Despite Improvement Jays Drop Pair
May 18, 2012Jamestown Senior High School
Despite showing improvement from their losses earlier in the week to the Minot Majettes in fastpitch action, the Blue Jays dropped a pair of games on Thursday night in McElroy Park 16-5 respectively in both games.
Jamestown got off to a fast start in game one leading 3-0 at one point, but it was Minot taking the lead 4-3 after three innings and never looking back the remainder of the game. Game two of the double header featured a close game at 1-1 going into the top of the 3rd inning when Minot broke it open for 6 runs in the top of the frame. The Blue Jays managed to score 3 runs in the bottom of the fourth and one in the fifth, but Minot proved too potent and was able to get 4 runs in the 4th, 2 in the 5th and 3 more in the 6th.
Sophomore Alicia Beckman was the offensive standout for the Blue Jays on the night as she was 4 for 5 on the night with a double and two triples. Blue Jays travel to Dickinson today to play the Midgets and finish up the regular season schedule.
