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.

ACME: St. Marys whips Wapak

June 18, 2011

ST. MARYS — 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 Wapak’s formerly perfect 9-0 record with a dominating performance, pounding out 10 hits and taking advantage of every Wapak miscue for the win.

ACME: Miller enters record books in Wapak win

June 17, 2011

NEW KNOXVILLE — Wapakoneta ACME coach Willie Sammetinger shook his head and smiled.
“I’ve never seen anybody have three,” he said.
“That” 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.
