INDEPENDENCE — The Cavaliers chose potential over power.

By selecting Kansas swingman Andrew Wiggins over Duke's Jabari Parker with the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA draft on Thursday night, the Cavs are getting a talented, perimeter player who could blossom into a superstar.

And, who knows, maybe play alongside LeBron James.

DELPHOS — Both Jefferson and Elida were looking to shake the rust off their games — with the rains this week calling off any baseball games — as they prepare to begin ACME summer baseball District 5 action today.

They met up Thursday on a bright and warm summer evening at Wildcat Field, each team intentionally using three pitchers to get them innings.

When the Wildcats scored there in the bottom of the fifth, that overcame a 2-run deficit and the Wildcats went on to an 8-4 triumph.

Josh Teman (3 innings pitched; 1 hit, 1 base-on-balls, 2 strikeouts; 25 pitches, 20 for strikes) got the victory in relief of starter Hunter Binkley (2 IPs, 6 hits, 4 earned runs, 1 BB, 1 K; 39 pitches, 22 strikes).

Third pitcher Gage Mercer got the save (2 IPs, 1 hit, 1 BB, 2 Ks; 36 pitches, 23 strikes).

Elida trotted out two lefties: starter Adam Purdy (2 IPs, 4 hits, 2 earned runs, 2 BBs, 4 Ks; 44 pitches, 25 strikes) and reliever Austin Morrison (2 IPs, 1 BB, 2 Ks; 22 pitches, 13 strikes).

Third pitcher, right-hander Garrett Brinkman, took the loss (2 IPs, 5 hits, 6 runs, 5 earned, 2 BBs, 1 K; 48 strikes, 26 strikes).

GLANDORF — Ottawa-Glandorf’s and Van Wert’s ACME baseball teams hadn’t played a game in week.

With ACME sectional tournaments starting this weekend, the two teams were able to shake off some rust Thursday evening as they squared off in regular-season action. The Titans rallied in their final two at-bats to defeat the Cougars 7-5 at the Field of Dreams.

The loss dropped Van Wert to 10-4 on the season, while O-G improved to 3-7.

Van Wert had a 5-4 lead after scoring a run in the fifth inning before the Titans tied the game in the fifth, then scored twice in the bottom of the sixth for the win.

O-G tied the game on a sacrifice fly by Jordan Diemer as pinch-runner Leon Palomo scored after moving to third base on a wild pitch. Ben Deitering was hit by a pitch with one out in the fifth inning was replaced by pinch runner Palomo who stole second base before Austin Williams walked. A wild pitch advanced both runners a base.

After Van Wert left runners on first and third base in the top of the sixth, the Titans scored two, two out runs in the bottom of the inning.
