OTTOVILLE — St. John’s scored all four of its runs in the first two innings and held off a late Ottoville charge, grabbing a 4-2 non-conference baseball triumph on a brilliant but chilly Monday at Ottoville High School.

The Blue Jays (8-13) rode the complete game of senior right-hander Andrew Metzger (2-1; 3 hits, 2 earned runs, 5 bases-on-balls, 3 strikeouts; 94 pitches).

The visitors compiled 10 hits against sophomore right-hander Joel Beining (2-2; 4 2/3 IPs, 4 earned runs, 4 BBs, 1 K). Junior Alex Horstman came on in relief in the top of the fifth and retired all seven batters he faced.

Senior Ryan Buescher (1 run, 1 run batted in) and senior Troy Warnecke both went 2-for-3 for the Jays, while senior Clay Courtney went 2-for-4. Metzger helped himself with two RBIs, including a run-scoring double in the first.

Senior Bryan Hohlbein was the big bat in the Big Green (8-9) lineup with a 2-for-3 day and classmate Craig Odenweller knocked in both runs with a double in the bottom of the seventh.

The Jays return to the diamond tonight at home versus Coldwater and open tourney play Thursday versus Waynesfield-Goshen at Perry.

The Big Green begins its tourney trail 5 p.m. Wednesday at Crestview, facing Lincolnview.

KALIDA — The baseball and softball tournaments are already underway but the Kalida Wildcats and Continental Pirates still had some unfinished Putnam County League business on the softball diamond in a make-up of a game previously rained out.

The Pirates jumped on Kalida pitcher Emily Schnipke for four runs in the first inning and paced their way to a 8-3 victory.

Leva Weller pitched a complete game for Continental to get the win, while helping her cause at the plate in going 2-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in on a 2-run double in the first.

Nicole Recker was 2-for-4 for the home team, scoring a run. Summer Holtkamp tripled and was 1-for-4.

Kalida continues in the tournament today when they play Patrick Henry in the sectional finals. Continental heads back to the diamond on Wednesday to face Columbus Grove.

Score by Innings:

Contin. 402 020 0 - 8

Kalida 001 002 0 - 3
