The pitching of Lakeville South and Bloomington Jefferson quieted Rosemount’s bats last week.

The Irish, after scoring 30 runs in their first four games, were limited to four runs in a pair of home losses last week. They were held to three hits by Lakeville South in last Tuesday’s 4-2 loss, and couldn’t string together a rally despite eight hits in Monday’s 3-2 setback against Jefferson.

Both of Monday’s runs came home in the first inning on Luke Dahl’s two-run homer. That tied the score at 2-2 after the Jaguars used three walks and three hits to plate two runs against starter Ben Smith in the top of the first.

Smith, who won his first two starts, had to leave after throwing 99 pitches, walking five and fanning six in four innings. Alex Duffy followed with three innings of shutout relief.

Jefferson scored what turned out to be the winning run on a walk and an error in the top of the fourth.

Dahl and Jordan Turner each had two hits for Rosemount. Haydn Lanoue singled and scored on Dahl’s first-inning blast.

Dahl started on the mound last Tuesday against South and allowed four runs (two earned) while striking out eight over five innings. The Cougars took the lead with three runs courtesy of two walks and two hits in the top of the third.

Turner started the game with a leadoff triple and scored to give Rosemount its only lead. Dahl and Smith supplied the only other hits.

The Irish (3-3) traveled to Bloomington Kennedy and Lakeville North earlier this week. They are back home this afternoon against Apple Valley.
