A great baseball game against the NEMO Tigers last night had everybody on the edge of their seats!

JCBI 12U split a pair of league games at Twin Oaks on Wednesday evening. In the first game JCBI lost to the NEMO Tigers 8-7 in extra innings. In the second game JCBI beat the Mid-Missouri Magic 21-8.
The NEMO game arguably could have justified (but did not see) Mississippi Brave managerial antics. Ross Shelton singled and scored to lead off the 6th inning and spark a 3 run rally that tied the game. Dylan Brauner scored 3 runs on 2 hits, Alex Cuneio had 2 hits with a double, run scored and 1 RBI, Jake Laughlin had 2 hits with a double, run scored and 2 RBI; Dan Haynes had 2 RBI, Corey Beard and Alex Johnson each had 1 RBI and Sam Atkinson scored a run. Joey Smith was the starting pitcher, Sam Atkinson gave up
1 run 2 runs in 4 innings of relief and took the loss.
In the second game the 11U Magic gave up 14 walks and 11 hits in 3 innings. Brauner led JCBI hitters with an inside the park homerun, 4 RBI and 3 runs scored. Haynes had a triple, 3 RBI and 3 runs scored, Laughlin had 3 RBI and 3 runs scored, Cuneio had 3 RBI and a run scored, Smith and Erick Standlee added 2 RBI each, with Johnson and Brenden Ogletree each adding an RBI. Alex Cuneio was the starting pitcher and Haynes picked up the win in relief.
