Logan baseball tops Harrison 8-0 to advance

Berries will face Lafayette Jeff in semifinal on Memorial Day.

KOKOMO — Neither Harrison nor a 36-minute rain delay could slow down Logansport’s baseball team on Wednesday.

The Berries got a strong pitching performance from Kyle Jordan and broke open a close game with a five-run fifth inning in an 8-0 win over the Raiders in a Class 4A, Sectional 7 first-round game at Highland Park.

The Berries (17-9) will face Lafayette Jeff (18-12) at 10 a.m. on Memorial Day. Harrison finishes 3-25.

Jordan (3-1) held the Raiders scoreless in his six innings of work on five hits and one walk with six strikeouts.

“Kyle Jordan was extremely mound sharp on the mound,” Logan coach Jim Turner said. “He threw the ball hard. I thought he just pitched a great ballgame.”

Cody Graf walked the bases loaded in the seventh inning but also recorded a pair of strikeouts and held up the shutout for the Berries.

Clayton Frye hit a home run deep into the night that easily cleared the short porch in right that highlighted the Berries’ five-run fifth that gave them their 8-0 lead.

Travis Palmer started the rally with a double. He moved to third on Cory Rozzi’s single. When Rozzi took second, Palmer scored on an error to make it 4-0. Frye followed with his two-run blast. Jacob Shelton singled and later scored on a wild pitch, and Dustin Clements doubled and eventually scored on an RBI groundout by Chris Jones to close out the scoring.

Frye had a two-out RBI double into the right-center gap to get the Berries on the board in the first inning. The Berries added two more in the second to take a 3-0 lead when Palmer was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, and Jones later scored on a passed ball after drawing a walk in his at-bat.

The 36-minute rain delay occurred in the top of the second inning. The game didn’t end until 11:10 p.m.

The Bronchos defeated Marion 16-4 in five innings in the first game of the night. Turner said his squad knows it will be in for a battle on Memorial Day morning.

“It always is a challenge no matter who you play over here,” Turner said.

As for who will pitch for the Berries, Turner said, “I’m not quite sure yet.”

McCutcheon and Kokomo will meet in the later semifinal. The final is set for 7 p.m. Monday night.
