Jays close out regular season with sweep

The Sabetha Bluejay baseball squad entertained the Rossville Bulldogs at Somerset Park on Thursday, May 4, to close out the regular season schedule. As they have done for most of the season, the Jays swept the two-game series, winning the first game, 13-1, and the second game, 12-2.

Game one

In the opening contest, the Jays collected eight hits and capitalized on three Rossville errors to score 13 runs and end the game after six innings. Junior Aiden Lang led the Jays with five RBIs and punctuated that with a blast over the fence for a home run. Senior Nohl Niehues and junior Chase Frey each collected a pair of hits as once again the Jays featured a balanced hitting attack.

As he has done all season, junior hurler Christian McAfee gave the Jays a solid outing on the mound. McAfee pitched six innings and allowed only one run on three hits with five walks and seven strikeouts.

Game two

In the nightcap, the Bulldogs jumped out to an early 2-0 lead, but the Jays scored 11 runs in the next three innings to put the contest out of reach for the visitors. The Jays used 11 hits and a pair of Rossville errors to end the game and win after five innings, 12-2.

This game, it was senior Josh Herrmann who stepped up on the mound and shut down the opponent. Herrmann pitched five innings and allowed two runs in the first inning, and then slammed the door shut on the Dawgs. Herrmann gave up two runs on three hits with four walks and a pair of strikeouts.

Senior Noah Kroll, junior Christian McAfee and sophomore Mitchel Kramer each collected two hits, with Kramer hitting two doubles and knocking in three runs.
