Jackets pad their stats
Jeff Davis High’s 3-game series sweep of Dodge County did a lot to help the Jackets with their season stats.
Carter Mullis led the series at the plate, going 7-for-10 with eight RBI, lifting his batting average to a team-leading .389, with a team-leading RBI total of 18.
Duke Stone was 4-for-6 with seven RBI, upping his batting average to .326 and giving him 15 RBI for the season.
Alex Mason was 4-for-6 with three RBI, leaving him with a .339 batting mark and giving him 16 RBI.
Mullis, Mason and Stone, all juniors, have the top three batting averages among the starters, and senior Cason Clance is fourth with a .325 average.
As a team, the Jackets have a collective .287 batting average.
Mason’s two homers in the Dodge series gives him three for the season which leads the team.
The pitching staff’s performance in the series served to drop the earned run averages for all the pitchers. Stone pitch seven innings, Mason and Andrew White four innings each, and Jonathan Bohannon two innings. None of the four gave up any earned runs.
Stone’s .677 ERA leads the team followed by White’s .737 and Mason’s .808. Stone leads the team with 59 strikeouts, Mason has 47 and White 32.
The Team ERA is .926.
