Logan baseball sweeps Richmond

Logansport’s baseball team got itself back into the hunt for the North Central Conference race by recording a sweep at Richmond on Saturday.

The Berries (11-5, 3-3 NCC), who struggled against Kokomo earlier this week, quickly recovered by sweeping a strong Richmond team. The Berries won by scores of 2-1 and 11-8.

“Sweeps are going to be few and far between for any of these teams, I think,” Logan coach Jim Turner told WSAL in a postgame interview. “That’s gravy right there, on the road.”

Dustin Clements had the game-winning RBI double in the top of the seventh inning in game one. Clayton Frye started the rally with a double.

Cody Graf got the win in relief. The game ended on a great catch by Tommy Corcoran in deep right field with the bases loaded full of Red Devils (11-7, 3-3).

Frye got the start and pitched five strong innings.

The Berries busted out of their collective slump in a big way in game two. They parked four home runs and held on at the end for the win.

“It made them relax because they eked out a win in that first game. So they relaxed,” Turner said. “We’ve got lively bats. It doesn’t surprise me anywhere in the order if the ball is hit out of the ballpark or in the gap.”

Travis Palmer and Nito Luna hit three-run blasts in the same inning. Corcoran later hit a two-run lined shot off the light pole in left. Cory Rozzi then hit one completely out of historic McBride Stadium, over the second fence as the ball landed on Peacock Road.

Clements got the start and allowed three runs in 5 1/3 innings. The Red Devils made things interesting by scoring six runs in the final two frames. But they stranded six base runners during that span. Kyle Jordan came in and got the final two big outs for the save.

Jacob Shelton went 2-for-3 with two runs scored in the contest for the Berries.

Richmond outhit Logan 6-4 in the opener and 13-9 in game two but had nothing to show for it. The Berries also got away with five errors in game two.

The Berries travel to first-place Huntington North (5-1 NCC) on Tuesday.
