Game One

In the opener, the Jays pounded out 13 hits enroute to scoring 11 runs. Sophomore Gabe Garber led the onslaught with five singles while driving in two runs. Seniors Brandon Brownlee and Blake Frey each drove in a pair of runs with two hits apiece, and the Jays once again had a very balanced offensive attack.

Senior Trevor Kramer got the starting nod for the Jays and pitched 4-1/3 innings, allowing just three runs on five hits while striking out two and giving up one walk.

Sophomore Braden Argabright came on in relief and pitched 2-2/3 innings, giving up no runs on just two hits with two strikeouts and two walks.

Head Coach Aaron Frey said the team played well in game one.

Senior Preston Bruning led the Jays with two RBIs, while senior Seth Burdick went two for four at the plate.

Junior Joe Gruber went to the mound for the Jays and lasted one inning, allowing four runs on three hits along with three walks and three strikeouts.

Bruning, senior Brett Stallbaumer, and Agrabright came on in relief for the Jays and only allowed the Eagles five runs on four hits for the remainder of the game.

Frey said game two was tough for the Bluejays.

“In game 2, we struggled early on the mound and had some defensive lapses and just couldn’t quite recover,” he said.
