The Pleasanton baseball and softball team traveled to Uniontown on May 6.

It was not a good day for both the boys and girls as the baseball team lost their double-header 20-4 and 14-1, and the softball team lost their games 20-10 and 19-7.

In the first game for the baseball team, the Jays were able to score two runs in both the first and second innings but the game still ended in three innings. This is because Uniontown scored seven runs in the first and 13 runs in the second to win the game 20-4.

Tony Gillespie was 1-1 with a run scored while Karsten McKee was 1-2 with a run scored. Koltyn Struttman was 2-2 while Cameron Oberlechner was 1-1 with a run scored. Aden Dumcum also had a run scored.

The second game was much the same except neither team scored as many runs. The Eagles still won in a rout, 14-1.

Bryce Johnson was 2-2 in the game while Dumcum was 1-2. Gillespie scored the Jays’ only run of the game.

Individual stats were not available for the Lady Jays’ 20-10 and 19-7 losses to the Lady Eagles.

Currently the Lady Jays stand at 2-14 and are the eight seed in the 2-1A Mound City Regional. They are two games behind Crest that sits at 4-14.
