Jays struggle to execute; handed 11-1 loss by Chaska

By Justin Braun

The Chaska Cubs moved quickly scoring right away in the bottom of the first inning. From there they would continue to tally runs in the third, fourth, fifth, and sixth innings, scoring 11 runs in total and not letting up on the Jays who struggled to execute with baserunners aboard.

Pete Ohnsorg threw a complete game for the Cubs allowing one run on five hits and striking out seven Jays batters.

The Jays managed just five fits stranding seven baserunners and scoring one run. Corey Goodwin went 2-for-3 to lead the Jays while Mitchell Goodwin, Tommy Keating, and Jeff Butler each contributed a hit. Prior Lake had a number of defensive challenges around the diamond that proved costly in the end.

Sam Schlachter started on the mound for the Jays throwing four complete innings allowing six runs (4 earned), giving up seven hits, striking out two and walking two. Matt Cady would provide relief and throw two innings allowing five runs on five hits with three walks.

The Jays are back in action on Tuesday at Eagan’s Goat Hill when they take on the Bandits at 7:00 pm. They’ll return home to Veterans Field on Thursday for a non-league match-up against the Jordan Brewers and face the Eagan Bandits at on Friday night in Prior Lake. Thursday and Friday nights names are slated for 7:30 pm first pitch.
