Jesuit Frosh Baseball versus St. Mary's

The Jesuit Marauders Frosh baseball team played their 19th game of the season against the St. Mary's Rams. The Marauders had beat the Rams twice already this year: 10 to 3 on March 12 and 10 to 5 on March 19.

Jack started the game in centerfield and led off. He has been struggling the last couple of games and unfortunately had his worst game of the season at the plate.

At the plate, Jack was 0 for 4. In his first at-bat, he ran the count to 3 and 2, fouled off two pitches and struck out looking on a nasty curve ball. Jack fell behind in the count 1 and 2 in his second plate appearance. He fouled off two pitches, took two balls and then struck out swinging on a high fast ball. Jack said after the game that he has been swinging too hard and trying to kill the ball. In his third at-bat, Jack grounded a 1 and 0 pitch back to the pitcher and was thrown out at first. He grounded a 2 and 2 pitch back to the pitcher in this fourth plate appearance and was thrown out at first. Over the course of the four at-bats, Jack fouled off seven pitches.

Jack continues to play solidly in the field. He played seven innings in centerfield. Jack had three put-outs on fly balls to center and left center.

The Marauders jumped out to a 3 to 0 lead in the top of the first, but never scored again. Leading 3 to 2 after four innings, they gave up 2 runs in the bottom of the fifth and 3 runs in the bottom of the sixth. The Marauders lost the game to the Rams by the score of 7 to 3. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.

Iwasa was the starting pitcher; he left the game in the fourth inning. Wolger (3 - 1, ERA 5.31, 7 starts, 1 appearance) was the losing pitcher.

The Jesuit Frosh baseball team now has 14 wins and 5 losses. In league, they have 7 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders next game is Monday, April 22 at Del Campo. This will be there first game against Del Campo this season; the first game was rained out.
