OTTAWA — Findlay’s bats finally came alive on Saturday when the Post 3 American Legion team banged out 14 hits in beating Sandusky 7-3 during the Tawa Run Classic at Ottawa’s Memorial Park.

Zach Kreais singled, belted two doubles and drove in four runs against Sandusky. Tyler St. Clair had three base hits and Trent Reichelderfer (2-1B) and Nick Kidwell (1B, 2B) had two each to back the complete-game effort of Brayden Wentling (1-0).

Findlay managed 14 total hits in two games on Friday when Post 3 dropped games to Van Wert (8-3) and Ottawa (3-1).
