Jaguars: Out­last­ing the Pi­rates

The Covington News - - Sports -

by Brad Lunsford and sev­eral mis­cues by the op­pos­ing de­fense, the Jaguars had inched closer, trail­ing 10-7 af­ter five in­nings.

Con­tin­u­ing to sit back and pick the Pi­rates apart, the Jaguars came from be­hind by scor­ing five more runs in the sev­enth to take a 12-10 lead.

Af­ter a late sev­enth in­ning blow up by the Pi­rates coach, lead­ing to an ejec­tion and an early seat on the bus, the Jaguars used the mo­men­tum to their ad­van­tage. Af­ter giv­ing up one run in the eighth and hav­ing two more run­ners in scor­ing po­si­tion in the ninth, closer Brent Hendrick de­cided to shut the door on the Pi­rates by record­ing his third strike out of the game.

Trent Free­man led the Jag- uars by go­ing 5-for-5 with five sin­gles and one RBI.

“I was strug­gling a lit­tle early in the sea­son,” ad­mit­ted Free­man, “but now I am start­ing to see the ball and I am get­ting them to fall for me. It was a great early sea­son win and has (got­ten) us ready for the rest of the sea­son.”

Kevin Boyd had three RBIs. Jeremy Riehn was 3-for-5 with two RBIs.
