) went the first 5-plus frames on the mound, ceding six hits, five earned runs, hitting three, walking two, two wild pitches and fanning two. Senior Kyle Landin came on in relief and threw two frames, giving up two hits, an earned tally, two wild pitches, one hit batter and one strikeout.

The Blue Jays (2-5) amassed eight hits, with senior cleanup man Ryan Buescher going 4-for-4 and senior leadoff man Curtis Geise 2-for-4 (2 runs, 2 RBIs). Senior seventh man Craig Klausing scored twice.

Senior Troy Warnecke (0-2) went 4 2/3 innings (13 hits, 9 runs, 5 earned, 1 BB, 1 K) and junior T.J. Hoersten mopped up (2 hits, 2 Ks).

Both teams return to action 5 p.m. tonight: St. John’s at Minster in Midwest Athletic Conference action and Kalida at Arlington in non-league play.

Score by Innings:

Kalida 2 3 0 1 3 0 0 - 9 15 1

St. John’s 0 0 2 0 1 3 0 - 6 8 3

WP: Kyle Kehres (1-1); LP: Troy Warnecke (0-2). 2B: Kyle Kehres (K), Curtis Geise (S). 3B: Curtis Geise (S).

MIDDLE POINT - Lincolnview took advantage of 10 Jefferson errors to score 11 unearned runs in a 13-1 5-inning rout of the Lady Wildcats Monday afternoon at Lincolnview High School.

It was the Northwest Conference opener for both teams, leaving the Lancers at 4-0 overall and 1-0 in the conference. Jefferson is 0-6 and 0-1.

Lauren Calvert led Lincolnview hitters, going 1-for-2 with one run and three RBIs. Bailey Neate was 1-for-3 (double, two runs and an RBI). Autumn Procter, Kaitlyn Brant and Julia Thatcher had the other Lancer hits.

Lancer hurler Ashley McClure cruised through the first four innings, no-hitting the visitors, while striking out five and walking one. Reliever Courtney Gorman came on to pitch the fifth.

The Wildcats’ Taylor Branham took the loss, although she deserved a much better fate. Branham yielded 13 runs, only two earned, and was touched for only five hits, striking out six and walking four.

Kayla Kill had the visitors’ only hit.
