The Jersey Community High School Panthers baseball team had a tough stretch last week, dropping four games in a row. The latest game was against the Triad Knights on Tuesday.
The first two innings against the Knights were scoreless for either side as neither team could produce a run. The Knights went to work in the top of the third with three runs scored. The next inning yielded nothing to the knights, but the Panthers managed to score a run and moved the game to 3-1. The Panthers followed in the bottom of the fifth inning with another run and brought the score to 3-2.
With the Panthers on the verge of tying the game, the Knights pulled ahead in the top of the sixth and scored one more run. The Panthers failed to score in the remainder of the game and lost 3-2.
This was only one of the Panther’s previous four-game losses. They lost to the Highland Bulldogs, 8-3, on Wednesday; then lost, 5-4, to the Granite City Warriors, last Thursday; and finally, they suffered another defeat at the hand of the Edwardsville Tigers, 7-3, last Friday.
The Panthers hold a win-loss record of 14-16 so far. They have a conference record of 3-7.
