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 13-7 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.
The Wildcats scored five times in the top of the first, talking advantage of five miscues and two hits, both of them run-producing singles by Gage Mercer (2 runs, 2 RBIs) and Bullinger, to do so.
St. John’s got one back in the home half on a walk (Austin Heiing), a hit (Wrasman), a forceout (Hoersten) and an error.
Jefferson made it 6-1 in the second on a walk to Stockwell, two steals and a bounceout by Mercer.
Jefferson made it 8-1 in the third on an error, a walk and three hits, including a run-scoring 2-bagger by Jordan Herron.
The Jays made it 8-2 in the third on a 1-out hit batter (Heiing), a double (Wrasman) — with Heiing getting injured and leaving the game — and pinch-runner Jorden Boone scoring on a bouncer by Hoersten.
In the Wildcat fifth, they took a 9-2 edge on an error, four stolen bases and an RBI single by Stockwell, plating Tyler Rice (2 runs).
Jefferson went up 12-2 in the sixth on another miscue, a steal of home (Rice) and two hits.
The Blue and Gold plated their final run of the opener on two singles (Wrasman and Chad Etgen), a forceout and an error.
The Red and White finished off their scoring with five more in the seventh against Kyle Pohlman on two miscues, a hit batter and three knocks, including a 2-run triple by Herron and RBI hits by Thompson and Binkley.
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.
The Jays left the bases loaded in the home half of the first.
Lincolnview sent four home in the top of the second on two hits, one a run-producer by Tyler Richey; three walks, including a bases-loaded one to starter Nick Leeth; and two fielder’s-choice groundouts by Kyle Williams and Farmer.
St. John’s halved its deficit in the home half on a walk and three knocks, including RBI safeties by Wrasman (Boone) and Hoersten (May).
Two more Lancers touched the dish in the third via four hits, two of the infield hit variety (Patterson and Leeth) that brought in Roberts and Youtsey.
Lincolnview made it 7-2 in the fourth on a 1-out walk (Friesner), an error, a walk (Roberts) and a groundout by Youtsey.
The Blue Jays got within 7-6 in the fourth (chasing Leeth for Hines) on a hit batter, a walk and four hits, including a run-scoring double by Wrasman (Boone) and run-scoring single by Seffernick. A fielder’s-choice by Hoersten platted May and a wild pitch scored Wrasman.
The Lancers put three more runs on the board in the fifth — chasing Wrasman for Jess Ditto — on an error (scoring Hines), three hit batters, including a bases-loaded one by Trevor Neate that got Farmer in, and an RBI liner by Youtsey (Friesner).
Lincolnview made it 13-6 in the sixth on four walks and one hit, a bases-0clearing double by Wyatt Schmersal.
The hosts got a run in the home half on a double by Hoe3rsten, a wild pitch and a single by Seffernick.
St. John’s hosts Perry 6 p.m. Thursday.
The Van Wert County ACME tournament commences Monday.
