JAMESTOWN – The Jamestown Blue Jays returned home and scored 13 runs in the first inning and that was a sign of things to come as they got a 24-5 win over Turtle Mountain Community High School on Monday, May 8, at Lyle “Trapper” Lawrence Field.

Throughout the entirety of the game, the Blue Jays did not go down in order at any point and were only held scoreless in a frame once, in the third inning. Out of the 12 Blue Jays that came to the plate, nine players got hits.

The Braves struck first on an RBI groundout in the first inning but two batters into the bottom of the first the score was tied at one. The Braves defense hurt them in the first ame as they had nine errors including three in the first inning that scored runs as the Jays’ lead went to 13-1.

In the second inning, the Blue Jays’ Rylee Joseph hit a triple to score two runs and push the lead out to 15-1. The Jays senior finished the first game a single away from the cycle as she went 3-for-4 with six RBIs and four runs.

The Blue Jays’ Avery Graves hit a three run shot in the fourth to push the lead out to 20-4. It is the freshmen’s fourth long ball of the season. The final Blue Jays runs of the day came off the bat of Joseph as she sent a ball over the wall in left to push the lead out to 24-4.

Blue Jays keep offensive explosion going in game two:

The Blue Jays offense kept it up in the second game of the doubleheader as they scored five runs in the first inning and kept it up getting a 12-2 win over the Braves.

The biggest swing of the early going came when the Jays’ Torrie Mack smoked a ball over the wall in left for a grand slam to push the lead out to 5-0. Mack now has three homers over the last five games with all three of them being grand slams. Mack finished the second game going 3-for-3 with four RBIs and two runs and a walk.

In the bottom of the fourth, the Jays’ McKenna Nold hit a two run homer to left to push the lead out to 11-1. It was the Jays’ third homer of the second game and fifth of the day combined.
