Eagles Fall to Jarrell 5-0
In a game that closely resembled last week’s game with Cameron, the Lexington Eagles let one inning decide the baseball game. Jarrell scored five runs in the fifth inning, the only runs scored in the game, to defeat the Eagles. You may remember the Eagles lost to Cameron 9-0 last week, with all the runs scored in the fourth inning. The other innings tell you the Eagles are capable of playing with any of the district leaders.
After holding Jarrell to two hits in the first four innings, Jarrell got five singles, a walk, and a three base outfield error, to score the five runs. The five runs scored after the Eagles had retired the first two batters in the inning.
W.E. Meuth deserved better for his first start on the mound this year. He kept the defending state champions at bay the other four innings. Chase Hibbeler tossed a perfect 1-2-3 sixth inning.
Lexington had a chance to score in the first and fourth innings. Both involved Kogan Garrett. Garrett reached second on an outfield error by Jarrell in the first inning. That threatened when Garrett was caught trying to advance to third. Garrett then led off the fourth with a triple in the gap in right centerfield. Two strike outs and a dribbler back to the mound left him stranded at third.
