MOUNT VERNON — The Mount Vernon Yellow Jackets (7-6) needed their best effort when the undefeated Olentangy Orange Pioneers (11-0) came into town on Wednesday. What the Jackets got instead was a series of fielding blunders and a lack of offense.

Despite a five-strikeout effort from starter Nick Hoar, who only gave up three earned runs, the Jackets were defeated by the Pioneers, 7-1, in their Ohio Capital Conference baseball matchup.

Hoar’s biggest trouble came in the top of the first inning, when Pioneer catcher Alec McCurry singled and reached second on a passed ball. An RBI single by shortstop Paul Trich gave Orange a 1-0 lead. After Hoar yielded a walk to Orange first baseman Brady Harris, Orange loaded the bases on an error.

What followed was one of the most unusual double plays all season.
