6/27 vs. Pocahontas 5-11 L (7-10)
For the last week of the regular season, the Jaguar Baseball team hosted the red hot
Pocahontas Indians. The Indians have been red hot as of late, but the Jags were even with
them after five innings. In the fifth inning after a 50/50 call went in favor of the Indians, they
capitalized with a three run homer which gave them a 7-3 lead. The tough call at second would have been the third out, instead pitcher Hane Sorenson keep pitching and came away with the loss. Hane was getting ground balls but made the big mistake giving up the home run. He gave up eight hits and three walks on the night.
The Jaguar bats were leaning heavily on their three seniors, Kolson Kruse, Caden
Larson and Colby Russell. All three had hits on the night with Kolson’s being a double and
Colby coming up with big at bats with a double that scored two runners along with a Sac fly
getting his RBI total up to 4 on the day. Caden Larson had the other lone hit which was again timely as it allowed another runner to cross the plate. The Jags had some big at bats and credit to those who came before them getting on base so they could score them.
Tough losses to a good team but the Jaguars are right there just need to play their best
baseball as postseason approaches this Saturday. Jaguars host Manson vs. South Central
Calhoun starting at five. That game will be followed by Jaguars vs. East Sac which will start
JV ACTION: 2-14 L
Lenix Allbee got the call in to pitch for the JV squad after struggling early with control, he settled in and threw two scoreless innings in the third and fourth. Elias Field came in to relieve Allbee in the fifth and considering his pitching experience was limited he didn’t do to bad. The Jag bats were quite for most of the night with the exception of Carl Berglund who smashed a double. Jared Cloud had a great game having two hits which lead off the second and fourth inning. The other hit for the Jaguars came off the bat of Gavin Weier who killed the ball allowing him to earn the double.
