DELPHOS — New Knoxville got a 3-run home run by Meyer in the top of the fifth inning to grab a 6-3 lead and held on for a 6-5 Midwest Athletic Conference triumph over host St. John’s Thursday at Stadium Park.

The Blue Jays (4-11, 1-4 MAC) out-hit the Rangers 11-10 but left 13 runners on base.

“We hit the ball well; we’ve been coming around there. We’re putting ourselves in position to score,” Jays coach Ryan Warnecke said. “However, we didn’t come up with the clutch hit in the big situations. That is something we have to get better at doing.”

However, five errors on the defensive side made things tough for starter Troy Warnecke and reliever Drew Wagner.

“It’s starting to become an issue. We made one step forward and go back two more,” the coach added. “It’s hard to get out there on the mound when you’re unsure of those behind you making plays. It’s not that we’re not fielding the ball — we are; we’re just throwing the ball all over the field. It’s a lack of concentration; it’s more mental now.”

St. John’s hits the road to New Bremen 5 p.m. today for another MAC encounter.
