Washington’s three-day baseball tour through the Four Rivers Conference began Monday with a 4-2 loss to Sullivan at Dutzow.

The Blue Jays (12-10) end the regular season with games Tuesday at home against St. Clair and Wednesday against Union at East Central College at 4:30 p.m.

Washington is seeded fourth for the Class 5 District 8 Tournament at Holt. The Blue Jays meet fifth-seeded Hannibal Saturday at 1 p.m.

Sullivan (16-7) is the top seed and the host for the Class 4 District 9 Tournament. The Eagles play in the semifinals against either St. James or Osage Monday at 4 p.m.

Joey Lochner pitched the first four innings for Sullivan, the Four Rivers Conference champs. He allowed no runs on three hits with two walks and six strikeouts.

Matt Foster worked the final three frames for the save. He allowed two runs on three hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

“We didn’t hit. It comes down to plate discipline. We had too many swings on bad pitches with hitters counts,” said Washington Head Coach Scott Bray.

Luke Hasenjaeger got the start on the mound for Washington and suffered the loss. In four innings, he allowed two unearned runs on three hits with two walks and two strikeouts.

Jared Walde tossed the final three frames. He allowed two runs, one earned, on five hits with one walk and five strikeouts.

“Hasenjaeger and Walde both threw the ball well,” Bray said. “Our defense was decent. We made a couple of untimely errors when they had runners on base. Only one of their runs was earned.”

JC Beckett led the Eagles’ three-hit attack with three hits and a run.

Adam Weiland, Seth Mesey, Cullen Stockley, Lochner and Foster each finished with one hit.

Pete Coulter collected two of the Blue Jays’ six hits.

Todd Hellmann, Brock Hopkins, Mike Reinhold and Hasenjaeger each had one hit.

Hellmann also walked and scored. Hasenjaeger added one RBI and one run. Hopkins added one RBI. Zach Pointer and Dilan Bollmann both drew a walk.

“We had their lead down to 4-2 and hit into a double play with the bases loaded. We had opportunities,” Bray said. “It’s been like that all year. Hopefully we’ll figure things out in the next couple of games.”
