Jasper Reds fall in openerJuly 27, 2013
From Herald Staff Reports
In their opening game of the National Baseball Congress World Series, the Jasper Reds expected the El Dorado (Kan.) Broncos to be a difficult opponent to topple. The feeling held true.
El Dorado pounced for four runs in the first inning and chewed through three Jasper pitchers to cruise to a 10-0, six-inning victory in first-round play of the tournament Friday night in Wichita, Kan. El Dorado captured the NBC World Series title in 2009 and rolled in this year’s opener as Jasper High School product Karson Nixon (3-3) started and absorbed the loss. Adam Lane and Mitch Hunnicutt offered relief; Reds pitchers combined to walk five batters and hit three.
The Reds (9-4) also committed five errors on the all-turf field while being limited to two hits, including a double by Zach Deutsch.
Jasper will face the Austin (Texas) Gold Sox at 1 p.m. Sunday in the next round of the double-elimination tourney.
