Ozark Classic - April 3rd

Ozark Classic Tournament
Harrison Arkansas
April 3, 2010

The tournament games for Friday night were rained out. Amazingly they were able to play games on Saturday after over 6 hours of rain on Friday night.  The fields were still wet and soggy but playable.

The first game was against the Blue Eye Bulldogs from Missouri, the Southwest Central League 2009 champions.  They went ahead of the Jaguars early following a grand slam in the 1st inning. The Jags finally got their first run in the 3rd after John Tyree hit a sacrifice fly scoring Caleb Baca.  Then in the third the Bulldogs hit another home run giving them a 6-1 lead.  The Jags added a run in the 3rd, 4th, and 6th but not enough to overcome the lead built by the Bulldogs. Jebadiah Penrod and Ben Beaver each had two hits in the game.

Jaguars   0 0 1  1 0 1 0    3 5 2
Bulldogs  4  1 1  0 0 0      6 7 1

Sam Brownwood started the game for the Jaguars. He allowed 5 runs (3 earned), 2 hits (1 home run), 1 hit by pitch, 3 walks and 2 strikeouts. Austin Ervin made his Jaguar debut pitching 4 good innings. He allowed one earned run, 5 hits (with a double and a home run), 1 walk and 4 strike outs. Cole Wilson closed the game with 3 up 3 down.

The second game was against the Pocahontas Redskins from Arkansas.  The game was scoreless through 3 innings. John Tyree was doing a great job pitching. Right fielder Ben Bradley threw out a runner at home plate to prevent them from scoring in the 2nd inning.  In the top of the 4th the Jags scored 3 runs. Joe Sabatini started the inning with his first double of the day and scored on an error that put Ryan Blake on base. Erik Willis walked then scored on Cole Wilson's RBI single. Cole stole second base and then Ryan came in to score and steal home.  In the 5th inning Andrew reached on a blooper single, stole 2nd, then scored on Jebadiah Penrod's 1st HOME RUN of the year giving the Jags a comfortable 5-0 lead. In the bottom of the 5th, the Redskins answered with a two run homer.  But the Jaguars weren't done scoring yet adding 4 more runs in the 6th inning. John Tyree hit a 2 run single then scored on Joe Sabatini's second double of the day. Erik Willis then hit his 2nd double of the day scoring Joe and giving the Jags a 9-4 lead which held up for the final score. Helping the Jags with two hits a piece in the game included Joe Sabatini, Erik Willis, Cole Wilson, and Josh Ferguson.

Jaguars   0 0 0  3 2 4 0   9 11 1
Redskins 0 0 0  0 2 2 0   4  6 2

John Tyree started and recorded the win. He pitched 6 solid innings allowing 6 hits (1 double, 1 home run), one walk, and 4 strike outs.  Cole Wilson closed the game with another 3 up 3 down inning with 2 strikeouts.

4th Place - because of the rain the tournament had every team play two games and then figured placement according to how many runs were allowed and what side of the bracket they were on after the first game. The Jaguars were awarded the 4th place trophy.

THIS WEEK:  The JV Jaguars play this week against Webster on Thursday at Reed Park. Then the JV will play in a JV Festival in Bristow, OK on Friday and Saturday.  Varsity's next game at this time is Monday, April 12th when they will play against Barnsdall followed by the JV game.  Then another HOME GAME is Tuesday, April 13th at LaFortune Field against Bristow at 4:30! Come out and support the JAGUARS!!!

Another way to support the Jaguars is to attend or help sponsor the CAR WASH on April 10th, 
10 am - 2 pm. The Varsity Jags will be washing cars just south of 71st & Aspen (145th) in Broken Arrow at 2107 West Greeley Street, Broken Arrow . A big THANK YOU to C & C Janitorial and Lannie and Sheree McDaniel for opening their place of business for the car wash.
