Eagles fly past Bismarck Senators
It was a good night for the boys at Jack Brown Stadium.
The Jamestown Eagles opened Class A West Region Senior Babe Ruth play with a win Monday night. The Eagles topped the visiting Bismarck Senators 9-1 in game one of the team's doubleheader.
It was in the bottom of the fifth that the Eagles took a one-run lead when Isaac Mimong stepped up to the plate with the bases loaded and no outs. Jordan Porter put four in the strike zone sending Mimong to first and Conner Hoyt home to make it a 2-1 game.
The Senators allowed 12 walks and struck out five Jamestown batters in game one.
Five runners followed Hoyt, making it a 6-1 game in favor of the Eagles but the home team wasn't quite done with inning No. 5. Pitcher and recent Jamestown High School grad Tommy Falk cleared the bases - doubling off of a fly ball to left field. On the mound, Falk went all seven innings, allowing one run off of four hits and striking out eight.
Falk, Mason Lunzman, Nolan Nenow and Gage Orr all had an RBI in the fifth. Nenow and Falk each went 2-3 leading the Eagles in batting. The team finished the fifth with eight runs off of two hits. In game one of the doubleheader, the Eagles tallied seven total hits.
The team will face Minot at Jack Brown on Wednesday. The doubleheader is slated to start at 5 p.m.
