WAUSEON - A windy spring Saturday highlighted a three-way day of baseball between No. 6 (D-II) Wauseon, No. 22 (D-II) Lima Shawnee and No. 25 (D-III) Westfall.

In game one, Wauseon slugged out nine runs on 12 hits to defeat Lima Shawnee 9-4. South Carolina Sumpter commit Jake Trejo started the bottom half of the 1st off with a double to the left-center gap. Two batters later, Ty Suntken drove in two with a double in the gap, later scoring on a double from University of Toledo recruit Josh Cales, who paced Wauseon at the plate blasting a single and two doubles in the first game. 

Junior Axel Bueter was on the bump in the first game for Wauseon and the lefty went four innings allowing two runs on four hits, while striking out five.

Tobie Azoez had two singles and Cory Wilder a double off the top of the left-field fence for Shawnee.

The second game was between Lima Shawnee and Westfall and it was a wild back-and-fourth game, going to the Mustangs 15-9. Westfall scored the final seven runs of the contest.

Junior second baseman Clayton Spires and unsigned senior catcher AJ Kazmierczak paced the Mustangs at the dish. Spires, the lead-off batter laced a triple and double, while the two-hole hitter, Kazmierczak, played a huge part in the victory with two singles, a double and a stolen base.

William Kleffner had a single and home run for Shawnee and Zack Peake a single and double.

In game three between coaching brothers Trent Thomas of Wauseon and Trevor Thomas of Westfall, Wauseon's Ty Suntken was the story, as he dueled against Lake Erie commit Alek Stonerock. Suntken went the distance allowing just two hits and no walks while striking out nine.

Stonerock, a intimidating righty, went just 3 1/3 innings allowing three earned runs while striking out six. Stonerock was consistently in the mid 80s. Stonerock also went 2-2 at the plate with a single and double.

At the plate, the Indians pounded out 10 runs on 11 hits. Trejo and Cales led the way, Cales blasted a home run and single, while Trejo roped a double in the 10-0, six-inning win for Wauseon.

Wauseon improves to 4-1 on the season, the lone loss coming in the season opener to Defiance (No. 3 D-II). Westfall now stands at 2-2 while Lima Shawnee falls to 2-4.
