The Indiansâ€™ performance against the Giants in San Francisco didnâ€™t raise the optimism level among Tribe fans. It probably didnâ€™t do much to encourage the guys who play, either.
After scoring four runs and being swept in the three-game series at AT&T Park, despite good pitching, it was important to demonstrate a pulse at Chase Field.
And the Indians came through, winning two out of three before heading for Cincinnati to play the last three of this yearâ€™s interleague games.
CONVOY â€” Wapakoneta is beginning to master the art of the sixth-inning rally.
And while that may not be good for coach Nick Sammetingerâ€™s blood pressure, itâ€™s good for the win column.
For the second night in a row, Wapak had to come from behind to win, scoring a pair of runs in the sixth inning on its way to a 6-3 win over Crestview in an ACME baseball game Wednesday in Convoy.
On Tuesday, Wapak scored three times in the sixth in a comeback win over New Bremen.

An outdoor pest, much like the emerald ash borer, that has been known to kill trees has reached Ohio in search of hardwood trees â€” and one local expert says it is only a matter of time before it is found in Auglaize County.
Asian long-horned beetles, which originated in Eastern China, have been identified in southern Ohio, in Clermont County east of Cincinnati. The insect feasts on hardwood trees which can potentially kill the tree.
The countyâ€™s driverâ€™s exam office isnâ€™t expected to move back to its location adjacent to the license bureau or title department on South Blackhoof Street any time soon.
The officeâ€™s lease, which expired Thursday, has not been renewed.
Lt. Goldie Jackson of the Ohio State Highway Patrol said no action has been taken because the state is conducting a comprehensive review of every driverâ€™s exam office in the state to determine what decisions make the most sense financially, as well as offer the most efficiency and best serve customers.
