Rams drop series to JJP 3-1 & 8-1

Monday your Berkner Ram Varsity Baseball Team hosted JJP. The Rams gave their guest all they could handle posting a 1-run lead in the bottom of the 1st that stood until the top of the 4th when a 2-base error allowed the Mustangs their leadoff at 2nd. After a nifty fielder’s choice rundown by the Rams getting the lead runner out the Mustangs were able to advance a runner to 2nd then third on a deep fly ball. A single then drew JJP even with the Rams where the game stood deadlocked until the top of the 8th where 3 hits and an error yielded a 3-1 lead for the Mustangs which would prove to be the final.

On a short Easter week the two teams matched up again Thursday night. The Mustangs played host to the Rams. The Rams were able to move their leadoff hitter Soph Bryce Drayton to 2b in the top of the 1st but recorded an out at 3b when the throw from the catcher beat Drayton to the 3b bag. In the top of the third Sr Elias Munoz would score the Rams only run on an overthrow by the JJP catcher. The Mustangs took advantage of a few Rams miscues in the 1st inning and would limit the Rams to a single hit on the evening taking the game 8-1.
