WARNER– An early 1-run lead disappeared in the top of the third inning when the Haskell Haymakers posted 4 runs and never looked back.

Jace Jackson scored on a passed ball in the bottom of the opening after getting on with an opening single to center. Jackson went 3-for-4 for the day posting two singles and a double accounting for one RBI for Warner.

Unfortunately, that opening run was all the Eagles could muster until the bottom of the fifth inning, while Haskell scored 9 over that span.

The trouble began in the top of the third inning with two outs. Colton Swimmer opened the inning walking Elias Gonzalez before forcing a ground out and a pop fly for the second out of the inning.  Glover singled to left before an infield dribbler by Ryker Porter was mishandled by catcher Austin Spradlin allowing Gonzalez to score the opening run for the Haymakers.

Jaxon Drain doubled scoring a run and walks to Colby Collins and Brady Neal another two to give the Haymakers a 4-1 lead after three innings.

In the fourth, with Kaleb Spradlin pitching, in relief of Swimmer, Spradlin allowed three free passes and two singles by Dylan Ozinga and Drain and Haskell led 6-1.

In the following Haymakers at bat, a walk, an error, and two singles gave another 3 runs to take the lead to 8.

Warner avoided the run rule (8 run lead after 5 innings) in the bottom of the fifth when a Jackson single scored Jaxon Cash who was hit by a pitch to open the inning.

Both teams traded scores in the final two innings with the Eagles getting 2 in the bottom of the seventh, but it was too little too late and Warner’s losing streak went to three games with the 11-5 Haymakers victory.

Warner will get back in action Thursday when they travel to 4A Hilldale, who are undefeated at 4-0, and Haskell (3-1) stays on the road at Liberty (3-3).
