The Short Story: The Johns Hopkins baseball team saw its six-game winning streak come to an end Friday as the Blue Jays fell 13-9 to Skidmore. All but three of the game’s runs came in the first five innings and the Thoroughbreds led by as many as six runs at one point.
How it Happened:
- Skidmore took advantage of a pair of JHU errors and scored the first two runs of the game in the top of the first.
- The Jays responded with a run in the bottom of the first and took their only lead of the game, 4-3, in the bottom of the second.
- The Thoroughbreds scored four in the third and three more in the fourth to lead 10-4 midway through the fourth inning.
- Hopkins’ best offensive inning game in the home half of the fourth when the Blue Jays scored four runs on four hits to cut their deficit to two, 10-8.
- Skidmore pitcher Andrew Aikens entered the game in the fourth inning and the Blue Jays struggled to solve the righthander, scoring just one more run the rest of the game.
- Wyatt Lam pitched the final five innings for JHU and had the best outing of his young career. The freshman struck out five and gave up two hits and no walks.
