Jefferson City showed why they are the No. 1 ranked team in Missouri Class 5 on Tuesday at Oley Scott Field, breaking out the home run sticks en route to a runaway, 17-4 win in six innings over Lebanon.

The Jays took an early lead in the first inning, taking advantage of a pair of Lebanon miscues to take a 2-0 lead, but the ‘Jackets came right back and scored four times in the bottom of the second inning.

Lebanon got a lead off single from Wyatt Milliken and Dylan Rodden and Dakota Shockley each reached on errors by the Jefferson City infield. Freshman Curtis Mobley came through with an RBI hit, followed by an RBI hit by Keaton Winfrey.

But from there it was all Jefferson City. The ‘Jays pounded four home runs in the game, including a two-run blast by Gaven Strobel in the third as part of a four-run frame, then Grant Wood and Brandon Williams each blasted two-run homes run as part of a five-run fourth.

Jefferson City continued to pour it on with two runs in the fifth and Kade Franks homered as part of a four-run sixth inning.
