Prep Baseball Roundup

NEW RIEGEL — Things weren’t looking good for New Riegel starter Logan Schalk after one half inning Tuesday.

The Blue Jackets’ pitcher gave up six runs to Seneca East in the first frame, and after two innings found himself down 7-2.

But Schalk righted himself, which allowed his teammates to stage a comeback.

Schalk threw two scoreless innings to finish up his outing, and the Blue Jacket hitters put up a six-spot of their own in the third. They pulled ahead with a four-run fifth inning, and downed the Tigers 12-9.

Schalk finished throwing four innings, allowing seven runs, six earned, on six hits and four walks. He didn’t strike out a batter.

Chris Acree picked up the win for the Blue Jackets, throwing two innings in relief. He allowed two runs, one earned, on a hit, three walks and a strikeout. Nick Reinhart threw a scoreless seventh to complete the win.

Reinhart had a big day at the plate, with a double, two singles, two RBIs and three runs. Eric Theis scored twice, had a hit and drove in a run, while Schalk and Hunter Hohman singled, scored and drove in a run.

For Seneca East, Andrew Daniel started and went three innings, allowing eight runs on five hits. Only one of the runs was earned. Daniel struck out three and walked two.

Rickie Lacy had two hits — including a double — scored a run and drove in a run. Andrew Kalb had two runs and two RBIs for the Tigers (4-2), while Carter Lacey singled and drove in two runs.

Northmor trips Bucks

GALION — Northmor jumped out to a 5-0 lead after three innings, and despite its pitchers allowing Buckeye Central hitters 13 hits, was never challenged in a 7-2 win.

The Bucks’ offense was paced by Brady Biglin and Alex Kinney, who had three hits each, with Kanney driving in a run. John Wurm singled, scored and drove in a run for BC (2-9).

Biglin took the loss.

Prenatt solid on mound, at bat for BHS

BELLEVUE — Ethan Prenatt pitched into the sixth inning and struck out seven, and Bellevue took the lead in the first inning and never looked back, beating Huron 6-2.

Prenatt threw 5 1/3 innings and allowed two earned runs on six hits, walking four. He picked up the win. He also helped himself at the plate with a double, a run and two RBIs.

Garrett Vickery singled, scored and drove in a run for the Redmen, Jacob Montgomery singled and scored, Dalton Hay had a single and an RBI, and Philip Putnam singled and scored.

Montgomery closed things on the mound, going the final inning and two thirds and not allowing a run. He gave up a hit and walked a batter, striking out two.
