MINSTER â€” Two errors is human.
Nine is just ridiculous.
Even when you win.
Wapakoneta almost ruined Brandon Millerâ€™s nearly pristine pitching performance with nine errors but pulled out a 7-6 win over New Bremen in the opening round of the ACME baseball sectional tournament Friday at Hanover Park in Minster.
Miller drove in Josh Apple with a walk-off single in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Wapak the win.
Despite four innings of no-hit baseball, Miller and Wapakoneta trailed 5-4 after four innings.
MINSTER â€” The Minster ACME baseball team continued its winning ways Friday night as it defeated New Knoxville 23-0 in five innings in the second game of the sectional ACME Tournament held at Minster.
Minster began the game with four runs in the first inning including a two-run home run to left field by Rob Wente. It scored four runs on four hits. Devon Poeppelman and Ryan Hoying also had doubles in the inning.
In the second inning, Minster scored two runs on a wild pitch and a bases-loaded walk to Doug Huber.
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.
