Jarrell took all hopes of a playoff spot away from Lexington with an 11-4 defeat of the Eagles on senior parents’ night. Jarrell struck quickly, scoring four runs in the opening turn at the plate. Lexington put up two runs in the second inning, to close to 4-2. It stayed 4-2 until the fourth inning, when Jarrell posted a marker. In the fifth, Jarrell put it away with a five-spot, finishing with one run in the sixth.

The game started with a bang. The first Jarrell hitter got a single, but the next batter hit a perfect double play ground ball that went undone because of an Eagle error. Three consecutive singles and another Eagle error allowed the four runs.

Lexington got their two runs on a walk to Jason Washington, a wild pitch, and a single by Tyler Krenek that moved Washington to third, and then, a passed ball on the Jarrell catcher allowed Washington to score, with Krenek moving to second. Kevin Letbetter got his first RBI of the season with a single to left, scoring Krenek.

With Jarrell up 10-2 in the top of the fifth, Lexington got two back with a walk to Strain and an RBI double by Kogan Garrett. Logan Meuth walked and W.E. Meuth lofted a fly ball to centerfield to score Garrett. Lexington never mounted another threat.

W.E. Meuth pitched the first four innings for Lexington. Chase Hibbeler, Jakob Moreland, and Tyler Krenek finished up for the Eagles.
