VAN WERT — The Cougars plated 12 runs in the first inning en route a 14-2 run rule over Crestview on Monday night.

In that first frame each batter in the Cougars’ line up came around to score as it wasn’t until the tenth batter that  Crestview recorded an out. Van Wert came around to score 12 runs on seven hits and six walks.

Keaton Brown scored in the third inning after he knocked a triple, eventually scoring on a sac fly. Owen Treece led off the fourth inning with a double and eventually came around to on a single by Rupert.

The Knights plated a run in the first and second inning. Gerodot led off the game with a triple to right field, scoring on a ground out the very next batter.

Short began the second the same way— with a triple. He scored on a sacrifice fly the next batter.

Owen Treece got the win for the Cougars, throwing four innings and striking out three. Treece allowed two earned runs on two hits (both triples) and two walks. Keaton Brown threw the fifth and final inning out of the pen.

Sheets began the game on the mound for the Knights but didn’t record an out. He allowed six earned runs on five walks and hit.

Lictensteiger, Meffard and Short came in to relieve Sheets. They combined to throw four innings, allowing six more runs on 10 hits.
