SHERIDAN — The Sheridan Jets took their first weekend sweep of the still-young season Saturday in Casper. Sheridan again hit the ball well as they beat the Casper Roughnecks by scores of 13-6 and 13-2. Tyler Stauffer and James Timberlake pitched wins for the Jets.
“It was nice to go on the road and get a couple victories,” head coach Ryan Murner said. “It took us a while in game one to get started offensively. “We were chasing a lot of pitches out of the hitting zone and getting ourselves out. Our pitching kept us in the game until we could get things going at the plate. Once we took better approaches at the plate, we created some offense and forced them to make pitches.”
Sheridan will play a make-up doubleheader against the Billings Blue Jays Thursday at 5 and 7 p.m. at Thorne-Rider Stadium.
