Dawgs sweep Jays in doubleheader

The Rossville Bulldawgs came to Somerset Park on Thursday, May 6, for a pair of games and defeated the hometown Jays 8-6 in the opener and 6-1 in the nightcap.

Game One

The Jays out hit the Dawgs 10-9 in the opening contest and held a 6-3 lead going into the top of the fifth, but the Dawgs put up four runs to take the lead and shut out the Jays for the remainder of the contest.

The Jays jumped out early with a 3-0 lead in the first, but five errors in the contest came back to haunt them. Sophomore pitcher Josh Herrmann, senior right fielder Darrin Funk, and junior second baseman Tristan Wittwer each collected a pair of hits with Herrmann and Wittwer hitting doubles.

Herrmann was on the mound for the Jays and went four innings allowing three runs on four hits with one strikeout and one walk. Funk came on in relief in the top of the fifth and gave up four runs on four hits. Freshman Christian McAfee pitched the last two innings and gave up one run on one hit with two strikeouts.

Game Two

In the nightcap, the Jays collected eight hits but could not manage to get any runs across the plate as Rossville prevailed 6-1 for the sweep.

The Dawgs pounded out thirteen hits and scored five runs in the last three innings to hold off the Jays. Senior Drew Schmelzle went two for three at the plate to lead the Jays.

Senior Kaleb Evans pitched seven innings for the Jays allowing six runs on thirteen hits with eight strikeouts and two walks. The Jays are idle this week before they compete in regional action next Monday, May 17, at Rock Creek.
