It has been a tough start to the season for Perry’s baseball team as the Bluejays (0-4) dropped their fourth straight.
Last night in Dallas Center, the Bluejays’ bats were unable to counter the Mustangs’ (1-3) offense. Dallas Center-Grimes earned the victory in a 9-3 contest.
The two teams came into the contest winless with the Bluejays hoping to capture that elusive first win.

On May 24, the Bluejays dug themselves into the hole quickly as the Warriors got on the scoreboard early with two runs in the first inning.
The road team added another two runs in the second off Perry’s starting pitcher Alexis Garrido.
Garrido pitched five innings allowing five runs - four earned - off 10 hits with two walks and striking out three.
In the bottom of the fourth the home team erased a the shutout with a lone run when Adan Medina crossed the plate.
Medina relieved Garrido in the top of the sixth. He word two full innings giving up zero runs on three hits with three strikeouts and no walks.
As a team the Bluejays recorded three hits off 23 at bats. Kaleb Olejniczak, Medina and Brandon Kenyon were credited with the hits.
