After playing a doubleheader against Pleasant Grove on Tuesday, the Jesuit Marauders JV baseball team played a doubleheader against the Davis Blue Devils at Jesuit High School. Davis played a double header against Pleasant Grove on Monday. The Marauders beat the Blue Devils last year by the score of 6 to 0 and earlier this year at Raley Field by the score of 5 to 4.
Leading off in the first game, Jack was 1 for 4 with a stolen base and a run scored. In his first at-bat, Jack hit a 2 and 2 pitch for a hard grounder up the middle for a single. He went to second on Cosca's walk. Jack stole third when the pitcher tried to pick him off second, but he beat the relay throw to third. Jack scored on Sam's single to left. Running the count to 2 and 2 and then fouling off a pitch, Jack struck out looking in his second plate appearance. In his third at-bat, Jack struck out looking again on a 2 and 2 pitch. Jack struck out swinging on the seventh pitch of his fourth plate appearance on a curve ball. He hit a shot down the third base line that was just foul on the sixth pitch of the at-bat.
Playing centerfield for seven innings, Jack had four put-outs.
With the Marauders trailing by the score of 3 to 2 in the bottom of the sixth, the Marauders scored three runs on Kyle's lead-off triple, Bryce's single, Kevin's walk, Sogard's sacrifice bunt and Cosca's single. Sam came in to pitch the seventh. The Marauders held on to win the game by the score of 5 to 4. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.
Kane (3-0, 1 start, 7 appearances, 17.33 innings, 3.63 ERA) is the winning pitcher. Stiltner (2-0, 1 save, 2 starts, 3 appearances, 11.33 innings, 1.24 ERA) gets the save.
Between the games, AD's mom arranged to feed both the teams and the parents with Mexican food. At this point, I was really curious to see how much pitching Davis had left. The answer came fairly quickly.
Leading off in the second game, Jack was 1 for 1 with two walks and two RBIs. In his first at-bat, Jack walked on five pitches. He went to second and then third on a pair of wild pitches. Jack scored on Kyle's ground ball through the left side. Jack walked again on five pitches in his second plate appearance. He went to second on Cosca's bunt single, to third on Alex's sacrifice fly and scored on Kyle's line drive to center. In his third at-bat, Jack lined a lined a 1 and 1 pitch into left field to drive in Jared and Christian. He went to second on Cosca's pop-up in front of home plate, but ended the inning there when Alex flew out to right.
Playing centerfield for four innings, Jack had three put-outs. As I mentioned to Rod, other than the first baseman and catchers, Jack has the most put-outs on the team at this point.
With the Davis pitching unraveling, the Marauders beat the Blue Devils by the score of 15 to 4 in sixth innings. The box score is here and the scorecard is here.
Colombara (1-0, 1 start, 1 appearance, 7.00 innings, 4.00 ERA) got the win. He pitched a complete game.
The Jesuit JV baseball team now has 15 wins and 2 losses. Their league record is 5 wins and 1 loss. The game log is here. The Marauders will play Sheldon in a three game league series next week.
