JV Dogs split first two games
By Greg Sullivan
The JV Dogs baseball team split their games last week, beating Jackson County in a nine inning marathon and falling to Newton in a 17-4 blowout.
The team won on a ninth inning walk-off walk over Jackson County last week, Cody Lovin got things going for the JV Dogs, going three for five with three RBI.
Drew Stapleton, who got the win for the Dogs, also went two for three with two runs scored.
"He looked phenomenal for his first time out," said JV Head Coach Josh Reeves of Stapleton.
The Dogs were down 5-2 early but came back to go up 7-5. The score was tied at 7-7 after seven so the game went into extra innings.
"It was a good overall team effort," Reeves said.
Things didn't go as well against Newton Monday night.
The Dogs led 4-0 after the first inning and everything was looking good early.
"That's where the wheels came off," Reeves said.
Newton scored 17 runs in the second and third inning and then the game was called early due to Newton's scoring.
