The Jackets gave up 15 runs off 18 hits to Grove City on Tuesday, allowing the visiting Greyhounds to run away with a 15-5 victory on Mount Vernon’s frigid field.

Unlike Mount Vernon’s season debut, which saw the team win by run rule on the road, the Jackets weren’t able to solve Grove City’s pitching. Senior Austin DeVore allowed just two hits in 3 2/3 innings of work. By the time the Jackets was able to get someone in scoring position, they already trailed, 5-0.
