Jasper Reds to Host the Owensboro Hardballers in Doubleheader this Saturday

Jasper (NNDC) – The Jasper Reds will play host to Owensboro this upcoming Saturday at Ruxer Field in Jasper after improving their record to an impressive 9-0 on the season following 2 shutouts this past weekend.    The Western KY Giants visited Jasper on Saturday for a twin bill and the Reds took care of business with a sweep.

In game one, Jasper’s Bo Daves continued his dominance on the mound while giving up only 2 hits on the day and picking up his 4th win of the season.    Those 2 hits came in the 7th as Daves took a no hitter into the top of the inning before giving up a single and a double.   Daves now has 32 strike outs in 22 innings of work on the season and leads the team with a 0.00 ERA.    The Reds win game 1 by the score of 3-0.

In game 2, Reds lefty Kris Weisheit earned his 2nd win of the season as he pitched a 4 hitter and held Western Kentucky scoreless allowing Jasper to pick up a 1-0 win.    Devan Franz had a pair of singles in the low scoring contest and the lone run for Jasper came in the 7th without the benefit of a hit.   Franz and Jacob Lents helped preserve the shutout with sensational catches and allowed Jasper to pick up it’s 5th shutout of the season.

Jasper will return to action this upcoming Saturday at Ruxer Field with first pitch set for 2pm against the Owensboro Hardballers.   We encourage you to support the Jasper Reds in this their 125th season.
