Jefferson grabs NWC
baseball triumph
SPENCERVILLE — Jefferson rallied from a 1-run deficit in the fourth inning and shut out Spencerville over the final three frames to knock off Spencerville 10-7 in a Northwest Conference baseball game on a sunny and pleasant Monday afternoon/evening at Spencerville.

The Bearcats (1-6, 0-1 NWC) had rallied from a 6-2 deficit after 2 1/2 innings to take a 7-6 edge before the visiting Wildcats (12-4, 2-1 NWC) came back.
Drew Kortokrax led the visitors with a 3-for-4 day at the plate (2 runs), while Zach Ricker and Seth Wollenhaupt (RBI) were both 2-for-3 and Jordan Herron got on via three free passes.

Zach Ricker (3-1) was the winner with 3 2/3 innings of relief of Herron (2 1/3 IPs). Ross Thompson got his second save with an inning.
Jon Shimp went 2-for-3 (2 runs) for the hosts.

Joey Shimp took the loss with 4 2/3 innings in relief of starter Aaron Crider (1 1/3 IP). Jefferson scored three times in the top of the second without benefit of a hit: four walks — two of them bases loaded to Tyler Wrasman and Zach Ricker — a hit batter and an error, to go up 3-0.

Spencerville got two back in the home half on two free passes and a pair of hits, including a 2-run single by Sean Monfort.

The Wildcats tacked on three more in the third via two walks and three hits, including a 2-run double by Ross Thompson and a run-scoring 2-bagger by Seth Wollenhaupt, for a 6-2 edge.

The Bearcats tied it up with a 4 spot in the home half, combining two walks and two hits, including a 2-run double by Wyatt Krouskop, plus a key miscue that allowed two more runs in.

The Bearcats took a 7-6 edge in the fourth courtesy of a walk, a hit and a wild pitch that plated Joey Shimp.
The visitors made it 8-7 in the fifth, adding two more hits and a big error that scored Thompson and Ricker.

The guests put up a solo tally in the sixth on a sacrifice fly to center by Thompson (plating Wollenhaupt).
Jefferson accounted for the final scoreboard in the seventh on a double by Drew Kortokrax, a wild pitch and a balk.
Jefferson visits Elida 5 p.m. today, while Spencerville visits LCC Thursday.

Shumate (2-3) walked six and fanned eight in giving up an unearned tally. Alyssa Mulholland led the attack with a 4-for-4 contest (3 runs, 2 runs batted in), with Tori Johnston 2-for-2 (2 runs, 3 RBIs).
Taylor Branham (0-6) took the loss for the Wildcats (0-6, 0-2 NWC), ceding all 11 hits and all 12 runs (10 earned). She walked five and struck out six.
Branham and Kamie Pulford got the visitors’ only hits.
The Wildcats got Branham on base in the top of the first (2-out walk) but was stranded.
The Bearcats scored three times in the home half on three walks, three wild pitches and a pair of hits, including a 2-run double to left by Johnston, to make it 3-0.
Jefferson got its only run in the second as they loaded the bases on two walks and an error, allowing Samantha Branham (walk) to score and make it 3-1, Bearcats.
The hosts made it 6-1 in the bottom half, getting a pair of errors and three hits, including an RBI hit by Johnston.
Spencerville extended the lead to 10-1 in the third, getting a walk, a hit batter and two hits, including a 2-run shot up the gut by Mulholland.

Spencerville tacked on their final two tallies in the fourth on a walk and three hits, with a 2-run single by Haley Calvelage, to account for the final score.
The visitors got a pair of runners: Alexis Cook and T. Branham; on in the fifth but they were left there, ending the game.
