VALLEY CITY, N.D.-- Leading 3-2 in the top of the fourth, the Jimmie baseball team scored nine unanswered runs over the next four innings in a 12-2 win over Valley City State (N.D.) University Saturday afternoon.
The Vikings got two runs back in the bottom of the second on a fielder's choice and a pop out in foul territory to cut UJ's lead to a run.
The floodgates opened in the top of the sixth as the Jimmies scored four times on just two hits, but were helped out by five Viking errors.
UJ tacked on two runs for good measure in the top of the seventh as Saskai scored on an error and Kaleb Binstock (JR/Grand Forks, ND) came home on a wild pitch.
Yackley, Turin, Roundy, and Sasaki all had two-hit games for the Jimmies. Kody Lane had two of VCSU's six hits in the game.
Eli Fultz (1-0) earned the win, tossing three innings of two-hit relief. He walked one and struck out two. Cole Torgerson (SO/Billings, MT) started for UJ and worked the first three innings, striking out six and allowing two runs on two hits. Joe Spradlin (JR/Helena, MT) pitched two scoreless innings and Saige Tyndall (SR/Bothell, WA) struck out two batters in a scoreless ninth inning.
Jamestown will host Mayville State (N.D.) on October 2 in a nine-inning game scheduled for 6 p.m.
