The Short Story: Johns Hopkins turned a 4-2 deficit into a 7-4 lead with two runs in the eighth and three in the ninth Tuesday at Gettysburg, but the Blue Jays were unable to hold on to their three-run lead and ultimately tied the Bullets in a game that was called after 12 innings due to darkness. Conor Reynolds led the Blue Jays’ offensive attack, recording four of the squad’s 18 hits. Carter Burns, normally a starter, came on in relief and allowed just one hit over four scoreless innings to help Hopkins avoid a loss for the 10th straight game.
