June 27, 2010

The Jackson Giants American Legion baseball team split a pair of games at homer with the Rock Springs Mustangs on Thursday night, winning the first one 13-3 in six innings and dropping a tough one in the second, 18-16. In the first game, Andy Renz started and picked up the win, giving up three runs on four hits, before giving way to Sean Sonderman in the fourth with the Giants leading 8-3. Sonderman kept the Mustangs scoreless and allowed just two hits. Leading the way for the Giants was Christian Doyle, who went three-for-four with two RBIs, while Marc Rossolo was two-for-four with two RBIs and Joe Madsen went two-for-three with three runs scored.  Carlos Toledo was also two-for-three with two RBIs. The Giants ended the game with 14 hits.

In the nightcap, a seven-inning, three-hour marathon, the Giants were down 7-0 after an inning and a half.  In the bottom of the second they rallied for eight runs, with the big blows coming from Doyle with a three-run double, and Patrick Renz who knocked a two-run homer. The game was backand forth the rest of the way, with the Mustangs plating three in the seventh to take the win.  Rossolo went four-for-five with four RBIs and Carlos Toledo also homered in the fourth. Jackson pounded out 16 hits in the loss, while the Mustangs tallied 17. The Giants are now 9-8 on the season, heading into the Powell Heavy Metal Invite beginning on Friday afternoon.

JH Giants Drop a Couple of Games to the Cody Cubs

June 3, 2010
The Jackson Hole Giants American Legion Baseball team dropped a couple of games to the Cody Cubs on Wednesday night at Giants Field, losing the first 12 – 2 with the ten-run mercy rule invoked after five innings. The second game ended with a 10-6 score. The Giants tied it at six in the bottom half of the sixth but the Cubs put up four in the seventh then held Jackson to take the game. Ethan Moulder, on in relief of Patrick Renz in the sixth, took the loss, giving up four runs on seven hits. Cody pounded out 13 hits in the game, including two home runs in the third.  Jackson had only five hits scattered throughout the game.

In the opener, Andy Renz started and took the loss, giving up eight runs on five hits in two and two-thirds innings, but was victimized by five Jackson errors. Dylan White pitched the final two and one-third innings.  Cody touched the Jackson pitchers for 10 hits in the first game.

The Giants are now 5-2 overall and 1-2 in Northwest Conference play, with the non-conferenece Riverton Raiders coming to town for a double header beginning at noon on Sunday at Giants Field.
