The Jays roughed up Blue Springs 11-4 in the first game and battled Eureka in the semifinals before falling to the Wildcats 5-3.

“We battled,” Jays coach Brian Ash said after Friday’s game against Eureka at Vivion Field. “You can handle taking some lumps as long as your kids compete and play and do the things you expect them to.”

Against Blue Springs, the Jays put together a 13-hit performance and a 10-run fourth inning. Rob Vernon highlighted that frame with a grand slam, while Connor Arcobasso hit a solo shot to cap off the inning.
