The Bunceton Dragons baseball team had another game played in what head coach Dustin Ray said is their signature style while losing to the Jamestown Eagles in a walk off by a score of 9-8.
“We came out and hit the ball extremely well throughout the lineup, scoring a good amount of runs and being a scoring threat throughout the game,” Ray said. “We still have the defensive struggles that continue to cost us  runs in close games. Not making three plays allowed Jamestown to score five runs. Hats off to Jamestown for their continuous fight to come back and win a ball game.”
The first five innings couldn’t have looked any better for the Dragons, who led at one point by five runs at 8-3 after three. Bunceton also took a 8-4 advantage after 4 1/2 before giving up three runs in the bottom half of the fifth. But where Bunceton ran into trouble was in the bottom half of the seventh while giving up two runs for the loss.
Sorrells picked up the win in relief for Jamestown while Hunter Shuffield took the loss for Bunceton, who dropped to 9-4 on the season. Sorrells pitched one inning in relief of starter Oerly and gave up just one hit while striking out one batter. Shuffield, meanwhile, pitched 1 1/3 innings in relief of starter Dillon Alpers and allowed two runs on two hits and one walk.
