Kitsap BlueJackets still winless
So far the road hasnt been any kinder to the Kitsap BlueJackets.
After getting swept by Corvallis (Ore.) last weekend to open the West Coast Collegiate Baseball League season, the BlueJackets (0-6 overall, 0-5 in WCCBL play) remained winless after falling 7-2 Tuesday and 9-4 Wednesday against the Wenatchee AppleSox (4-1 overall).
In Tuesdays loss to Wenatchee, the Jackets held an early 1-0 lead when first baseman Bucky Aona took hold of an Owen Jones offering, driving the pitch out for his first homer of the season.
The lead didnt stick however, as the AppleSox jumped all over Kitsap starter Chad Wagner (a Sequim High School product) for six runs on nine hits in 3 2/3 innings. Wagner didnt get much help defensively however, as the Jackets committed four errors.
Aona finished 1 for 3 with two runs and his solo shot, while Brandon Decker was 3 for 5.
In Wednesdays game, Wenatchee never gave the BlueJackets a chance, torching starter Alec Reichle for five runs (four earned) on six hits in one inning. James Douglas didnt fare much better, with three runs scoring off five hits in his inning of work. Sean Greer eventually settled things down, lasting five innings while allowing just one run.
Offensively, Kitsap couldnt get on track, scoring three runs in the eighth inning to cut the deficit to its 9-4 finale.
Central Kitsap product Aaron Johnson finished 2 for 4 in the game, driving in three runs. Kitsaps Brian Heere went 2 for 2 with two runs. Both hit doubles.
Kitsap wrapped up the series with Wenatchee last night, but results were unavailable at press time.
