at Kirsch-Rooney Stadium, Thursday (May 2), Division I quarterfinals series

Records: Rummel, 20-12; Byrd, 20-16


Jackson Dennies, Rummel

The senior struggled with his control early and often, but he battled his way to 5-plus innings of work in the series-opener. He walked four batters in the first inning but only allowed a single run in the frame. By the time he reached maximum pitch count of 115 pitches, he allowed two runs on two hits and five walks and two hit batsmen. He struck out six in 5.1 innings.


· Trailing by a run, the Rummel bats came alive in the bottom of the first. Lance Johnson opened with a single and Ron Franklin was hit by a pitch to put two on with two outs. Chandler Fields laced a double down the left field line to score a pair and Tyler Cook followed with an RBI single to put the Raiders up 3-1.

· The Raiders up single runs in the second and third innings. In the second Jackson Dennies opened the inning with a double and courtesy runner Bradley Pelle scored on a error to make the score 4-1. In the third inning, Franklin opened the inning with a single, stole second and scored on Cook's RBI double to make it 5-1.

· The Yellow Jackets made things interesting in the seventh against reliever Hayden Elwell. Down to their final out, Henry Lott and Matt Randall hit back-to-back singles, but Elwell struck out Saywer LaCoste swinging to end the game.
