RIO DE JANEIRO — The headline from the World Cup, Day 6: Big favorite Brazil is vulnerable.

Those who thought the World Cup host or world champion Spain — thumped 5-1 last week by the Netherlands — would walk away with this should think again.

Proving the old adage that there are no easy games in football's showcase, Brazil failed to beat Mexico for the first time at the World Cup, held Tuesday to a 0-0 draw in their second game in Group A.

VAN WERT — For the second time in four days, the Van Wert Cougars played a team from Delphos in ACME baseball.

On Friday, the Cougars traveled to Delphos and romped against the Jefferson Wildcats, winning 16-2.

The Cougars hosted the St. John’s Blue Jays Monday and remained perfect against their Lincoln Highway neighbors with a 9-2 victory.

The Blue Jays loaded the bases in the first inning with consecutive hits by Austin Heiing, Jesse Ditto and Buddy Jackson. Eric Vogt’s blooper to center knocked in Heiing as the bases remained jammed. Van Wert starting pitcher Caleb Jenkins retired the next batters to leave the bags full of Jays to escape the first-inning jam.

Jacob Youngpeter started for St. John’s and held the Cougars hitless until Ryan Stoller singled with two outs in the third inning. After a balk and a stolen base, Mason Carr walked to put runners on the corners. A wild pitch by Youngpeter allowed Stoller to come home a even the score at 1-1.

Just as the Cougars blew the game wide open against Jefferson on Friday with a big inning, Van Wert scored six runs in the fourth to jump out to a 7-1 advantage. The Blue Jays committed four fielding errors in the frame, hit a batter and Stoller had a run-scoring single, along with an Ethan Williams’ double, to chase Youngpeter. Gage Seffernick came in and retired Jenkins to end the inning.

St. John’s scored again in the sixth inning as Jackson reached with one out and went to second base on an overthrow. Vogt’s grounder to second base took a bad hop and went into center field for a hit to score Jackson as the Jays trailed 7-2. Josh Warnecke singled to put two on with only one out but Jenkins again got out of the inning retiring the final two batters.

CONVOY — The Jefferson ACME summer baseball team rallied from a 4-3 deficit and scored the last five runs to double up Crestview 8-4 in action Monday at the Crestview Athletic Complex.

The Wildcats scored the first three runs in the top of the fourth frame, with the host Knights answering with one in the home half and three more in the bottom of the fifth.

The Red and White tallied three runs in the visitors’ sixth and two in the seventh.

Josh Teman got the pitching win, going the first five frames (4 hits, 2 bases-on-balls, 4 unearned runs, 1 strikeout; 62 pitches, 34 for strikes), with Jace Stockwell getting the save with two frames of 1-hit, 2-strikeout relief (37 pitches, 25 strikes).

Gaige Rassman (3 runs, RBI) and Jake Pulford (run) went 2-for-3 to pace the Wildcat 6-hit attack.

Crestview southpaw Justin Overmyer started (3 2/3 IPs, 2 hits, 4 BBs, 3 earned runs, 4 Ks; 68 pitches, 33 strikes) but righty reliever Spencer Rolsten took the loss (2 1.3 IPs, 3 hits, 1 BB, 3 runs, 2 earned, 1 hit batter, 2 Ks; 38 pitches, 23 strikes). Preston Gerardot threw an inning of 1-hit, 1-walk, 2-unearned run relief.

COLUMBUS GROVE — Kalida took advantage of seven hits in the first inning Monday evening to defeat Columbus Grove 7-1 in ACME baseball action at the Columbus Grove Athletic Complex.

Kalida moved to 8-1 on the summer.

The Wildcats sent nine batters to the plate in the first inning to score six times in getting the early advantage on the Bulldogs.

The first three Wildcat batters in the first inning set the tone for the game banging out hits giving Kalida a quick 2-0 lead.

Austin Swift opened the Wildcat first with a single to center and he scored from first base as Drew Hovest lined a double to left-center field. Drew Hovest scored as Brent Hovest hit a ground rule double over the right fielders head.

Brent Hovest stole third base as Bulldog starter Elisha Jones was striking out the fourth batter of the inning. Brady Laudick made it a 3-0 game with a double to left-center and he moved to third base as Noah Lambert dropped a short single into right field and Lambert took second base when the throw from the outfield got away from a Bulldog player.

After a popup to third base for the second out, Nathan Meyers lined a single to right field that scored the two base runners and he took second base on the throw home. Trent Siebeneck made it a 6-0 game with a single to right-center before Siebeneck was picked off first base to end the inning.
