Logansport baseball splits DH at Penn

Pioneer sweeps WC; Winamac doubles up Caston.

Logansport’s baseball team continued its high scoring ways in a doubleheader split at Penn on Saturday.

The Berries dropped the opener 12-7 before winning the game two 8-7.

The Berries (5-2) pounded out 26 hits on the day, 14 in the opener and 12 in game two.

They also have a talented pitching staff but they’ve given up a lot of runs in their two losses against quality teams, McCutcheon and Penn.

Logan coach Jim Turner said once his pitchers started mixing in more offspeed stuff they were more effective against the Kingsmen (4-2).

“They’re not mixing their pitches enough. There’s a difference of throwing strikes and throwing strikes for a reason. It seems like they’re not hitting their spots,” he said. “They’re throwing too many hitting strikes when we get ahead.

“We’ve got strong arms.”

The Berries were in danger of getting swept when they trailed 7-5 entering the sixth inning. But they opened the frame with three straight singles to load the bases. Jacob Shelton then had an infield RBI single to draw them to within one run. Dustin Clements followed with what turned out to be a game-winning two-run double.

Clements relieved Kyle Jordan in the bottom of the frame. After allowing three runs on four hits in one inning of relief in the opener, Clements mowed down the Kingsmen in game two for a two-inning save.

He worked a 1-2-3 sixth with the help of a caught stealing by catcher Chris Jones. He then got out of a jam in the seventh with the tying run on second and two outs he deflected a hard-hit ball up the middle that Jordan corralled and made a nice play to first that Clayton Frye scooped just in time for the third out to give the Berries the win.
