ACME Baseball: Wapak rallies past Minster

June 13, 2012

WAPAKONETA — For four innings, Wapakoneta’s bats were quiet.

In the fifth and sixth innings, they started to make some noise.

A lot of noise.

Brandon Miller and Chandler Kaeck combined to drive in six runs in two innings as Wapak rallied from behind for an 8-4 win over Minster in a ACME baseball game Tuesday at Wapakoneta High School between schools that both played in state title games two weeks ago.

Miller and Kaeck were a combined 0-for-4 through four innings as Minster jumped out to a 4-1 lead.

ACME Baseball: Wapak downs St. Marys

June 8, 2012

ST. MARYS — Aside from a failed early wooden bat experiment, Wapakoneta has continued its success into the summer.

“They tried them in batting practice in the spring and they thought they might want to try them in the game,” Wapakoneta ACME coach Willie Sammetinger said, with a chuckle. “Well, they broke $200 worth of bats last night in Elida. They just fractured them. So we’re slowly but surely starting to go back to metal.”

Whatever the material, Wapak’s baseball team can swing those bats.
