It’s hard to imagine Jared Ginter hitting the ball better than he has in the first three games of the American Legion baseball  season for Blue Springs Post 499/Fike.

The Blue Springs South graduate, who registered a three-hit game in Fike’s opener, went 4-for-5 with three RBIs in an 11-3 victory over the Lee’s Summit Hawthorne Bank Outlaws Thursday at Legacy Park.

Fike coach Jim Moran said an assistant coach asked Ginter before Thursday’s game how big the ball looked to him.

“He held his hands like the size of a softball,” Moran laughed.

C.J. Egelston also stroked three hits as Fike rallied from a 3-1 deficit with a seven-run fourth to pull ahead 8-3 before tacking on another run in the fifth and two more in the sixth.

Kyle Nix picked up the victory by working 6 1/3 innings and striking out four as Fike improved to 3-0.

“Nobody can complain about starting 3-0,” Moran said. “We were down early, but the guys just kept hanging in there.”

Fike topped the Robert L. Clore Post 189 Bulldogs 6-1 in the second half of a doubleheader on Wednesday. Carson Messner connected on a pair of hits and drove in two runs to lead Fike.
