April 23, 2022 D10 Baseball Recaps


RUSSELL, Pa. – Garrett Jensen pitched five solid innings and the top of the lineup scored seven runs to help lead Eisenhower to its first win of the season, 7-3, over visiting Maplewood on Saturday.

The Knights broke the game open with a 3-run fifth inning, then scored two more in the sixth to put the game away.

The top three in the Knights’ order were tough outs all game for the Tigers. All told, Brok English, Cole Chapman, and Camron Jakubczak were 5-8 hitting with all seven runs scored, two RBIs, and drew four walks. In 12 plate appearances, the trio reached base safely 10 times.

Maplewood put runners in scoring position in each of the first four innings, but Jensen was able to get three strikeouts and induce a pop-out to end the threat each time.

“We just got to focus on the batter at the plate, don’t worry about the guys on. It’s the best way to get through,” Jensen said.
