ST. MARYS — St. Marys Memorial needed to score an unearned run in the bottom of the eighth inning to dispatch Jefferson 11-10 in a wild opening game of a Tuesday night twin-bill at Diamond 7 at the K.C. Geiger Park in St. Marys.
In the nightcap (5 innings), Mason Gross threw a 5-inning no-hitter to shutout the Wildcats 4-0.
The Roughriders got a leadoff triple by Marshall Leininger to start the home eighth against reliever Jordan Herron and two outs later, he scored on an error on a grounder hit by Dirk Fenwick.
Jefferson drew first blood in the top of the first against Roughrider starter Josh Young on a leadoff walk to Josh Teman (3 walks, 3 runs), a walk (Tyler Rice) an error and a sacrifice fly by Tyler Talboom.
The Roughriders scored four times in the home half on two hits — with a run-producing double by Isaac Fitzgerald (4-for-4, 4 runs batted in, 2 runs) — an RBI groundout by Mason Gross and two earlier errors.
Jefferson got within 4-3 in the second on a hit by Damien Dudgeon (4-for-5, 2 runs batted in), a sacrifice by Adam Rode (2-for-4), a fielder’s choice by Ryan Goergens (2 runs), a single by Teman and back-to-back errors.
The Wildcats tied it at 4-4 in the third. Jordan Herron (2-for-4, 2 runs) singled, was sacrificed to second by Kurt Wollenhaupt and scored on a single by Dudgeon.
The hosts went up 5-4 in the third on a leadoff 3-bagger by Tristan Becker (3-for-4, 4 runs) and an infield hit by Fitzgerald.
Memorial made it 6-4 in the fourth on a 1-out hit (Young), a groundout and an RBI hit by Nate Vogel.
St. Marys made it 9-4 in the fifth on three errors and three safeties, including an RBI double by Fitzgerald and a run-producing knock by Austin Quellhorst.
In the Jefferson sixth against reliever Joe Phenning and third pitcher — and winner — Zach Wilker, the Red and White plated six runs on seven walks and two hits. Four runs came home on bases-loaded free passes to Gage Mercer, Talboom, Wollenhaupt and Teman and the other two on hits by Herron and Dudgeon to go up 10-9. They also left the bases loaded.
St. Marys retied it in the home half on a walk (Becker), a steal and throwing errors on the play.
Rode singled with two down in the eighth but was left there.
In the nightcap, Rice walked with one down in the top of the first, took second on a pickoff error but was caught too far off second on Mercer’s grounder.
Vogel walked against starter Teman to open the home half, stole second, took third on a groundout by Michael Harbaum and scored on a triple by Becker.
Ryan Goergens walked with one down in the third but a 6-4-3 double play ended that threat.
Jefferson left runners on third and first on in the fourth via walks to Rice (leadoff) and a fielder’s choice (Herron).
Memorial scored two runs in the third on a 2-out error and two singles by Fitzgerald (Harbaum) and Wilker (Becker).
St. Marys tacked on its final tally in the fourth on a 2-out free pass and a triple by Vogel.
Goergens walked with two down in the fifth but was eliminated at second on a grounder.
