Tigers take pair from Jays

The Sabetha Bluejay baseball team traveled south to Jeff West on Thursday, April 26, for double header action. The Jays tasted defeat for the first time this season, losing both games of the twinbill.

In the opening game, the Jays took a 2-0 lead into the bottom of the sixth behind the pitching of senior Brayden Becker, but the Tigers battled back with three runs in the inning to take a lead that would hold up for the final inning and give the Tigers the 3-2 decision.

In the nightcap, the Tigers scored eight runs in the first three innings to take a lead that would hold up until the end with the Tigers winning 8-5.

Game ONe

In the first game of the day, the Jays outhit the Tigers six to five but still came up short. Sophomore Gabe Garber went three for four at the plate with one RBI, and senior Brandon Brownlee was two for three at the plate with a pair of doubles.

Becker pitched the entire game for the Jays, allowing three runs on five hits with six strikeouts and one base on balls.

Game Two

In the second game, junior Joe Gruber went to the mound for the Jays and pitched three innings — allowing eight runs on three hits with four strikeouts and one base on balls.

Sophomore Braden Argabright came on in relief and pitched three innings — allowing no runs on two hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Senior Riley Herrmann led the Jays’ hitting attack, going one for three at the plate with two RBIs.
