East Jessamine shuts out FHS

By LINDA YOUNKIN State Journal Sports Writer Published:

Too many fly balls and missed opportunities cost Frankfort High's baseball team Thursday afternoon.

The Panthers lost to East Jessamine 6-0 at Capitol View Park.

"We had way too many F 7's and F 8's," FHS coach Joe Peach said, referring to fly balls. "I don't know if hitting six home runs last week had something to do with that or if it was being off six days, but we didn't hit like we did before the rain break.

"We don't have anywhere to hit inside," he added, "and we only hit one day before today."

FHS hadn't played since losing at Franklin County last Friday.

Frankfort threatened in the second inning Thursday. Myron Moore hit a one-out single, and Clinton Hall followed with a double. Moore fell trying to stop at third base and ended up caught in a rundown. He was eventually tagged out for the second out, but Hall went to third on a throwing error.

A grounder to short ended the inning with no runs being scored.

East Jessamine opened the scoring in the third inning with one run on an infield single by Jason Hamlin, a stolen base, a sacrifice bunt and a sacrifice fly by Keith Mlejnek.
