Thursday, hear from the players, coaches how they smothered the Rebels.
Junior leftie Alex Jasiek can be rough and tumble on a ice hockey surface, and smooth as silk on a pitching mound. Jasiek scattered 4 hits over 6 frames, and Jake Wood scored 3 times as Burroughs beat visiting Priory Tuesday, 3-0 in a conference game. Coach Andy Katzman is relieved to have Jasieck in uniform. The team made the trip to Florida last month while he was away playing junior hockey for six road games. Jasieck is serious about hockey, and hopes to play on the collegiate level. Thursday, Jasiek talks about what was working for him and catcher Justin Moon talks about how much he enjoyed catching this game. Also hear from coaches Katzman and Priory's Gregg Muensch.

Jason Sandler pitched a complete game in the 6-2 Ram victory Wednesday at John Burroughs.
Ladue pitcher Jason Sandler lost his shutout but not the game Wednesday afternoon at John Burroughs. The senior southpaw blanked the Bombers through 6 2/3 innings. Ladue, which had played brilliant defense, had a couple of miscues which resulted in a pair of Bomber runs. It was too little and too late as Ladue snapped a two-game losing streak in the 6-2 victory. "Sure, I would have liked the shutout," Sandler said. "But I am definitely satisfied with the win." The Rams scored a pair of runs in the second inning on a bases loaded walk and an infield hit. They added three in the third as Rob Ewald, who had drawn the bases loaded walk in the second, found himself at the plate in a similar situation. This time there was no chance of a walk as …

Burroughs doubles up rival MICDS for 8-4 win. Rematch Sunday at Busch.
When Jackson Myer hit a slow roller for an out in the home half of the seventh for MICDS at John Burroughs Monday, that brought back memories for the Burroughs side. Myer cranked a walk-off homer at Shaw Park last May to defeat their arch rivals the Bombers for the district crown. Myer has been injured, and playing sparingly this season. “We had some evens to get,” said Bomber second-baseman Nathan Adams who is headed to Yale to play infield next season. “We didn’t forget about that one at all,” he said. Burroughs had a seven run uprising in the 5th and 6th innings to defeat their nemesis the Rams, 8-4. It was sweet revenge, but short lived. Sunday, the duo clash at Busch Stadium at 1 p.m. They have memories of that too. Last year’s game …

Hefler puts down an uprising, and Bombers crush Priory, 8-0.
No disputing the fact, sophomore Alex Jasiek was in command of all his pitches and mowed down seven batters en-route to an 8-0 victory for Burroughs over Priory Wednesday. But the play at the plate in the second inning by Bombers catcher senior Sam Hefler was worth the price of admission. Junior David Nogalski was barreling home for the go-head score in the second inning when he ran into Hefler, literally. Nogalski, who doubles as a running back in football went airborne on the Burroughs catcher. Hefler applied the perfect tag and ended the Rebels uprising. The Bombers parlayed three runs in the fourth; two in the fifth and sixth and won their sixth game of the season. “I like plays like that. I like the contact. It reminded me of the …

Junior Jackson Myer hits a leadoff homer in the bottom of the eighth as the Rams win 2-1 in Class 3 District 5 semifinal at Clayton.
It had been a rough day for MICDS athletic director Don Maurer and his Ram teams. The lacrosse and soccer teams had seen their seasons end with losses. The lacrosse team lost to rival John Burroughs while the soccer team lost in overtime to Villa Duchesne. But the day ended with a bang, a bang that Maurer predicted as Jackson Myer hit a leadoff homer in the bottom of the eighth inning to give the Ram baseball team a thrilling 2-1 victory over John Burroughs Tuesday in the Class 3 District 5 semifinals at Clayton. "Jackson had just made a great play to end the top half of the inning and I predicted that he would end it with a home run," Maurer said. Myer made his AD look like a genius as he pulled a 1-2 pitch over the left center field …

The Bombers defeat Whitfield 8-4 Monday and face MICDS in semifinals Tuesday.
The preliminaries are out of the way and it is time for the main event. John Burroughs and MICDS each won their opening games of the Class 3 District 5 baseball tournament Monday. The Bombers defeated Whitfield 8-4 while MICDS edged 6-4. That sets up the game of the season as the Rams and Bombers play in the semifinals Tuesday at approximately 6 p.m. at Shaw Park in Clayton. "We really want to beat MICDS," John Burroughs outfielder Davie Holmes said. "We have ended their seasons the last two seasons and we would love to do it again." MICDS has had the upper hand this season with a pair of wins over the Bombers but the district game is the most meaningful one with the winner advancing to Wednesday's district title game while the loser sees …

The Bombers use a five-run second inning to defeat the Wildcats 7-3 Wednesday at John Burroughs.
The 2011 regular season was a wild one for the John Burroughs baseball team. It featured an 11-game winning streak but also a five-game losing streak. But it appears as if the Bombers are playing their best when it means the most. Burroughs won for the third straight time Wednesday and this time they did it against one of the best teams in the area. The Bombers scored five runs in the second inning and defeated Westminster Christian 7-3. "We hit a rough patch there for a while but we are having fun again," said John Burroughs center fielder Davey Holmes, who had a pair of hits and three RBI to pace the win Wednesday. "If we are on our game, we can play with anybody and we showed that today." The teams could well match up again in the Class…
