COLDWATER — The St. Marys ACME baseball team got timely hits, as the Riders defeated the Coldwater Cavaliers 6-3 Friday evening at Veteran’s Field.
“This win was huge for the players tonight,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “One of the things I told the kids this is the level that we have to play at all the time. This is the level that we are capable of playing at. When we stay focused and we are doing the things that we need to do we can be at the level.”
MINSTER — Up and down the line-up, the Wapakoneta ACME baseball team had things clicking in the top of the third inning.
The Redskins built an early seven-run lead thanks to that big inning and went on to beat Minster 8-5 on Friday night at Hanover Street Park.
Wapak scored two runs in the first and then sent nine to the plate in a five-run bottom of the third inning to construct a 7-0 lead that was too much for Minster to overcome.

CELINA — Trevor Kill found a little psychological edge for his relief appearance on an otherwise sleepy night in Great Lakes Summer Collegiate League play.
Kill, a Southeast Missouri State pitcher and St. Marys Memorial grad, worked 1 and 1-3 innings of scoreless relief against a Lima Locos team that turned him away.
While he was in there to get some work in during a blowout, Kill could take pride in his effort on a night little else went right for Grand Lake in a 12-4 loss to the Locos.
OMAHA, Neb. (AP) — The joy Kent State players and coaches have derived from the program’s first College World Series appearance has been diminished since they arrived because of the unexpected death of backup catcher and former Grand Lake Mariner Jason Bagoly’s mother.
Cheryl McHenry died unexpectedly at age 50 last Thursday, the day after the Golden Flashes arrived in Omaha.
ST. MARYS — The hits were flying around the ball park Tuesday evening for the St. Marys ACME baseball team as it swept a doubleheader from Sidney 16-1 in five innings in the first game and 16-6 in six innings in the second game.
“I think we did pretty well offensively,” St. Marys head coach Alan Huber said. “The kids did well in situational hitting and we had good pitching. Brandon (Coffey) pitched well and Marcus Wagner had a good showing in the second game, but he got a little fatigued and Isaac Fitzgerald came on to finish the game.”
The St. Marys’ ACME baseball team’s patient approach paid dividends late in its 11-8 comeback win over Elida on Monday night at K.C. Geiger Park.
St. Marys (5-5) rallied back from a six-run deficit with a nine-run bottom of the sixth inning by getting into Elida’s bullpen.
St. Marys worked the count and got Elida’s effective starter out of the game after four-plus innings.
