The Sophomore team fell to the Cedar Rapids Washington Warriors 8-7 in 8 innings. All of the J-Hawks runs were scored in the 4th, in which they sent 12 batters to the plate. During the inning, the J-Hawks took advantage of several Warrior errors. Tyler Unkel hit a big 2 out triple for 2 RBI's to add onto the J-Hawk lead. The Warriors battled back, forcing starting pitcher Chaise Donner out of the game after throwing 5 innings. The J-Hawks turned to Cole Ingalls, who came in throwing strikes. He would strike out 3 batters in 2 efficient innings. In the 8th, the Warriors were finally able to get to Ingalls, and pushed across the winning run on a popup just behind 3rd base that fell.
The Sophomore team will play the Warriors again tomorrow night at Veteran's Memorial Stadium, home of the Cedar Rapids Kernels. They will be the curtain raiser again for the Varsity, first pitch at 5:00 pm.
