DELPHOS — In an ACME summer baseball game Monday afternoon at Stadium Park, Jefferson crushed St. John’s 17-3 in a contest postponed from Friday.
In the regularly-scheduled matchup, Lincolnview bested the Blue Jays 13-6 in six innings (stopped with two down in the top of the seventh due to darkness with the Lancers scoring seven runs, thus ending the game with the last completed inning).
In the opener, the Wildcats amassed 11 hits and took advantage of five walks issued by starter T.J. Hoersten (6 innings, 8 hits, 12 runs, 5 earned, 4 strikeouts) and 11 errors.
Ross Thompson got the complete-game victory, ceding five hits and three runs (1 earned), walking one and fanning 10 in his 91-pitch effort (62 strikes).
He also led the offense with a 3-for-5 performance at the plate (2 runs scored, 2 stolen bases), while Ryan Bullinger was 2-for-3 (4 SBs, 2 runs batted in, 2 walks). Also contributing were Jace Stockwell (4 SBs, 3 runs), Tyler Talboom (3 runs, 2 RBIs), Jordan Herron (2 runs, 3 RBIs) and Hunter Binkley (2 runs).
Ben Wrasman had three of the five Blue Jays hits.
In the nightcap, the Lancers took advantage of nine free passes and four hit batters, as well as nine hits, to get their 7-run triumph.
Troy Patterson was the lone multi-hit player for the victors (3-for-4). Jalen Roberts was 1-for-1 with two walks (2 runs). Also scoring two runs were Eli Farmer, Derek Friesner and Derek Youtsey.
Southpaw Dalton Hines got the pitching win with three frames of relief (4 hits, 2 earned runs, 2 walks, 2 Ks).
Wrasman took the loss for the Jays, who actually out-hit the Lancers 11-9 and garnered five bases-on-balls. Hoersten went 3-for-4 (2 RBIs), while Gage Seffernick was 2-for-3 and Andy May (2 runs) and Wrasman (2 RBIs) went 2-for-4.
