Kokomo rallies to defeat Logansport Post 60

Logan has to settle for split with Post 6 in Legion play.

Logansport Post 60 appeared well on its way to a sweep of Kokomo Post 6 in American Legion baseball Wednesday at Turner Field.

Logan jumped out to a 4-0 lead after two innings of play. But Post 6 starter Nathan Kirk recovered and the Sixers recorded a 6-4 comeback win to salvage a split of a two-game series.

Kirk, of Western High School, allowed four runs (two earned) on eight hits, one walk and two hit batsmen while striking out four in the nine-inning complete-game effort.

“I thought we were going to score lots of runs, but their pitcher calmed down and he threw a lot of strikes and kept us off balanced,” Logan coach Tyler Gellinger said. “I don’t think we played poorly, we just weren’t as sharp as we normally have been.”

Logan jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning on a two-run single by Clayton Frye.

Logan added two more runs in the second after back-to-back two-out errors by Kokomo and an RBI double by Jacob Shelton to make it 4-0.

But that would be the last time Post 60 would dent the scoreboard, as at one point Kirk pitched four straight innings of hitless ball from the fourth to seventh.

Zach Shilts got the start on the mound for Logan and cruised through the first two innings before running into a bout of wildness in the third. He walked the bases loaded to start the inning and Drew Bellus (Western) had an RBI single and Conner Mulligan (Northwestern) followed with a two-run single to pull Kokomo to within 4-3.

Kokomo tied the game in the fourth against reliever Frye when Eli Grimes (Kokomo) hit a bloop single, Logan Barnes (Taylor) doubled and Justin Blevens (Clinton Central) had an RBI groundout.

Kokomo scored the go-ahead run against Frye in the seventh without the benefit of a hit. After back-to-back walks and a balk, Cory Roberts (Taylor) delivered a sac fly to center to make it a 5-4 game.
