5/22 EAST SAC COUNTY - L 2-3 (1-1)

Print Version

The Jaguar Baseball team played their second game of the year at home once again.  East Sac Raiders were the ones coming into play the Jaguars.  Pitching was on point again for the Jaguars as Freshmen Kolson Kruse threw one heck of a ball game coming out as he reached his pitch limit.  Kolson allowed 4 hits, 2 earned runs and a great 1 walk in his five innings pitched.  The Raiders capitalized on an error which got runners in scoring position and one well hit ball allowed them to take the lead.  All night the Raiders were off balance and one hit was about all they mustered but it was a timely one.  Sophomore Sam Hanson came in to replace Kolson.  Sam showed a lot of guts coming in during a tough time of the game and allowed no runs, with 3 strikeouts, and 0 hits.  It was a good performance from the two young Jag pitchers. 

                Hitting was good for the Jaguars out hitting the Raiders 8 to 4 but the Jags could never get a big timely hit like the Raiders had, leaving 12 baserunners stranded.  Leading the Jags was Jacob Slininger who came with his first start for the Jaguars in the DH position going 2 for 3 with a double, and driving in one runner.  Jackson Housken stayed hot going 2 for 4 also with a double and had a sharp hit ball in the 5th inning with bases loaded.  The ball was misplayed by the second baseman and booted right to the shortstop standing at second for the force and third out of the inning.  The luck of the bounce was not in the way of the Jaguars on the night and a few plays were the deciding factor between a win and a loss.  Fellow senior Xavier Nichols was also 2 for 4 on the night while the other seniors Coledon Bethel and Colton Kamp each went 1 for 3.   It was a tough pill to swallow for the Jaguars losing a tough one at home


                History repeated itself again in the JV game against the East Sac Raiders as the JV team dropped a 5 to 6 close ball game.  Zack Miller was on the mound for the Jaguars, pitching well only allowing a few hits and Parker Garcia replaced Miller for the last inning of pitching.  Hitting wise the Jaguars were led by Memphis Simpson and Hunter Sorenson who each had one hit and Memphis scoring twice.  All the other runs were earned by walks that eventually scored.
