DELPHOS — Doubleheaders the last two Saturday’s haven’t been too kind for Jefferson’s baseballers as they dropped a pair each to Parkway and Bath on the road.

Saturday’s home twin-bill versus Leipsic at Wildcat Field was much better as they swept the Vikings 9-0 and 7-1.

In game 1, senior Tyler Rice (2-1; 6 innings pitched, 2 hits, 1 base-on-balls, 5 strikeouts) and freshman Jace Stockwell (1 IPs, 1 hit) combined for the 3-hit shutout.

At the plate, Austin Jettinghoff (2 runs, 2 runs batted in) and Jordan Herron both went 2-for-3 and Gage Mercer 2-for-4 (1 run, 1 RBI). Stockwell scored twice.

A 7-run sixth inning blew it open.

Rader (3 IPs, 2 hits, 1 BB, 2 Ks) was the starter but reliever Pierce Henry (3 IPs, 7 hits, 9 runs, 2 earned, 1 BB) took the loss. Leipsic committed six errors.

In the nightcap, starter Jordan Herron — limited to three innings (2 BBs, 2 Ks) — got the win and Josh Teman (4 IPs, 2 hits, 1 ER, 2 BBs, 2 Ks) the save.

Stockwell (2 runs, 1 RBI) and Ross Thompson (2 RBIs, 1 run) both went 2-for-3 and Hunter Binkley (2 runs) stole three bases.

Logan Selhorst lasted 12 pitches as the Viking starter (2 BBs, 1 hit batter) without registering an out in the first frame. Ross Schroeder (5 IPs, 5 hits, 4 runs, 3 earned, 1 BB, 2 Ks) and southpaw Tyler Selhorst (1 IP; 2 hits, 2 ERs, 2 BBs) mopped up.
