Jays split doubleheader with Thunder

In the final regular season match-up for both squads, the Nemaha Central Thunder invaded Somerset Park on Thursday, May 12, to take on the hometown Sabetha Bluejays. The Thunder captured the first game, 21-3, and the Jays took the second game, 16-5, to earn the split.

Game one

In the opening game, the Jays committed three errors and surrendered 16 hits to go down in defeat 21-3 after five innings. The Jays could only manage four hits in the game with junior Matthew Garber going two for three at the plate with two RBIs, with one of those hits a double.

The Jays threw five pitchers at the Thunder during the course of the game in order to rest some arms for the upcoming regional action. 

Game two

In the second game, the Jays rebounded nicely and scored 16 runs on 15 hits to win the game, 16-5. 

Sophomore Aiden Lang went three for three at the plate with one of those hits a double. Sophomore Chase Frey went two for two at the plate with an RBI, and junior Josh Herrmann and senior Tristan Wittwer each picked up a pair of hits. 

Wittwer was on the mound for the first inning and gave up no runs on two hits with one walk and two strikeouts. Herrmann came on in the second and allowed no runs on no hits with one walk and three strikeouts. Frey pitched the third inning and allowed three runs on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts. 

Sophomore Jacob Grimm pitched the fourth inning and allowed two runs on two hits with two walks and two strikeouts. Junior Nathan Voos closed out the game for the Jays and allowed no runs on one hit with two walks and one strikeout.
