Lexington and Jarrell battled evenly for two and a half inning before Jarrell broke away with a four-run flourish. Jarrell then followed that with another four-run inning in the fourth to open an 8-1 lead. Jarrell bats were never to be heard from again.
Lexington drew first blood in the top of the third. Brandon Meyer led off with a walk. Dylan Iselt laid down a sacrifice bunt moving Meyer to second. Chace Sherrill popped a liner into left center for a single as Meyer scored easily.
Starting pitcher, Dylan Iselt was in command until the error bugaboo hit the Eagles. A sharp single led off the third inning. A strikeout got one out on the Cougars with the runner stealing second to put a man in scoring position. A walk and a fielding error loaded the bases for Jarrell. A ground ball to shortstop Josh O’Conner looked like a Taylor-Made double play. But, a dropped ball and a throwing error put all three base runners across home and the hitter on second. A double followed to plate the fourth run.
Jarrell used Eagle errors and some timely hitting to score four more runs in the fourth inning. After the Eagles calmed down they played good ball the rest of the game.
In the top of the seventh O,Conner led off with a double. Jacob Carr followed with a single to drive in O’Conner. A walk to Kogan Garrett and a walk to Spencer Bownds loaded the bases. Carr scored on Chace Sherrill’s grounder to second base and that ended the Eagle scoring for the night.
