6/15 EAST SAC W 8-7 (9-7) (3-3)

June 27, 2016

The Jaguars can take a long breath of relief cause after this game the entire fan base, players and coaches were getting a little nervous towards the end of it.  The Jaguars won the game but the way they did it was the real story that night.  With a 5 to 2 lead going into the seventh inning the Jaguars sent out Senior pitcher Cade King to finish up the gem of the game he had thrown so far.  A decision the coaches were wishing they had done differently as East Sac came in and scored five runs in the bottom of the seventh to take a 7 to 5 lead over the Jaguars.  All of a sudden a game that seemed in the bag was now a long shot away from winning.  However, never underestimate the Jaguar baseball team as they steamed back in the 7th inning to score three runs and snatch the win away from the Raiders of East Sac.  The night belonged to the team but Cade King did it on the mound and at the plate.  No hit was bigger than the one Cade hit to score Courtesy Runner Nyles Johnson and win the game.  There were a lot of plays that won the game for the Jaguars, and a lot that could have ended it sooner but the Jaguars keep fighting and never gave up even with being down 6 varsity players, and down by two runs they never quit. 

Leading the sticks for the Jaguars was Jackson Housken going 2 for 3 while Cade King was 2 for 4, with the big RBI at the end of the game.   Other Jaguar contributors were Mitchell Reck getting a huge single which scored a run, and Carter Steck had two huge RBI’s one coming in the last inning after a huge suicide squeeze which scored a runner and was such a good bunt allowed him to reach first base.  Not to be outdone by big plays Junior Nolan Brand came through with a huge dinger, which sailed over the left field fence for his lone hit on the night but an important one in the final outcome of the game.

1st pitch honoree on the night was Conner Conrad, who was honored for his achievements in basketball, football, and golf this past season.  While also scoring his 1,000 point this past season, after his throw maybe he should have gone out for baseball!  Congrats Conner
