Jackrabbits halted in home stand opener

July 15, 2016

KOKOMO, IND. – Third baseman Ryan Hutchinson of Illinois State University, second baseman Logan Barnes of Indiana University – Southeast and shortstop Connor Dall of Butler University all compiled multiple-hit contests Friday, July 15, but it wasn’t enough to push the home squad past the Danville Dans.

The Dans gained a 3-1 victory in the resumption of the 2016 Prospect League second half schedule. A two-run first inning, fueled by three hits, including a double, and an RBI hit by pitch in the eighth gave the visitors all they needed and helped them evade three double plays by Kokomo. Meanwhile, left on base numbers for the Gold and Brown (6-4, 21-19) were key as they stranded nine. Dall, the Coca-Cola Player of the Game, drove in the lone score for the Jackrabbits in the home half of the second.

Kokomo continues their current six-game home set Saturday, July 16, against Danville. First pitch is 7:05 p.m. at Kokomo Municipal Stadium.
