WHEAT RIDGE – D’Evelyn baseball dropped their first game of the season fall 7-5 to Wheat Ridge Saturday at Wheat Ridge High School.

 

Wheat Ridge scored a run in each of the first two innings and then scored two in each of the third and fourth innings to take a 6-0 lead.

However, the Jaguars would answer with five runs in the fifth inning cutting Wheat Ridge’s lead to 6-5. But solid late game pitching kept D’Evelyn off the scoreboard in the final innings and the Farmers would add a marquee win to their resume.

Wheat Ridge senior Danny Allen went 2-for-3 with a double and scored a run.

D’Evelyn senior Luke Stratman went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple and added a run.

The Farmers (3-6, 2-3) will play at Green Mountain Saturday at 11 a.m.

D’Evelyn (9-1, 4-1) looks to shake off their first loss and will play at Alameda Saturday at 11 a.m.
