ST. MARYS â€” It was a painful night Friday for the Wapakoneta ACME baseball team.
The insult? A 10-0 five-inning run rule loss to rival St. Marys at K.C. Geiger Park in St. Marys.
The injuries? Those belong to second baseman Alex Koch and shortstop Josh Apple.
A fired-up St. Marys squad placed the first blemish on Wapakâ€™s formerly perfect 9-0 record with a dominating performance, pounding out 10 hits and taking advantage of every Wapak miscue for the win.
NEW KNOXVILLE â€” Wapakoneta ACME coach Willie Sammetinger shook his head and smiled.
â€śIâ€™ve never seen anybody have three,â€ť he said.
â€śThatâ€ť would be three triples in a game.
Wapak first baseman Brandon Miller did just that in a 14-6 win Thursday at New Knoxville, setting a new Wapak ACME record.
Wapak remained perfect on the season at 9-0.
How rare is three triples in a game? Consider this: in Major League history it has only happened 48 times. Compare that to hitting for the cycle, which has happened 291 times.
After two months of rainy and cold weather, the Wapakoneta Country Club is now going strong.
Carol Jackson had her first hole-in-one on No. 5 using an 8-iron.
Eagles carded included Scott Nawman on No. 7, Cory Market on No. 9 and Denny Tenwalde on No. 12.
Twenty-two golfers in two brackets competed in a two-man shamble.
The ladiesâ€™ Monday evening, senior menâ€™s Tuesday morning and menâ€™s Tuesday evening leagues are all underway.
Coming events are the Two-Man Patsome tourney on June 26 and the Chamber of Commerce outing on June 30.
