Indians beat Flyers, beat by Coldwater

FR ACME baseball will face Marion Local in semifinal


ST. HENRY and FORT RECOVERY — The Indians got off to a strong start in the playoffs.

The semifinal round proved to cause some trouble, but the Indians still have a chance.

The third-seeded Fort Recovery ACME baseball team took down the No. 2 seed Marion Local Flyers 9-3 on Friday at St. Henry High School before getting picked off by top-seeded Coldwater 6-4 on Sunday at home.

With the loss in the first semifinal game to Coldwater, Fort Recovery needed to face off with Marion Local a second time in another semifinal on Monday at 5 p.m. for the chance to rematch Coldwater in the championship to follow.

The Indians (7-5) scored three runs in the first and fourthing innings against Marion Local, two in the second and one in the sixth. Alex Gaerke raked in five RBIs on four hits, including a double. Caden Grisez supported with three hits, three runs and two RBIs.

Gaerke also earned the win after throwing 4 ⅔ innings and only allowing two runs.

The Indians scored three runs in the first and another in the sixth against Coldwater. Jacob Foote led the offense with two RBIs.

Grisez suffered the loss, giving up five runs – only one was earned – in four innings pitched. Foote finished the game, giving up one run on two hits and two walks.


Rockets split

MISHAWAKA — The Portland Rockets split a pair of games against the South Bend Royals at Bethel University on Sunday.

Portland got walked off by the Royals in the first game 4-3.

Jared Holly drove in the first run for the Rockets (9-12) in the sixth inning and Garrison Brege smacked a two-RBI double to take a two-run lead.

Andrew Onuegbu gave up one run in the sixth inning before the game slipped away from Nick Bailey in the seventh.

Bailey gave up a walk, a double and intentionally walked another batter to load the bases. With two outs, Bailey nearly escaped, but gave up a two-out double to center field that plated a pair of runs.

Portland came back for a 7-4 win against South Bend in the second game. Brege and Joel Kennedy both led the way for the Rockets’ offense with two RBIs and two hits. Brege hit two solo home runs, while Kennedy had a pair of singles.
