The Jimtown Jimmies (6-4) came into the contest a little short-handed but that didn’t stop them from coming away with the win on Senior Night over rival Bremen 5-2.
Before the game, the Jimtown Community honored the Seniors Cooper Frank, Braden Garner, Jaryd Widup, Kole Ross, and Chris Maldonado for their 4 years of commitment to the baseball program.
The Jimmies got an outstanding start on the mound from Jr. Darrian Gillespie (1-0) who battled the constant rain to pick up his first career victory on the mound! Gillespie went all 7 innings giving up only 1 earned run on 2 hits and struck out 7 Lion hitters.
Gillespie also carried the hot stick last night going 3-3 with 2 RBI’s at the plate. So. Sam Garner added 2 RBI’s on a 2-3 night from the plate.
The Jimmies will look to do battle with the Northwood Panthers on Thursday Night with first pitch scheduled for 5 PM down in Nappanee Indiana.
