Eagles Shut out Jarrell 2-0

by Mike Organ

Jacob King gave Lexington its second pitching gem of the week. King pitched a complete game, shutout of the Jarrell Cougars in Salado. It was King’s first complete game blanking of the season. It could not have come at a better time for the Eagles. With the win Lexington moves into sole possession of the fourth and final playoff seeding.

Lexington’s first run came in the top of the first inning. Tanner Mueth singled with one out. Nathanael Clifford singled, putting two runners on base. Walker Hess singled to plate the first of two Lexington runs for the night.

The second Eagle run came in the fourth inning. Colby Bexley laid down a sweet bunt for a single. Ryan Garrison lashed a triple to the outfield fence. Bexley was able to score from first on the blast. King limited the Cougars to five singles, all scattered throughout the line-up. Only once did the Cougars seriously challenge King’s offerings. In the bottom of the third, after two singles, the Cougars called for a double steal. Eagle catcher Conner Dodd easily threw out the leading runner at third base, when Hess applied the tag. The Eagles turned a double play to stop the Cougar threat in the second inning.

The Eagles continue to rise to the occasion as the season draws to a close. The Eagles can lay undisputed claim to a seeding with a win over Franklin, Tuesday night at Eagle Field.
