The Thomas Jefferson baseball team shook the South Puget Sound League North Division standings on Tuesday with a 6-5 victory against sixth-ranked Kentlake.
Pitchers Jordan Beers and Andrew Jones limited Kentlake’s potent offense to just six hits in the win. Beers went five innings to pick up the win while Jones delivered two scoreless innings of relief to earn the save.
It was the first league loss of the season for Kentlake (8-1 in league, 12-2 overall), which bounced back Wednesday afternoon to beat Decatur, 5-4. The loss ended Kentlake’s nine-game winning streak.
Jerett Hardy and Spencer LeCompete each collected a pair of hits for the Raiders (6-3, 10-5), who were unable to keep the momentum going on Wednesday in a 4-2 loss to Kentridge.
With the split of the two games, the Raiders still remain among the league’s front runners for one of the four playoff berths.
The third-place Raiders have a two-game cushion over fourth-place Kentridge (4-4, 5-7) and Federal Way (4-4, 4-8).
