Yellow Jackets Get Walk-Off Win Over Clay City To Move Above .500

On Monday, August 27th, Yellow Jackets baseball hosted Clay City in a rescheduled WEAA Conference game.  The Yellow Jackets won the game 5-4 in the bottom of the seventh inning to increase their winning streak to three games.  Clay City scored four runs in the top of the first inning with two outs, a bases loaded single, and 3 errors on the same play allowed the bases to clear.  These would prove to be the only runs Clay City would score in the game.  In the bottom of the second inning, the Yellow Jackets scored two runs on an RBI walk by Blake Strine and an RBI single by Jesse Brogan.  In the bottom of the fourth inning, Blake Strine scored on an RBI single by Chase Gher to bring it to within a one run game.  Then in the bottom of the sixth inning, Jesse Brogan scored on a fielder's choice by Brendan Bowser.  Then in the bottom of the seventh inning, with one out and Michael Smith on second base and Jesse Brogan on first base, JD Bowser smoked a double to left-center field to plate Smith for the winning run.  On the mound, Brendan Bowser started and pitched well through the defensive miscues in the first inning.  He was relieved by JD Bowser in the third inning due to pitch count and JD got the final two outs of the third inning.  Jesse Brogan came in to pitch the final four frames and threw scoreless ball to get the win.
