Jays capture doubleheader from Tigers

 

Sophomore Gabe Garber prepares to scoop up this hit ball in center field during the varsity baseball game Monday, April 23, against ACCHS.

The Sabetha Bluejay baseball team hosted the ACCHS Tigers on Monday, April 23, at Somerset Park. The Jays captured victories in both games and remained undefeated on the season.

In the opening contest, the Jays used a nine-run second inning to propel them to a 14-1 victory. In the nightcap, the Jays scored 15 runs in the first three innings to end the contest quickly.

“We did what we had to do last night. We threw strikes, played good defense, and put together some crooked number innings,” said Head Coach Aaron Frey. “We play at Jeff West on Thursday. The winner of those games will likely be in the driver’s seat for league.”

GAME ONE

In the opening contest, the Jays pounded out 13 hits on their way to scoring 14 runs ending the contest after 4-1/2 innings.
