HAVILAND – The season opening pitch from Ottoville’s Courtney Von Sossan was met by Wayne Trace junior Addison Baumle and sent over the left-center field fence at the home of the Raiders.

From there, the rest of the afternoon belonged to the Lady Raiders as Wayne Trace rolled to a 13-0 victory over the Big Green in the softball season opener for both schools.

Baumle, a junior pitcher/infielder for Wayne Trace, finished the night with three singles and a home run while driving in three runs to lead the red, white and blue to the season-opening win.

The Raiders’ Molly Crosby kept Ottoville off balance all night long, allowing only three hits and two walks while striking out ten.

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).

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).

CINCINNATI — The Reds were unable to score after they put a runner on third with no outs. And for the first time in 61 years, they ended up getting blanked on opening day.

Yadier Molina broke a seventh-inning tie with a home run and made a pair of slick defensive plays on Monday, leading the defending National League champion St. Louis Cardinals to a 1-0 victory.

The Reds were shut out in their season opener for the first time since 1953, ending the second-longest streak in major-league history. The Phillies went 62 years without being blanked in an opener from 1911-72.

“I ran a lot of my early part of my career as an individual and I didn’t respect my team, my team owners,” Busch continued, adding that working with co-owner Tony Stewart is helping him learn a better way.
