Jets rally fordistrict crown
SHERIDAN — Sheridan used a big sixth inning to rally past Gillette 9-7 to claim the district title and the No. 1 seed in the upcoming State B Tournament.
The Jets trailed 6-4 entering the bottom of the sixth inning. Sheridan took advantage of some errant pitches — three hit batsmen and a wild pitch — to put up a crooked number.
Cody Kilpatrick led the offensive charge for the Jets with two hits and four RBIs. Luke Keller also had a couple runs batted in, and Caden Steele recorded two hits and an RBI.
Keller got the start and lasted 4 1/3 innings, allowing five earned runs on eight hits with three strikeouts and four walks. Rich Hall tossed the final 2 2/3 innings, surrendering one earned run on four hits.
Sheridan battles Laramie Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. at Thorne-Rider Stadium in the opening round of the state tourney.
