  • The Blue Springs South baseball team didn’t quite get the title it was after.
    But the Jaguars still clinched second place in the Suburban Big Six Conference with a 5-3 win over Raymore-Peculiar on Senior Night Wednesday at Blue Springs South High School.
    Reece Eddins collected the victory on the mound while Austin Nordike tossed the final two frames for the save.
    A three-run second inning boosted the South offense. Jacob Clark singled and doubled and Braden Younkin and Austin Simms each doubled and scored to help the Jags improve to 11-7 and 6-3 in conference.
    PARK HILL 1, TRUMAN 0: Dalton Moats showed the Patriots why he’s considered one of the state’s best pitchers.
    The senior left-hander allowed only one hit, walked three and struck out 16 in leading Park Hill to a Suburban Middle Six victory over visiting Truman Wednesday. Moats also helped his cause with a bloop, two-out, game-winning single in the bottom of the seventh inning.
    The victory assured Park Hill (13-6, 7-2) of at least a tie for the conference title. The teams meet again today with Truman needing a win remain in the conference race.
    “He’s pretty good,” Truman coach John Eglich said of Moats, who has committed to Coastal Carolina.
    Truman (9-7, 4-3) produced only five base runners and saw its six-game winning streak snapped. Stuart Lauber singled to open the fifth inning for the only hit off Moats.
    “We did a lot of things right, pitching and defense,” Eglich said.
    If the Patriots win today, they’d still have to beat St. Joseph Central twice to tie for the conference title.
