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.
In the fifth, Miller ripped a two-run single up the middle to drive in two runs and make it a 4-3 game.
He followed that up with another line-drive single to center in the sixth, driving in the go-ahead run. Moments later, Kaeck smashed a bases-loaded double off the wall in right field to make it an 8-4 Wapak lead.
Back-to-back doubles from Max Huber and Jay Eilerman drove in three runs in the second inning.
Devon Poeppelman reached on an error and later scored on an error in the third inning to give Minster the 4-1 lead.
Wapak is now 4-0 on the season and will host St. Marys on Thursday.
