Ottawa remains perfect

SIDNEY, OH – In their last game before playing host to their own tournament this weekend the Ottawa Fighting 63rd found runs early, often and late in their 10-2 defeat of Sidney Post 217.

Miller City’s Corbin Niese had a big day at the plate for Ottawa as he slapped one of his five singles on the day to give his team their first baserunner of the game in the opening inning. Despite having the bases loaded in the opening frame, the 63rd were kept off the scoreboard by Sidney hurler Isaiah Beaver however.

Austin Klausing of Kalida started off the top of the second inning for the 63rd with a single to the left side of the infield just past Sidney’s short stop and then was moved into scoring position on a balk. Ada infielder Brayden Sautter reached was hit in the small of the back by a Beaver pitch and put runners on the corners. With two outs in the inning Ottawa reached the scoreboard when Niese singled in Klausing from third to give his team their first marker. Austin Swift kept his hot streak going as he drove in a run after Sautter scored on an error and the visitors found themselves on top 3-0 heading to their second defensive inning.

Ottawa starter Ryan Stoller (Van Wert) cruised through the first two innings where he gave up just a walk and a fielders choice to Sidney hitters, but found himself in trouble in the third as Post 217 was able to put a couple of runners on via a single and a walk. Stoller would exit after officially pitching 2.1 innings, and be replaced by Grant Fuerst (OG) who was able to keep the home nine off the scoreboard and preserve his teams lead.

Ottawa’s next run came in the fourth inning as Sautter would again score, this time knocked in by Swift to run the lead to 4-0 after 3.5 innings.

In the sixth the Fighting 63rd would find themselves in the midst of their biggest inning, an frame in which they would send 10 batters to the plate against Beaver and reliever Jake Peters. Sautter walked to open the inning, then proceeded to push himself across the diamond by stealing a pair of bases and eventually scoring. Corbin Niese, the Van Wert Cougar duo of Ryan McCracken and Ryan Stoller, and Logan Dukes (Miller City) all came around to score in the inning and helped the lead balloon to 9-0 when all was said and done.

Sidney’s first run of the contest came in the sixth inning as Kyle Subler (Versailles) who finished 3 for 5 on the day singled to begin the inning against Fuerst. Following a single and a fielders choice Subler was brought in to score on a Kyle Noble single to make the score of the game 9-1 in Ottawa’s favor.

Lima Senior’s Josiah Shoemaker took the mound for Ottawa in the 8th inning and struck out the first two hitters he faced in Bryant McCarty and Noble, but got into a bit of trouble as he plunked consecutive batters in Carter Mescher and Cheyne Tate with two outs. Sidney Catcher Zach White reached on a throwing error that brought Mescher in for the second run of the game for the home team before Shoemaker got a flyout to end his inning on the mound and keep the score 9-2 in his teams favor.

Division 4 1st team All-Ohio selection Jackson Lammers (Miller City) picked up his first baserunning opportunity of the ballgame in the top of the ninth as he was walked on four straight pitches. After Lammers was moved to second on a passed ball he was quickly driven in by Niese for the final run of the game to make it a 10-2 Ottawa victory and keep the Fighting 63rd undefeated on the young season at 5-0.

Sidney found themselves with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning, but reliever Noah Howell (Temple Christian) got a ground ball from Mescher and tossed it to first for the contests final out.

63rd rally to remain perfect

OTTAWA, OH – Austin Swift might have played his high school baseball eight miles away at Holy Name Ballpark for Kalida, but the two time Putnam County League Player of the Year has become quite comfortable providing late game heroics at Ottawa’s Memorial Park.

With his team trailing visiting Whitehouse 6-5 in the bottom of the ninth inning and with one out the future Indiana Wesleyan Wildcat slammed the first pitch offering from right handed Michael Conklin (Anthony Wayne) into the outfield and drove in both Brayden Sautter (Ada) and Corbin Niese (Miller City) to give his Ottawa Legion squad a 7-6 walkoff win. During the high school tournament Swift was responsible for striking out 18 Leipsic hitters in addition to driving in the winning run in a 3-2 victory at the same field that put his Kalida Wildcats into the Division 4 Regional Semifinals.

Whitehouse jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the second inning against Ottawa hurler Jordan Tovarnak (Shawnee) but were unable to connect on any more runs as catcher CJ Deacon (Anthony Wayne) flew out to centerfield to put a stop to their turn at bat.

Still trailing 2-0 when they came up in the bottom of the fifth inning the 63rd got took the lead before heading back out in the field as they pushed through four runs against Nathan Haugh (Anthony Wayne).

Brady Laudick (Kalida) began the Ottawa fifth by drawing a four pitch walk before being moved over on a Tovarnak single. Sautter was walked to load the bases and then Jackson Lammers (Miller City) was given an RBI as he walked with the bases still loaded for the first run of the game for the home team. Following a Niese strikeout for the second out of the inning, Austin Swift cleared the bases as he tripled in all three runners to give his team their first lead at 4-3 before Ryan McCracken grounded out to second to end the inning.

Three runs in the top of the sixth inning against Tovarnak and reliever Grant Fuerst (Ottawa Glandorf) gave Whitehouse a 6-4 lead as they accounted for three hits and three runs, including a sacrifice fly from Joe Everson (Liberty Center) to get the rally started.

Temple Christian’s Noah Howell pitched a perfect ninth inning and tossed just four pitches to get a lineout on a snag by Kalida’s Austin Klausing at third base, a groundout to the mound, and a flyout to second base.

Sautter led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a single and was bunted over to scoring position by Lammers before Niese reached on an error to set up the 2 RBI game winning double by Swift to keep the Fighting 63rd’s record unblemished at 4-0 on the year.

63rd open season with victory

OTTAWA, OH – Ottawa Post 63’s first game of the season came with its fair share of challenges at times but when the darkness began to set in and the top of the 8th inning wrapped up the Fighting 63rd had outscored Troy 13-8.

Coming off of an 8-12-2 season and with just four players returning from last seasons squad the 63rd opened their first contest with a new lineup and opportunities to shine for their young club.

Kalida’s Brady Laudick got the start for Ottawa on the mound and surrendered four walks in the first inning, but saw just one turned into a run as he got a strikeout and a groundout from the bottom of the Troy order to help limit the damage against his team on the new scoreboard installed at Memorial Park.

Eight batters came to the plate for the home squad in the bottom of the opening frame and three would find themselves crossing home plate in the inning. Jackson Lammers (Miller City) got things going first as he doubled to the left field wall. Corbin Niese (Miller City) was issued a walk and Austin Swift (Kalida) singled to drive in a run. Ryan McCracken’s (Van Wert) RBI ground out to short and Austin Klausing’s (Kalida) sacrifice fly brought in the remaining two runners.

Troy Post 43, coming off of a 41-18 season last year that saw them reach the Great Lakes American Legion National Regional for the first time since 1970 came out swinging in the second inning as they plated five runs of their own to take a 6-3 lead into the bottom of the second.

Ten batters came to bat for Troy in the top half of the inning that began with a single from Frank Gnuca and ended when Gnuca grounded out to Lammers at short following every one of his teammates having had their turn on the offensive end against relief pitcher Jordan Tovarnak (Shawnee) who came in with one out in the inning.

Following a pair of scoreless innings on both side the visitors punched across a run in the fourth to take a 7-3 lead in the game.

Ottawa responded to their opponents marker in the fifth and sixth innings as they tallied eight runs to take an 11-7 lead into the seventh led by a triple and a double by Swift and McCracken to start the fifth, and a trio of singles by Niese, Swift, and Van Wert’s Ryan Stoller that followed up a leadoff double by Ada’s Brayden Sautter in the sixth.

Braden Nesbit (Tipp City Bethel/Muskingum) added the last run for Troy as he smacked a ball over the right centerfield wall to cut the Ottawa lead to 11-8 in the seventh before his next six teammates would be retired in order to end the game.

Corbin Niese singled to open the bottom of the seventh, Austin Swift was hit by a pitch on a 3-2 count, and McCracken singled in a run as all three would come around to score in the final Ottawa at bat before their turn came to an end.

McCracken finished the day 3-5 at the plate and with 4 RBI for the victorious Fighting 63rd (1-0) while Van Wert High School teammate Stoller finished 2-4 with a run scored and a walk on the day.

Lima Senior Junior Josiah Shoemaker (1-0) snagged the win for his squad while Noah Roswell (0-1) took the loss for Troy (2-3).
