The Bluejay baseball team had their overall record dip to 4-7 after Tuesday’s 10-4 non-conference loss to visiting Greene County, which came one day after Perry fell to host Carlisle, 10-3, in Raccoon River Conference play.
Tuesday’s home loss came to a Greene County team (2-5) that turned to freshman Austin Delp on the mound.
Delp survived Janier Puente’s two-run line-drive home run to center field in the first inning to toss a complete game for the Rams, yielding four runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out eight.
He received plenty of help, as Reid Lamoureux was 4-for-5 with three RBIs while Tyler Beger was 3-for-5 with two RBIs while Wade Adcock plated two runs with a 2-for-4 effort. Delp aided his own cause with three hits, with Chase Stoline scoring three times for the Rams.
Kyle Nevitt had a single and a double for the Bluejays, who saw their 2-0 lead turn into a 3-2 deficit after three frames.
Greene County held a 5-4 lead after five frames but erupted in the top of the sixth for five runs on four hits and two costly Perry errors.
Alex Long went five innings on the hill for Perry, with Alexis Garrido tossing the final two frames.
The “big inning” doomed Perry (4-7, 2-2) Monday as well, as Carlisle (5-3, 2-1) plated five runs in both the second and sixth stanzas to fuel a 10-3 conference victory.
Payton Stephens drove in four runs and had a home run, with five other Wildcat players recording RBIs in the win. Both teams finished with eight hits.
Additional Perry statistical information was not available.
Perry hosts Bondurant-Farrar tonight before traveling to Slater to face Ballard Thursday. Perry’s Saturday schedule has seen a slight change, as the Bluejays will face host Atlantic at 10 a.m. before facing Treynor immediately afterward.
