Wanamingo Drops Fourth Straight Game
The Wanamingo Jacks opened their season with a win at Waseca but since then have fallen on hard times. The Jacks have dropped four straight games since their opening victory.
Sunday was their fourth consecutive loss. The Pine Island Pioneers edged Wanamingo 4-3 in Pine Island. The Jacks had a 2-0 lead after two innings. The Pioneers tied the game with two runs in the top of the 4th then added two runs in the top of the 8th before Wanamingo came up just short of sending the game to extra innings with 1 run in the bottom of the 9th.
Wanamingo has not had their field cleared for games to be played there. It is owned by the Kenyon-Wanamingo school district.
A loyal Jacks fan told us they feel the lack of a home field is having it's effect on the Wanamingo team.
In the game Sunday Pine Island had 11 hits, the Jacks 5 hits in the game.
Sam Roosen went the distance for Wanamingo allowing 4 runs on 11 hits with 4 strikeouts, 1 walk. The box score on the Minnesota Baseball Association website did not include any individual Pine Island statistics.
