Box Score

The Jupiter Warriors are no strangers to close ball games. Nearly every clash on the diamond has been a close battle, and that was once again the case on Wednesday afternoon against the tough George Jenkins Eagles. After falling behind in the fifth, the Warriors immediately answered back with a big inning that led the way to a gritty 5-1 victory.

Jupiter (7-3) rallied for four runs in the bottom of the fifth for the comeback win. Coming off the heels of an extra-inning loss to the West Broward Bobcats, the result was a nice turnaround at the right moment for the Warriors.

“Yeah, we truly excel in the tight close games,” Jupiter Manager Kyle Young said. “When it’s go time they know what needs to be done.”

The first four batters all reached base to start the fifth and immediately amp up the pressure. Senior Gavin Marchese got it started when he drilled a 3-1 offering to left field for a lead-off double, and Jake Finnegan then reached on an error off a sacrifice bunt that allowed Marchese to come around and tie the game. Andrew Todd followed by lining an RBI single to right that gave Jupiter the lead, and Colton Schwarz put runners on the corners with a base hit to center.

The Warriors kept it going to extend the lead. Gabe Graulau lifted a sac-fly to center that drove home Todd, and Schwarz soon followed off a wild pitch.

Jupiter added one last insurance run an inning later. Mason Barela was hit by a pitch and then made his way around the bases by advancing into scoring position on a wild pitch and then rounding third to score thanks to an RBI single from Finnegan.

“I obviously would like more consistency in all seven innings but it is still the first half of the season with lots of baseball left. I feel we have yet to play our baseball,” Young said.

After being staked with his first lead, Warriors starter Ethan Trivison did the rest of his part by going the distance on the mound. The sophomore left-hander allowed just one earned run on three hits and a walk to pick up his first win of the season. Trivison struck out five.

Marchese was the only Warrior to collect multiple hits, going 2-for-3. But nearly every offensive starter managed to reach base to contribute to the victory.
