Eagles close out season

MILANO—The Milano Eagles baseball finished a disappointing season with a 20-1 loss to Thrall on Friday night. The team ends the year with a 3-11 record.

“We played hard all year and as the season went along we got better in most parts of the game,” Eagles head coach Craig Jentsch said. “Finishing 3 and 11 in district was disappointing but we have only one senior and we will get all of our pitching back and hope to build on this season and get better for next year. Very proud of our team and the way they represented our community.”

That one senior is Toby Sanders, who scored Milano’s lone run on Friday with a solo home run in the bottom of the third inning.

David Jentsch took the loss on the mound with three innings worth of work. Chance Pack pitched the last two innings.

Pack caught for Jentsch and Jentsch caught for Pack.
