ACME: Wapak rallies to edge New Bremen

June 29, 2011

If Tuesday night was any indication, Wapakoneta’s ACME tournament opener on Friday should be a good one.
Wapak rallied from a three-run deficit to post a 7-5 win over New Bremen at Wapakoneta High School. The two teams are set to face each other when tournament play begins Friday night at 6 at Hanover Street Park in Minster.
Trailing 5-2 after 4 1/2 innings, Wapak scored twice in the bottom of the fifth and three times in the sixth for the come-from-behind win.

ACME: Wapak shuts out St. Marys

June 28, 2011

Dylan Knoch didn’t take over as Wapakoneta’s lead-off hitter until midseason.
Monday night he looked more like a cleanup hitter.
Knoch hit a lead-off home run in the first inning that proved to be the only offense Wapak would need in a 3-0 win over rival St. Marys in an ACME baseball game at Wapakoneta High School.
“It was a curve ball that came down-in and I hit it before it broke over the plate,” Knoch said. “I thought I leaned into it good enough and I just pulled it. It felt real good off the bat.”

ACME: Wapak sweeps three-way doubleheader

June 27, 2011

LEWISTOWN — Wapakoneta improved its record to 12-2 with a pair of wins in a three-way ACME baseball doubleheader Saturday at Indian Lake High School.
Wapak blanked Indian Lake 6-0 in the opener before holding off Troy 6-3 in the second game.
Solid pitching and defense, and timely hitting were the key.
Brandon Miller threw an ultra-efficient 57 pitches in seven innings of work for the win against Indian Lake. Marshall Gerlach was able to work out of several jams for the win over Troy.

Lee's homer in 12th sinks Reds

June 24, 2011

BALTIMORE (AP) — Derrek Lee led off the bottom of the 12th inning with a home run to give the Baltimore Orioles a 5-4 victory over the Cincinnati Reds on Friday night.
Lee sent a 1-2 pitch from Jose Arredondo (0-3) into the seats in left field to end the marathon. It was Lee’s fifth home run, the first since May 8.
Cincinnati missed a chance to take the lead in the top of the 12th when Joey Votto was thrown out at the plate trying to score from first on a two-out double by Jay Bruce.

ACME: Wapak 'walks' past Van Wert

June 24, 2011

It was a wild night Thursday at Wapakoneta High School.
Well, at least for the Van Wert pitching staff.
Wapakoneta took advantage of 10 walks, four wild pitches and three hit batsmen to cruise to a 15-5 five-inning run rule win in an ACME baseball game.
The win snapped a two-game losing streak for Wapak, which is now 10-2.
“After last night (a 7-2 loss to Celina) I wondered if we’d forgot how to play,” Wapak coach Willie Sammetinger said.
Wapak scored its 15 runs on just eight hits and even left eight men on base for the game.

Ohio State drops review of car purchases

June 22, 2011

COLUMBUS (AP) — Ohio State University on Tuesday dropped its review of car purchases by football players and family members after two separate investigations found dealerships made money on almost all of the sales.
The university made its decision in light of a report by the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles and a separate review by the Ohio Independent Automobile Dealers Association.
"We have seen no evidence that would lead us to believe that Ohio State student athletes violated any policies when purchasing used cars," said university spokesman Jim Lynch.
