Never look a gift horse in the mouth. The same might be said of a Tiger. The Tigers of Holy Cross, that is.

In a district game between Jesuit and its old rival on Tuesday evening, April 1 at John Ryan Stadium, the Tigers committed three fatal errors in the bottom of the fourth inning that allowed the Jays to score two runs. A couple of runs were all the Jays needed to defeat the Tigers, 2-1.

Jesuit’s Brandon Sequeira pitched seven innings, giving up five hits and striking out eight Tigers. The senior pitcher pushed his record on the mound to 6-0.

It was Jesuit’s second district win in as many days. On Monday, March 31, the Jays shut out Brother Martin, 1-0. Returning to the Ryan on Tuesday to play the Tigers, Jesuit looked just a bit off their game.

The Jays could only muster four hits against the Tigers and two of those came off the bat of, who else, Scott Crabtree, the junior left fielder who socked a double and a single and whose current at-bat average is practically off the charts. The other two hits were a double by junior Dan Edmund (1B) and a single by Sequeira.

Jesuit’s two runs crossed the plate when the Tigers attempted to pick off Crabtree on third base and the ball sailed into left field. Moments later, Edmund scored the Jays’ second run off a similar error.

The Blue Jays, currently 18-3 overall and 3-0 in district, play St. Augustine on Friday, April 4. The district game takes place at Wesley Barrow Stadium at 4 p.m. (*moved up from 6 p.m.).
