Thursday night’s non-conference high school baseball game between Greene County and Bondurant-Farrar was shortened to 5-1/2 innings by lightning. The host Blue Jays won 4-2 to hand Greene County its sixth loss in the last eight games. Coach Mark Sawhill’s Rams fell to 5-9 on the season and they are off until Monday when they’ll play Roland-Story in Story City.

Greene County led 1-0 after three innings at Bondurant, but the Blue Jays tied the game at 1-1 in the fourth. The Rams went ahead in the fifth by a 2-1 score, but B-F scored three times in the bottom of the frame. Both teams had seven hits. The home team was charged with three errors and the Rams had two.

Dylan Fouch pitched all five innings and took the loss. Three of the runs scored off him were earned. Fouch had two strikeouts, no walks, and hit one batter with a pitch.

All seven hits for the Rams were singles. Tom Gannon and Chase Stoline each had two hits and Stoline drove in a run. Ben Bravard, Nick Breon, and Logan Lansman also had base hits.
