Jays crush Smith-Cotton in five innings
Tuesday, May 8, 2012
Just before the district tournament is a great time for a team to play its most complete game of the season.
That’s how Jefferson City coach Brian Ash described Jefferson City’s 10-0, five-inning win against Sedalia Smith-Cotton on Monday at Vivion Field.
“We are starting to play better,” Ash said. “There’s certainly room for improvement, but it feels better to be on this end than it did the first 12 games.”
In Monday’s win the Jays did it with a mix of pitching, defense and offense.
Freshman Travis Hennessy struck out five as he picked up the complete-game shutout. He scattered six hits and made clutch pitches when he needed them the most. He walked none and hit a batter.
