(BRANDON HANSEN/Chewelah Independent)
Jeanneret notches two hits, strikes out six in loss…
Chewelah couldn’t get the bats going in a 8-1 loss to the North Idaho Lakers 17U squad on Wednesday evening. With rain clouds storming, the Lakers used late innings to pull away from the 49ers in the loss.
North Idaho added two runs in the top of the third and two more in the top of the sixth. Chewelah would answer back in the bottom of the sixth as Zach Bowman drove in Jake Jeanneret for the 49ers lone score of the game.
On the mound, Jake Jeanneret went five innings and struck out six, giving up just two earned runs and three hits while Sam Triplett finished out the game and struck out four.
Jeanneret also had two hits in the game. Bowen Middlesworth, James Macrae, Jake George and Clayton Jeanneret each had hits as well. George’s hit was a double.
Chewelah plays at Riverside today and then will host Rogers on Tuesday at 6 p.m.
