Jays fall to Dawgs

The Sabetha Bluejay baseball team traveled to Rossville Thursday, May 5, for doubleheader action with the Dawgs. Due to the inclement weather, the second game was canceled, and the Dawgs defeated the Jays, 10-9, in game one despite the Jays rallying in the sixth and seventh innings for a total of seven runs.

The Jays jumped out to an early 2-0 lead after one inning, but the Dawgs tied the game in the bottom of the third inning and then took the lead in the bottom of the fourth with five runs. The Dawgs tacked on three more runs in the bottom of the fifth and took a commanding 10-2 lead heading into the top of the sixth.

The Jays scored four runs in the top of the sixth and then added three more in the top of the seventh, but fell just short of knotting up the game and fell, 10-9. The Jays outhit the Dawgs, 13-9, but once again errors plagued the team as they committed four in the contest. 

Junior Josh Herrmann lead the barrage of hits by going three for five at the plate with an RBI. Senior Tristan Wittwer and sophomore Christian McAfee each had a pair of hits with Wittwer knocking in a pair of runs. Sophomore Aiden Lang had a good night at the plate as well, going two for two with an RBI.

Wittwer was on the mound for the Jays and pitched four innings, allowing seven runs on six hits with five walks and four strikeouts. Herrmann pitched the fifth inning and allowed three runs on three hits with one walk and one strikeout. Sophomore Chase Frey closed out the sixth inning for the Jays and allowed no runs on no hits with one walk.

The Jays took on the Wilson Dragons on Monday, May 9. These results were not available at The Herald’s press time. The Jays will host the Nemaha Central Thunder at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, May 12.
