PERRYSBURG - Perrysburg's baseball team connected for 12 hits Saturday en route to an 11-2 season-opening win over visiting Lake.
Kyle Durham had three hits for Perrysburg, and Austin Lee, Mark Delas and Gus Dimmerling each had two.
The Yellow Jackets built a 6-0 lead over the first four innings before Lake's Jayce Vancena hit a two-run double in the fifth.
Nick Munger and A.J. Stockwell pitched a five-hitter for Perrysburg, striking out four and walking three. The Yellow Jackets played errorless defense.
"We played well," Perrysburg coach Dave Hall said.
The Yellow Jackets are striving to win the Northern Lakes League title after going 16-13 overall and 7-7 in the league last season. They won the NLL in 2011 when they lost in the Division I state title game.
"This was a nice way to start the season," said junior Mark Delas, one of Perrysburg's 11 returning lettermen. "Now, we need to build on this and continue to get better every day."
Casey Blank singled twice for Lake, which returns just two starters from last season when it was 24-6 overall and won the Northern Buckeye Conference with an 11-3 record.
"We just have to be patient with them and their roles aren't defined yet," Lake coach Greg Wilker said. "We're going to sort through that. I was pleased with ourĀ  bats. We had some good at-bats against some quality pitching. We did all right in the field, but we just had too many mental blocks. To compete against good teams, you can't have those." - GORDON
