Chillicothe Withstands Renegades Rally, Wins in Ten

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - After a series of recent pitching duels, the explosion of runs from both sides Sunday was hardly predictable. The two sides exchanged blows early and often, playing to an 8-8 tie before the Mudcats emphatically pulled away with a six-run top of the tenth to win it. The extra-inning affair was the first one the Renegades (12-8) have had to participate in all season, which is surprising considering how close the club is to the All-Star break. Fans didn’t have to wait long to see scoring, as Chillicothe (9-12) grabbed a pair in the top of the second, followed by an RBI triple by Logan Hudson in the bottom half. The Mudcats then did the majority of the scoring throughout th

Renegades Walk Off Bombers in Series Finale

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Jefferson City Renegades entered Saturday’s contest versus Sedalia just 1-4 for the season, and after the Bombers broke a 1-1 tie with a pair of runs in the seventh, it looked as though Sedalia would walk away with five wins in six tries against the Renegades. That is, until the resurgent Renegades responded – walking off the Bombers with a two-run single in the ninth. Jefferson City (11-8) had allowed Sedalia (15-6) to get the better of the run differential by a wide margin through the first five games between the two this season, and that was due in large part to the control issues from the pitching staff. That wasn’t the case tonight however, as starter Matthew W

Outlaws Outlast Renegades in Low-Scoring Duel

JOPLIN, Mo. - Earlier today, Kaden Helsel was named to the All-State team as a First Team selection. Tonight, the Jefferson City Renegade and future Drury Panther turned in a fantastic six-inning, one run start against experienced collegiate hitters. But in the bottom of the seventh with the bases loaded, the Joplin Outlaws were able to break the game open on a Zach Eihlen double, the first extra base hit of the game. The Outlaws would go on to secure their fifth victory of the season, 5-1. The game got under way a little later than expected as the umpire crew was delayed in their arrival to the ballpark, but when they did, they were met with a flurry of outs. Between Helsel and Outlaws star

Renegades Rally, Fall Just Short Against Mustangs

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - It didn’t take very long after first pitch to realize that this particular game would be one to remember at Ernie Vivion Field. The Mustangs (11-6) struck first and by the look of it, it appeared as though they would cruise to victory. They sent eight hitters to the plate and scored four of them, due in part to doubles from Jordan Maxson and Daniel Covert. The Renegades (9-8) were finally able to answer a 5-0 deficit in the bottom of the fifth with a two-run home run by Marquise Doherty that landed on the big red shed in left-center field. St. Joe responded with two runs itself in the top of the sixth, and after the Renegades scratched across Jake Slunder on a Logan Hud

Bombers Take Care of Renegades to Win Sixth in a Row

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Renegades (9-7) entered Saturday’s game having erased old wounds that involved losing a two-run lead to Queen City in the ninth and getting swept by Chillicothe. Those wounds were re-opened however as the Sedalia Bombers (12-4) tagged the Renegades for double digits, winning 10-6. The Renegades pitching staff struggled in efficiency, as the Bombers forced 50 hitters to the plate on the night. Starter Matthew Wade never was able to find his groove, pitching to six hitters in the second, nine in the third, and five in the fourth before he was pulled. Wade gave up six runs on the evening, although only four of those were earned. Leading the way for the Bombers offensiv

Renegades Rob Generals Twice

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - After a week that saw the Jefferson City Renegades drop two against the Chillicothe Mudcats, a team that entered the series with just three wins to its name, there probably weren’t many expectations as the Renegades turned around for a Friday night double header against the first place Ozark Generals. The Renegades however, looked rejuvenated as they took both games from Ozark – making a statement in the MINK South. GAME 1 The Renegades (9-6) struggled against the strong Chillicothe starters earlier in the week, so a matchup against Generals (7-6) starter Gyeongju Kim, who hadn’t yet surrendered a run in twelve innings pitched, was far from ideal. It didn’t matter, as t

Bats Go Quiet for Renegades as Mudcats Earn Double-Digit Win

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Trae Brownell took a no hitter into the seventh last night against the Renegades, as his Mudcats were able to take the first game of the series. Tonight was no different. Manager Caleb Bounds trotted out Tanner Marshall, who promptly shut down the Jefferson City Renegades (7-6) again, earning an 11-1 win. Although Marshall didn’t carry a no hitter through a good portion of the game like his Chillicothe Mudcats (5-9) counterpart, he was effective in pounding the strike zone and working out of trouble – even working out of a bases loaded situation with nobody out in the fourth. The only run he did give up back in the second, when the Renegades were able to string together

Mudcats Prevail in Pitcher Duel

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Chillicothe Mudcats had a long bus ride to Ernie Vivion Field today to take on the Renegades. It didn’t bother starter Trae Brownell one bit. The righty pitched perfectly through the order his first time through, and even took a no hitter into the seventh before Logan Hudson finally broke it up. Ultimately, that was enough to put the Mudcats (4-9) over the top as they prevailed 5-2 over the Renegades (7-5) in a wind sprint of a ball game. Renegades starter Kaden Helsel had the juice to match Brownell pitch-for-pitch in the early going, striking out five in the first three innings and allowing just one base runner in that time frame. The Mudcats eventually broke thro

Renegades Crush Queen City in Walk-Off Win

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Renegades didn’t waste any time in their first game back from a lengthy road trip, sending eight hitters to the plate and brining in five runs to put the Queen City Crush in an immediate hole. After the first, an inning that saw another Jady Reese home run, it was hard to see the Crush making a comeback – but that’s exactly what they did. After a three-run home run by Jackson Berney and five total runs in the fifth, the Crush (4-5) were in business, proceeding to score a run in the sixth, seventh, and then three in the ninth to finally pull in front. It was short-lived however, as the feisty Renegades (7-4) refused to go down, scoring three of their own to walk off

Walks Hurt Renegades as Bombers Snap Win Streak

SEDALIA, Mo. - It took just two batters for the Sedalia Bombers to wash the sour taste from Friday out of their mouth. That feeling left as soon as Ashanti Wheatley’s home run landed over the centerfield fence at Liberty Park Stadium. However, it actually wasn’t so much the Bombers’ offense that hurt the Renegades, but rather the unforced errors on the mound. When it was all said and done, the Renegades (6-4) walked ten batters and hit an additional six. That number far outweighed the eleven hits given up by the staff, as the Bombers (8-4) defeated Jefferson City for the third time this year, this time by a final of 12-7. The Renegades actually led at two different points in the ball game,

Renegades Bomb Bombers for Fourth Straight

SEDALIA, Mo. - After Matt Westphal sent a three-run home run sailing over the left field fence, it would appear as though the Renegades were headed toward the same disappointing result the last time these two teams got together. The Jefferson City Renegades (6-3) trailed the Sedalia Bombers (6-4) 4-0 after just three innings of play, and as starting pitcher Dalton Erger stated in his postgame interview, “It would have been easy to give up.” The Renegades did anything but, striking for three in the fourth, five in the fifth, and another five in the sixth, coming from behind to take a commanding 13-4 lead. From that point on, Erger didn’t allow a single run as he rode his red-hot offense to a

Renegades Route Outlaws for Third Straight Win

JOPLIN, Mo. - So far this week, pitching has been the name of the game for the Renegades, as they were able to edge out two low scoring affairs against Springfield. Tonight in Joplin was a different story. The Jefferson City Renegades (5-3) came alive at the plate, soundly defeating the Joplin Outlaws (0-6) by a score of 10-1. The pitching staff didn’t let up either, as the Renegades have held their opponent to just a single run in each of the last two contests, and five runs total over the past three games. After a solid outing from starter Michael McElmeel, it was Christian Watson who shut the door tonight, pitching three scoreless frames to earn the win. As opposed to last night’s 2-1 win

Record Setting Day Puts Renegades Above .500

Yesterday, Alex Loosbrock turned in probably the best start of the season thus far of any Renegades starter. Tonight, Kaden Helsel upped the ante emphatically as the Jefferson City Renegades (3-2) took care of the Springfield Redbirds (3-5) in the ninth for a 2-1 victory. Helsel made Renegades history tonight, punching out a record twelve Redbirds in just six innings of work. However, he wasn’t the only one to make history as former Renegade Jacob Voss became the first player in organization history to be drafted – going to the Los Angeles Angels in the 27th round. Even with the fantastic start from Hensel, the Renegades red-hot bats finally cooled off with the sunset, as he left the game tr

Loosbrock Shines in Renegades Win

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Alex Loosbrock’s first appearance in a Renegades uniform didn’t go as expected. In the first game of the year against Sedalia, Loosbrock pitched just one inning, giving up three runs. However, Loosbrock's start tonight against the Springfield Redbirds (3-3) was a different story. In probably the best start from a Renegades pitcher thus far, Loosbrock went five innings, allowing just one earned run on three hits, while striking out nine Redbird hitters to earn his first win of the year – the most strikeouts by a starter this season. The Renegades (3-3, 2-3 2nd MINK South) got down early, as it took Loosbrock a few hitters to settle down. The Redbirds sent seven hitters t

Renegades Take Series with A's, Can't Complete Sweep

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - The Jefferson City Renegades (2-2) had a jump on most of the MINK League this season, playing two games before the first weekend. However, after a home-and-home against Sedalia and a Friday night contest against the Clarinda A's (0-2), the Renegades were still without their first home run – that is, before the 2017 MINK League leader in that category sent one over the left field fence at Vivion Field. Mike Million didn’t have the average he’s used to seeing next to his name through the first few games, but that changed in a big way as he willed the Renegades to a 13-11 victory. On the night, Million was 3-4 with a walk, driving in three runs, scoring three himself, and

Renegades Tally 9 Runs in First Win of Season

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. - Two nights ago, catcher Kade Franks was all set to take in his first ever game in a Renegades uniform watching veteran Jady Reese work behind the plate – until about five minutes before first pitch. After a bullpen accident in which Reese ended up needing a few stitches, all of the sudden the Renegades needed Franks on opening night, who stepped up seamlessly in front of a packed house at Vivion Field. Tonight, Franks was there to answer the bell, reaching base three times and breaking the game open with his bases clearing double in the fourth. The Renegades (1-2) rode their bats all the way to victory, topping the Clarinda A’s (0-1) 9-5 for their first win of the seaso
