04-05-06 Parkway softball remains unbeaten after shutout win


Compiled by Gary R. Rasberry


  Brittany Young had two hits and three runs batted in as Parkway improved to 3-0 on the season with a 7-0 win over Paulding at the Inter-mediate School in Mendon.

  Young, one of the smaller -- and fastest -- players in the area, took advantage of a stiff win blowing out at Mendon, hitting a two-run homer over the fence in one at-bat.

  In the second, she nearly took another out, settling for a run-scoring triple to allow her to have a 2-for-2 day with three runs scored.  Tiffany Steinbrunner shut down the Paulding Panthers, firing a one-hitter and striking out six for her second win of the season.

  Jayme Marbaugh added a double and Ashley Gamble had a run-scoring single to help out the Parkway offense.

  Parkway is at Van Wert on Friday.

Staton shuts down Raiders

  Maria Staton struck out 11 Russia players as New Bremen improved to 3-1 on the year with a 6-1 win over the Raiders in Russia.

  Staton earned her third win of the season, walking two and scattering two hits in the complete-game win.

  Staton also hit well, collecting two hits and two RBI. Jennifer Dick added two doubles for the Cardinals.

  New Bremen hosts Marion Local on Thursday.

Indians run ruled

  Fort Recovery dropped to 3-2 on the season with a 10-0 five-inning loss at Houston on Tuesday.

  Beth May suffered the loss, giving up four runs -- three earned -- in 41/3 innings.

  The Wildcats made things just as tough on reliever Kinsey Wenning, chalking up six earned runs on no hits -- six walks -- in a third of an inning to trigger the run rule.

  Jodi Tobe had the lone hit for the Indians.

  Fort Recovery hosts Fort Recovery on Saturday for a doubleheader.


Cavaliers at .500

  Troy Siefring continues to shine in his comeback from an ACL injury. The Coldwater senior hit a three-run homer in the fifth to help the Cavaliers come back from being down 3-0 to beat Greenville 11-3 at Veterans Field. Coldwater, which lost the first two games of the season, is now 2-2.

  Siefring's shot in the bottom of the fifth was part of a four-run inning to put Coldwater up 4-3.

  The Cavs added seven more runs in the sixth to put the game away.

  That was all that Adam Timmerman needed going the distance in allowing just one earned run and one walk to get the win.

  Steve Borger and Riley Muhlenkamp added two hits each.

  Coldwater will host LCC today at 5 p.m. in a rescheduled game from Monday.

Redskins win wild game

  Despite making eight errors in the game, St. Henry improved to 5-1 on the season with an 11-5 win at Van Wert.

  The game saw two inside-the-park home runs and two hit batsmen for Redskin starter Jay Woeste.

  Other than the two plunked Cougars (3-3), Woeste was solid, striking out four and walking just one to get his first win of the season in a complete game effort.

  Kyle Bruggeman paced the Redskins' hitting attack with a 2-for-3 day, including an inside-the-park homer for the Redskins. Brent Kremer went 2-for-4 with a double. The other inside-the-park round-tripper went to Kyle Smelser of the Cougars.

  The Redskins put up five-run frames in the second and seventh innings to put the game away.

  St. Henry's schedule at the end of the week got busy leading into Saturday's WCSM/St. Henry Bank Invitational.

  On Thursday, Ottoville comes to the Wally Post Athletic Complex for a newly scheduled game. On Friday, the Redskins will make up last Friday's postponed home game with LCC.

  A 10-run fourth inning allowed Minster to trip the run-rule as Jonathan Borges and Jimmy Stechschulte combined for a one-hitter in the Wildcats' 13-0 win in Shelby County on Tuesday to improve to 2-0.

  Borges went the first four innings, striking out nine and walking one in allowing the lone Trojan hit of the game. Stechsculte wrapped up the game with a perfect fifth.

  Eric Bernhold paced the Wildcat offense with a double and three runs batted in. Jake Luttmer added a triple as part of a two-hit day.
