Jesuit Frosh baseball versus Del Campo

The Jesuit Marauders played the Del Campo Cougars in their 20th game of the season. This is the first time they have faced Del Campo; the first game was rained out.

Over the last couple of weeks, Jack has played against the tougher teams. The coach has played a line-up of players who are further down on the depth chart against clearly weaker teams. I think that this has hurt Jack somewhat; he has not had a chance to get his swing going against weaker competition. He has also not had a chance to pad his statistics in the blow-outs...

Jack started in centerfield and led off against Del Campo.

He was 1 for 1 with a walk, a double and a run scored. In his first at-bat, Jack walked on six pitches. He went to second on Sam's walk, to third on Nick's fielder's choice and scored on Kyle's single. Jack drove a 0 and 1 pitch into right center for a double in his second plate appearance. He was thrown out trying to steal third.

In the field, Jack played two innings in centerfield. He didn't have an assist or a put-out.

The Marauders jumped all over the Cougars. They scored 8 runs in both the third and fourth innings and 7 runs in the fifth inning. There is a 10 run rule in place, but only after 5 innings. Scoring in five straight innings, the Marauders won by the score of 30 to 0. The score box is here and the score card is here.

Jacobi ( 1 - 1, ERA 0.88, 1 start, 3 appearances) was the winning pitcher. Beards pitched the fifth inning.

Unpacking the car when we got home, Jack turned to me and said "how can they be so bad?" I talked to the coach a little before the St. Mary's game on Saturday about how appalled I was with the level of some of the competition. He acknowledged that the competition was probably a little worse than most previous years. The Marauders have 10 runned 5 of their last 7 opponents.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 15 wins and 5 losses. In league, they have 8 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Wednesday, April 24 at home against Bella Vista.
