Jamestown Eagles hurlers struggle in road losses at Dickinson
The Eagles gave up 17 earned runs in the two games.
DICKINSON, N.D. — The Jamestown Eagles and the Dickinson Roughriders went into the bottom of the third inning with the Eagles up 4-2. A 10-run frame changed that as the Roughriders got a 13-8 win Thursday, June 30, at Astoria Field in Dickinson.
The Eagles starter Connor Hoyt struggled pitching 2.2 innings giving up six hits and nine earned runs, with 11 runs total, while striking out four and walking three.
Roughriders starter Isaac Daley went two innings, only giving up one hit but allowing three earned runs and walking five.
The only hit that Daley gave up was a Payton Hochhalter RBI double in the top of the first to score Hoyt and put the Eagles up 1-0. The last batter that Daley faced was Hochhalter who worked a bases loaded walk in the top of the third inning to tie the game at 2-2.
Daley helped his own case at the plate though as he hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the first to go up 2-1. After he was removed from the mound, Daley moved to first and hit another two-run home run in the bottom of the third to put the Roughriders up 5-4. Daley finished the first game going 2-for-4 with five RBIs.
Back-to-back doubles in the top of the fourth saw the Eagles cut into the deficit and make it a 12-8 game but it wasn’t enough to cut into the deficit.
