Dutchmen nine score FRC, district win over Sullivan

Posted

Kill two birds with one stone.

That was the goal Monday night for Tyler Ahring’s Owensville Dutchmen as they welcomed Sullivan’s Eagles to OHS Field in a baseball showdown with Four Rivers Conference (FRC) and MSHSAA Class 4, District 4 implications.

Thanks to a three-run first inning and a two-run second, it was mission accomplished for the Dutchmen behind sophomore Jordan Rabbitt shutting out the Eagles 5-0 on 88 pitches scattering six hits and a walk to go with three strikeouts.

Benefiting from three double plays throughout the game, Rabbitt was helped tremendously by the pitcher’s best friend.

Owensville’s three-run first inning began with a walk to Dominic Grigaitis and a Derek Brandt bunt single.

With Bryce Payne on the base paths courtesy running for Grigaitis, the Dutchmen junior scored when Gavin Loague reached on a fielder’s choice.

Eli Wilson then drove Brandt in on a RBI single before Loague scored on a Logan Evans RBI ground out.

During Owensville’s two-run second inning, Rabbitt helped his own cause with a one-out walk before scoring later in the inning.

Grigaitis singled before Payne scored OHS’ final run of the game on a RBI double off the bat of Loague.

This win quickly erased any memory of their 15-6 loss to Potosi last Friday night.

Owensville also won the JV game 7-2 over Sullivan with Garrett Crosby and Jaden Gerlemann each scoring two runs.
