Owls fall 5-2 to
A late-game offensive spurt by Jennings County decided a game that started as an old-fashioned pitching duel as Seymour’s baseball team lost, 5-2, on Friday night.
Junior Aden Burnside started for the Owls (5-5), pitching six innings and retiring the first nine batters he faced. The southpaw allowed five runs, three of them earned, while striking out seven batters and walking two.
Burnside battled with junior Jacob Vogel, Jennings County’s ace. Vogel pitched all seven innings for the Panthers (3-4), giving up two unearned runs and striking out 11 batters.
The Owls’ offense started well, scoring an early run when freshman Bret Perry crossed home on a groundball off the bat of leftfielder Vince Wilson.
Perry and sophomore Charlie Longmeier each had a hit and scored a run, while Vince Wilson and Brayden Wilson each had an RBI.
Jennings County’s offense came alive after being held scoreless by Burnside during the first three innings. The Panthers scored five runs during the fourth, fifth and sixth innings to take command of the game.
