Blue Jays Beat Blevins, Drop Tough Game to Hampton
Nevada- The Blue Jays had a pair of games this past week, as they would drop a game to Hampton on Monday and beat Blevins on Tuesday. The Blue Jays are gearing up for the conference tourney, which begins on Monday. 

Nevada 2                Hampton 7

Tristan Griffith toed the slab for the Blue Jays against Hampton and pitched a great game, piling up 9 strikeouts. A few mistakes let the game get out of hand for the Jays as they dropped a non-conference game 7-2. Colin Nelson had a hit for Nevada and Travis McClure added a hit as well. The Blue Jays swiped 4 bags as a team (Brogan Rhodes, Braylon Srebalus, Colin Nelson, Wesley Almand).

Nevada traveled to Blevins and run-ruled the Hornets in a conference game. Brogan Rhodes struck out 5 batters on the mound, Wesley Almand struck out 4 and Nathan Pipkins struck out the side in his 1 inning of relief. At the plate the Jays were led by Tristan Griffith, as he had 4 hits and drove in 4 runs. Wesley Almand had a 2-hit game and drove in 2 runs, as Travis McClure had 4 RBI and a hit, Justin Myrick had 3 RBI and a hit, and Brogan Rhodes had 1 hit and 3 RBI for the Jays at the plate. 

The Bracket is set for the Jays, as they play Monday night against Mineral Springs in Mineral Springs in the conference tournament.
