Jarrell Jinxes Lexington Eagles

by Mike Organ

W.E. Meuth pitched a two-hitter at Jarrell Tuesday night. The only problem was the Eagles made five errors behind him, allowing the Cougars to defeat Lexington 3-1.

Jarrell scored first in the bottom of the fourth inning. A single, followed by one of the errors, put a runner on third base and another on first. A long sacrifice fly to left field provided the Cougars with their first run.

In the top of the fifth inning, W.E. provided most of the Eagle offense for the night. He was hit by the opposing pitcher when at bat. He stole second base and moved to third on Colin Wiggins’ ground out. A wild pitch enabled Meuth to score the tying run.

Jarrell answered on the bottom of the fifth on a single and two Eagle errors.

The entire Eagle offense, other than the score without the aid of a hit, was Kogan Garrett’s two singles. The Jarrell pitcher was being evaluated by a Minnesota Twins scout, so this was not a bad showing by the Eagles.
