  • Leadoff hitter Zach Jacobs hit a two-run single in the bottom of the ninth to push the Dodge City Athletics to its second win in as many games over the Owasso (Okla.) Angels.
    Jacobs was able to deliver the hit off Michael Newby, who was one out from throwing a complete game victory over the Athletics before Jacobs' hit.
    The Athletics trailed 3-2 going into the bottom of the ninth, but were able to load the bases with no one out. Kyle Young opened up the frame with a broken-bat single, with Andrew Bynum and Cole Davis following up with singles of their own.
    Newby told the coaches he was fine and that he was going to stay in the game and induced an infield fly and a strikeout before Jacobs hit a single through the infield into centerfield. Young scored and Bynum was also sent. The throw to home plate arrived late to give the Athletics the victory over the Angels.
    Owasso scored two runs in the top of the first inning on a sacrifice fly by Eckersley Villasmil and a RBI single by Wade Williams.
    Dodge City was able to tie the game with single runs in the second and third innings. Ben Gann recorded a RBI on a groundout for one run and Aaron Blair tied the game with a RBI fielders' choice in the third.
    The Angels scored again in the top of the eighth on a RBI single by Mason Mantle to set up the final stages for the Dodge City comeback. Reliever T.J. Schrader was the winning pitcher for the Athletics, who will battle the Liberal BeeJays in their first Jayhawk League showdown of the season tonight at Cavalier Field.
    Newby gave up nine hits and one walk while striking out 10 in 8 2/3 innings of work for the Angels.
    The first pitch for tonight's game is scheduled to start at 7 p.m.
