Giants return home off a win in Evanston

The Jackson Giants split a doubleheader with the Evanston Outlaws Tuesday. Evanston’s Gus Allred quieted Jackson bats in the early game but the Giants offense came to life in the nightcap for an exciting 4-run victory.

Allred was all Evanston needed in game one of a doubleheader Tuesday. The Outlaws posted 3 runs in their half of the opening frame and never looked back.

Allred threw a 2-hitter—only Matt Fisher and Bridger Hammond were able to solve the outlaw pitcher who struck out 7 in 5 innings of work.

Kade Foulke (1-4) took the loss for the Giants, giving up 6 earned runs on 7 hits. He walked 4 and struck out 5.

Post 43 rebounded nicely in the late game, jumping on the Outlaws for 3 in the 1st inning. Evanston tied the game briefly at 6-6 in the 4th inning but Jackson added 4 more in the top of the 5th to cruise to an 11-7 win.

Steven Ashurts (3 for 3 with 2 triples), Parker Bleggi (2 for 4, 1 double, 2 RBI), Ayden Gralund (2 for 5, 1 RBI), Matt Fisher (2 for 4), and Austin VanSkike (2 for 3, 1 double, 1 HR, 2 RBI) led the offense.

Ashurts (3-3) pitched well enough to get the win. The big southpaw threw 4 1/3 innings, allowing 3 earned runs on 11 hits. Parker Bleggi notched the save by working 2 2/3 innings of stellar relief.
