OAKLAND, Calif. — With All-Star Bartolo Colon gone to New York and projected opening day starter Jarrod Parker out for the season with an elbow injury, the Oakland Athletics are relying heavily on newcomer Scott Kazmir to help anchor the rotation.

Kazmir sure made a favorable first impression.

Kazmir shut out his former team into the eighth inning in his Oakland debut and the Athletics beat the Cleveland Indians 6-1 in the first game of a day-night doubleheader on Wednesday.

VAN WERT — Without a heavy west wind Tuesday night at Jubilee Park, the Jefferson at Van Wert fast-pitch softball opener would have likely been a pleasant contest to watch.

Still, despite that wind, both teams played a solid opener as the Lady Cougars grabbed a 5-3 non-league victory.

The host Cougars — the game was moved from Jefferson’s park to Van Wert due to wet grounds — used two hurlers: Brooke Bowen (3 innings pitched, 1 hit, 2 unearned runs, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts) and freshman Kateri Steinecker (1-0; 4 IPs, 2 hits, 1 ER, 4 BBs, 4 Ks).

KALIDA — A more veteran Jefferson baseball squad ruined the head coaching debut of Kalida’s Joe Recker with a solid overall performance in an 8-0 opening-game shutout on a gorgeous spring afternoon and early evening Monday at Holy Name Ballpark in Kalida.

Jefferson senior right-hander Ross Thompson (1-0; 5 innings pitched, 1 hit, 1 walk, 3 strikeouts) and fellow senior Jordan Herron (2 IPs, 1 hit, 4 BBs, 2 Ks) combined on the 98-pitch 2-hitter (56 strikes).

The only hits came from Kalida freshman Noah Lambert — one a double — while junior Brent Hovest had a pair of walks.

Jefferson worked its way for eight hits and eight walks against a trio of Kalida hurlers — sophomore southpaw starter Austin Swift (3 IPs, 1 hit, 2 earned runs, 5 BBs, 1 K, 1 wild pitch), sophomore Trent Gerding (1 IP, 5 hits, 5 ERs, 1 BB, 1 WP, 1 hit batter) and senior Randy Zeller (3 IPs, 2 hits, 1 ER, 2 BBs, 2 Ks, 1 HBP).
