  • The game was switched to Rolla.
    But the new-found home-field advantage didn't do the Rolla High School baseball team much good against the tough Jefferson City Jays on Wednesday.
    Jefferson City jumped on RHS early and went on to post a 10-0 victory over the Bulldogs Wednesday on FCNB Field at the Bray Sports Complex.
    The non-conference game had originally been scheduled to be held in Jefferson City but was moved to Rolla for field condition reasons.
    The Bulldogs fall to 7-9 while Jefferson City improved to 13-2.
    Jefferson City outhit Rolla by just a 7-4 count. However, the Jays took advantage of four walks, three hit-by-pitches and two RHS errors.
    The Jays got all the runs they needed with a three-run first inning. The visitors added three runs in each of the third and fourth innings and one more in the fifth.
    The game was stopped after five innings due to the run rule.
    Sophomore Andy Satulla, senior Michael Pickrell, senior Hayden Nielsen and junior Bryan Peach each had a hit for Rolla.
    Senior right-hander Zach Lewis was the starting and losing pitcher for RHS, allowing seven hits, seven earned runs and four walks over five innings.
    Corey Beard paced the Jays' offensive attack, going 2-for-3 with four RBI and two runs scored, including a three-run home run in the second inning.
    Cameron Carroll was the starting and winning pitcher for Jefferson City, allowing four hits over three innings.
    Jefferson City also won the junior varsity game 14-4. Mason Pickrell and Cameron Clayton led the Rolla jayvee hitting attack and Marshall Dean had the best day on the mound for the RHS jayvee squad in relief.
    Rolla was scheduled to compete in the Houston JV Tournament on Saturday, weather and field conditions permitting.
    The RHS varsity and jayvee teams are slated to travel to Joplin on Tuesday for Ozark Conference action, starting at 4:30 p.m.
