In game two they had a big sixth inning with six runs in that at-bat to roll past the Sabetha Lobos 11-1 in a 10-run rule game after seven innings Friday night at Rathert Field. Game one was already a scheduled seven-inning contest.
Junction City coach Derek Fisher says a four game winning streak sounds good. “It’s something that we didn’t do that first week, but it’s part of it when you’re trying to jell a bunch of new guys together. You got to get through that part and hopefully it turns out to be a good time. Right now that’s happening.”
Some new players have arrived for the Brigade team. Fisher noted Christian Rawlings pitched three innings of relief and gave up just one run in the game one victory over Sabetha and in that contest a K-State newcomer, Blake Burrows hit a home run in his first at-bat. Burrows will be a freshman at Kansas State.
The Brigade will host Sabetha again Saturday night at 7 p.m. at Rathert Field. It will be Junction City / Geary County United Way night at the ballpark.
You can hear Saturday night’s game on 1420 KJCK beginning with the broadcast beginning at 6:50 p.m.
