ROCKHURST 9, BLUE SPRINGS SOUTH 4: The Jaguars fell to 5-3 on Saturday following a loss to the Hawklets.
Rockhurst scored three runs in the top of the first after the Jaguars committed two errors. The Hawlets tallied 10 hits in the game..
“The scoreboard showed four errors on our part, but there were many more mental errors that don’t show up on a line score,” South coach Ben Baier said. “You can’t give good teams extra outs and expect to win. They executed and we didn’t. That is on me as the coach. I obviously didn’t have my guys ready to play today from the first pitch. That is not the standard we expect to play at each time we step on the field. We will get better.”
