Kokomo added an insurance run against reliever Cody Graf in the ninth on an unearned run after Roberts delivered an RBI double.
Mulligan led Kokomo with two hits and two RBIs. Grimes and Bellus each had two runs scored.
Frye and Shelton had two hits apiece for Logansport. Travis Palmer had a hit and two runs scored. Nito Luna, Xavier Luna and Chris Jones each added a base hit for Logan. Marcus Record had a run scored.
Logan had just 10 players suit up in the contest, all from LHS — three recent grads and seven returnees for next year.
“We only have three that have graduated, so we’ve got a lot of guys that are getting good experience for next year, which is always good,” Gellinger said.
Logan dropped to 8-6 on the season while Kokomo improved to 4-6.
“So far it’s been good,” Gellinger said. “We’ve been trying to piece together teams. We can’t get everyone here at the same time because of other sports and graduations and stuff like that. We picked up a couple kids to pitch for us from Lewis Cass and Peru, and they’re doing well.”
Gellinger said the squad recently picked up Lewis Cass pitcher Josh Rankert, who helped the team finish third at last weekend’s Anderson/Ball State University Showcase. Graf had a complete-game gem at the Showcase.
Peru’s Kyle Marburger and Logan’s Kyle Jordan combined on a four-hit shutout in a 2-0 win at Kokomo on Tuesday night. Record and Palmer had Logan’s only two hits in that game.
Two Post 60 players are injured in Dustin Clements (broken thumb) and Lewis Cass’ Austin Clem (knee).
“Dustin might be able to come back by the end of the sectional. Clem may be back. He finds out Friday the diagnosis whether he’s done or not,” Gellinger said.
Post 60 travels to Plymouth on Friday night for a doubleheader before traveling to Terre Haute North on Sunday for two more games.
