North Delta dropped their first decision of the summer, 9-7, to the Golden Triangle Jets on Tuesday night.
The Jets scored all nine of their runs over the first four innings, highlighted by a two RBI double by Demetrins Bonner in the first, and RBI double by David Bowen in the third and an RBI double by Daniel Short in the fourth that made it a 9-0 game.
The Dealers opened the fifth with back-to-back singles by Jonathan Andrews and Cody Carson, which later led to the team’s first run, a balk that plated Andrews. North Delta later scored six runs in the fifth off three hits, including a two RBI double by Jeremy Carlisle. The outfielder from Senatobia led the Dealers with two hits. Short and Bowen each had two hits for the Jets, who picked up their second win of the season.
Former New Albany pitcher Tyler Basil made his first appearance of the summer, pitching 4.1 innings, allowing four runs off four hits with seven strikeouts.
Ben Hellums had the loss on the mound for North Delta, allowing five runs off five hits and was relieved by Basil in the third inning.
Coy Sorenson had the win for Golden Triangle, allowing the Dealers’ first run but gave up only four hits. Gardner Richey had the save, pitching the final 1.2 innings.
The Dealers (4-1-1) will face the Thunder on Saturday and the Tribe on Sunday while Golden Triangle (2-4) will play the Rascals on Sunday.
