On Friday, Jefferson senior Christian Ott
went 2-for-2 with four RBIs and a walk — and that was just in the third inning.
It was an inning to remember for the Eagles, who sent 23 batters to the plate and scored 17 runs in the third, en route to an 18-1 victory over Badger (Lake Geneva, Wis.), according to the Daily Jefferson County Union
Even more impressive than the run total is the fact that the Eagles did all their scoring without the benefit of a home run in the inning. Instead they compiled two doubles and 10 singles in the wild frame.
Jefferson actually trailed for the first time all season, 1-0, in the top of the second inning. An inning later the offensive onslaught began.
"Their pitcher kept us off balance the first time around," Jefferson coach Greg Fetherston told the publication. "We’re a tough-hitting team — it’s going to be tough for pitchers to face us — that second or third time around we’re going to get some good swings."
Ott delivered a three-run double in the inning while his brother Dylan Ott
added a two-run double.
Not to be lost in the offensive display was the pitching performance by Jefferson senior Andy Brahier
, who allowed only an unearned run on two hits while striking out seven.
Jefferson is ranked No. 1 in the Wisconsin Baseball Coaches Association Division 2 poll.
