Baseball: Ford powers Jefferson past RMA

By staff reports
JEFFERSON -- Jefferson used a three-run second inning to erase an early deficit en route to a 7-1 victory over Riverside Military Academy Tuesday in Region 8-AA baseball action.

Max Ford got the win for the Dragons (7-3, 3-0 Region 8-AA) allowing one run while scattering five hits and striking out 11 in six innings.

Christian Hutch provided what would be the go-ahead run with an RBI single in the second inning scoring Andy Nicolaus for a 2-1 lead. Hutch finished with three hits and two RBI for the game.

Micah Carpenter had two hits and one RBI for Jefferson. Ford, Trent Sorrells, and Hanon Price each had one hit for the Dragons, who added a run in the fourth, two in the fifth, and one more in the sixth inning.

Riverside scored first in the top of the first inning on a RBI double by Mike Green scoring Stephen Wechsler, who had singled with one out.

Collin Pettell took the loss allowing seven hits and seven runs in 4 2/3 innings, but only two were earned as the Eagles committed five errors in the game.

Wechsler, Green, Watson Thomas, Ross Gasque, and Ben Herman each had one hit for the Eagles.

Jefferson next will travel to rival Commerce on Wednesday.
