The final game of the Jets 2nd Annual Invitational Tournament presented by Haven Agencies had a taste of everything. After the game being tied until 6th inning, 2 players ejected (1 from each team), quality hitting and oustanding pitching the game finally saw the Jets come out on top 3-1.
Austin Cooper started on the mound going 4 innings allowing 3 hits, 1 unearned run, 0 BB’s, and 3 K’s. Cole Stober threw a scoreless 5th inning allowing 1 hit, Jamin Heller threw a scoreless 6th inning to earn the win and Tyler Vavra threw a scoreless 7th inning allowing 0 hits, 0 runs, with 1 BB, and 2 K’s to earn the save.
Offensively, the game only saw 10 hits total with the Jets getting 6 of them. Adam Nelubowich ended the game going 2 for 3 with a double and an RBI, Mark Clauson ended the game going 2 for 3 with a game winning RBI double, Lionel Morrill was 1 for 2 with a double.
