The Bunceton Dragons baseball team had one of those nights Tuesday night while hosting the Jamestown Eagles in CCAA action.
Aside from committing seven errors in the ballgame, the Dragons also struggled to score runs while managing only two hits through seven innings of play in a 10-2 loss.
Bunceton coach Tony Turner said although the Dragons scored two runs their bats became very cold from the start with only three baserunners the whole game.
Of course it didn’t help that Jamestown led Bunceton 2-0 after one, 4-0 after two or 7-0 after four. The Eagles also plated two runs in the top-half of the fifth to extend the lead to 9-0. Meanwhile, after Bunceton scored its only runs of the ballgame in the bottom-half of the sixth, Jamestown came back and added another run in the seventh to seal the win.
Wolfe picked up the win on the mound for Jamestown while Dillon Alpers took the loss for Bunceton, who dropped to 3-4 on the season. Wolfe pitched the first-five innings and struck out 12 batters. He also walked two.
For Bunceton, Alpers pitched the first three innings and surrendered four runs on five hits and three walks. Rylee Knapheide, Blake Petsel and Dylan Flatt also took their turns on the mound for the Dragons. In all, Bunceton pitchers gave up 10 runs on 11 hits and six walks while striking out four batters.
Jamestown also out-hit Bunceton 11-2, with Flippin and Perez each collecting three hits.
