KENMORE - It was a heartbreaking ending to the season for Jamestown as the ninth-ranked Red Raiders (6-14) were unable to preserve a lead, falling to No. 8 Kenmore West, 4-3 in eight innings in a Section 6 Class AA Prequarterfinal baseball game.
Jamestown took advantage of some early opportunities and held a 3-0 lead after the top of the fifth, but Kenmore West trimmed that advantage to 3-1 after six innings were completed.
In the seventh, it appeared that the Red Raiders scored two more runs. After Jacob Kindberg singled and moved to second. Jake Sisson ripped a triple, but the toss from the outfield was overthrown, so Sisson trotted home, following Kindberg.
However, Ken-West appealed to first and it was ruled Sisson missed the base on his way around the infield, which meant he was called out, nullifying both runs.
Ken-West then managed to tie the game in the bottom of the seventh, pushing the game into extra innings where Tommy Ryan connected for a triple that turned out to be the game-winner in the bottom of the eighth.
The losing pitcher was Bram Johnson, who came in to relieve starter Adam Westley in the seventh. Johnson gave up five hits, two runs and had two strikeouts while Westley surrendered nine hits, two runs, three walks and five strikeouts.
