KALIDA — The clock struck 8 on the St. Michael’s bell tower as Kalida’s Brady Laudick came to bat with two outs and the bases loaded in the last inning at the historic Holy Name Ball Park in Kalida.

The baseball game was played for over three hours in a light mist all evening as the temperature continued to fall under the lights Monday.

On the mound for St. John’s in this pressure situation was freshman relief pitcher Josh Warnecke throwing to classmate Buddy Jackson. With a 3-2 count and the runners in motion, Warnecke came through like a seasoned veteran with a huge strikeout to give the Blue Jays their first victory of the season, 10-8 over the Wildcats.

The game started quietly as Kalida’s starting pitcher Drew Hovest and T.J. Hoersten for St. John’s breezed through the first inning without giving up a run.

MILLER CITY — When you have two aces on the mound, taking advantage of opportunities is a must.

As Miller City and Fort Jennings squared off in a Putnam County League contest Monday afternoon, any runs scored would be crucial as the Wildcats’ Ross Lehman and Musketeers’ Ryan Rau stood on the mound. In the end it was the Wildcats that were able to take advantage of a couple scoring chances before breaking the game open in a 7-1 league win.

The win moved the Wildcats to 1-0 in the league and 4-2 overall, while the Musketeers dropped to 1-2 in the league and 2-7 overall.

Miller City scored single runs in the third and fourth innings and that was enough for Lehman who moved to 2-1 on the season. In each of his three starts this season, Lehman has allowed opposing teams just one run in each game. On a cool, overcast Monday afternoon, Lehman allowed one run on three hits with six strikeouts and two walks.

DELPHOS — Jefferson’s softball unit put together its best all-around effort in a long time as the Lady Wildcats entertained Northwest Conference foe Lincolnview on a damp spring Monday afternoon.

Unfortunately, they couldn’t quite finish the deal as the Lady Lancers rallied from a 4-2 deficit in the final three frames to escape with a 6-4 triumph.

Both pitchers went the distance.

Jefferson (0-8, 0-2 NWC) sophomore Claire Thompson (0-4) gave up seven hits and six runs (5 earned), walked two and fanned two in her 95-pitch (65 for strikes) outing.

Lincolnview (3-4, 1-1) senior Ashley McClure (3-4) had to work harder in her 161-pitch effort (93 for strikes): nine hits, four earned runs, five bases-on-balls, 10 strikeouts.

Number 8 hitter Sophia Wilson led the hosts with a 3-for-4 effort at the plate (1 run batted in), while second hitter Samantha Branham was 2-for-4 (RBI).

On behalf of the guests, Macey Ashbaugh (RBI, run) and Julia Thatcher (RBI, run) both went 2-for-4.

The Wildcats return to the diamond Wednesday at Perry, while Lincolnview hosts Lima Central Catholic Thursday.

Score by Innings:

Lincolnview 2 0 0 0 1 3 0 - 6 8 1

Jefferson 0 1 0 3 0 0 0 - 4 9 2

Ashley McClure and Julia Thatcher; Claire Thompson and Samantha Branham. WP: McClure (3-4); LP: Thompson (0-4).
