From staff reports
Brian Garman saw his time on the mound halted until next month, as the Wapakoneta native was placed on the 7-day disabled list Monday.
Garman is a pitcher for the Huntsville Stars, a Double-A minor league baseball team of the Southern League based in Huntsville, Ala.
Garmanâ€™s first win of the season came June 16 against the Chattanooga Lookouts in a 3-1 victory. He pitched one inning and did not allow a baserunner.
At the time he was placed on the DL, this season Garman had 1-0 record, a 4.25 ERA and 22 strikeouts.
Wapakoneta ACME overcame a brief 3-0 deficit by scoring seven straight runs in a 7-4 win over Minster ACME on Tuesday in baseball action at Wapakoneta High School.
The two teams are battling for the top seed in the sectional tournament which starts Sunday.
Tuesdayâ€™s win gave Wapak a 10-6 record, while the loss put Minster at 9-3-1. Wapakâ€™s first loss this summer came June 11 in a 5-2 defeat at Minster, so each team has a three-run victory over the other.
