A look at the eight first-round series in the NBA playoffs:



No. 1 INDIANA PACERS (56-26) vs. No. 8 ATLANTA HAWKS (38-44)

Season series: Tied, 2-2. Indiana posted a pair of victories two weeks apart in February but the Hawks won the first and last meetings. The final one was perhaps the low point of the Pacers’ season, when they were held to a franchise-low 23 points in the first half of a 107-88 home loss on April 6.

KALIDA — It was a wild baseball game on a brilliant but windy Thursday afternoon/evening between Putnam County League combatants Fort Jennings and Kalida at historic Holy Name Ballpark in Kalida.

The Musketeers took the early lead, only to see the host Wildcats reply with a 7-run first inning.

They made it stand up for a 15-6 victory.

Connor Wallenhorst led off the top of the first with a double to left against Kalida starter and winner Colton Farrell (4 1/3 innings, 3 hits, 4 earned runs, 2 bases-on-balls, 3 strikeouts), Dylan Van Loo sacrificed him to third and he scored when Mark Metzger doubled to left. However, on appeal, Metzger was called out for failing to touch first. Ryan Rau lined out to keep it 1-0.

HILTON HEAD ISLAND, S.C. — There were no major letdowns for Masters contenders Matt Kuchar and Jordan Spieth at the RBC Heritage on Thursday.

Kuchar, who tied for fifth at Augusta National, shot a bogey-free 5-under 66 to share the first-round lead with Scott Langley and William McGirt.

The 20-year-old Spieth tied for second behind Bubba Watson last Sunday and continued his strong play with a 69, part of a large group tied for fifth at Harbour Town Golf Links.

Kuchar and Spieth both spent much of Sunday in the pressure cooker that is the Masters’ final round. But neither player allowed any lingering disappointment or fatigue from a grueling week to slow them down here.
