Logan baseball wins at Taylor, moves to 4-1

Logansport’s baseball team held off a late Taylor rally for a 13-9 win Wednesday in Kokomo.

The Berries (4-1) were one out away from winning by 10-run rule in the fifth inning before the Titans (1-1) extended the game with two runs to make it a 13-4 ballgame on a cold night for baseball.

The Titans then struck for five more in the sixth.

“It almost feels like you didn’t win. We didn’t nail it down and do what we had to do in those innings,” Logan coach Jim Turner told WSAL.

The Berries got their 13 runs on 13 hits. Cooper Kinnaman had three hits and three RBIs to lead the way. Dustin Clements had three hits including a double and two RBIs.

Marcus Record and Jacob Shelton added two hits apiece. Record had a pair of RBIs. Chris Jones hit an RBI double. Clayton Frye and Brad Nies each added a base hit. Angelo Scagnoli drew an RBI walk.

Despite the output, Turner thought his squad could have done more.

“We had way too many popups. With the kind of pitching we were facing we should have been able to be a little bit more in control. I thought they were swinging a little bit too hard, not staying within themselves and taking the right kind of swings,” he told WSAL.

But the Berries have been a very high-scoring team through five games.

“Certainly I’m not concerned about the hitting,” Turner said.

The Logan coach has a good dilemma to face as left field appears to be a crowded spot. Nies, Scagnoli and Xavier Luna provide three good options, Turner said.

“The biggest problem I’ve got is who to play in left field. I’ve got three guys that are competing for that job and they’re all really good. We’ll just split it between them and get production as a group,” he said.
