Logan baseball continues to mash, sweeps BC

Caston sweeps West Central; Pioneer splits with Tri-County.

Logansport’s baseball team continued its assault on opposing pitching Saturday in a sweep of Benton Central.

At the same time the Berries got a couple of pitching gems of their own.

It resulted a quick pair of games against the Bison in what was the Berries’ first home games of the season. Both games were five-inning shutouts and were by scores of 13-0 and 10-0.

The Berries improved to 9-2 and have scored 124 runs through the first 11 games, averaging 11.3 runs per contest.

“I don’t know if I’ve ever had a team that just rocks the ball around the park like we do,” Logan coach Jim Turner Jr. told WSAL in a postgame interview. “They rattle the fences, I mean they hit the ball hard.

“It’s everybody. It’s every player. I can bring guys off the bench who hit the ball hard. We’re very fortunate. We have a good ballclub. It’s one of those years where you throw the ball out and say go get ‘em.”

Clayton Frye had five hits including two doubles and four RBIs on the day for Logan, which batted in just eight frames for the day in the twinbill.

Cooper Kinnaman had a five-RBI day, four in game two when he ended the game with a walkoff single. Marcus Record had a triple, two doubles and three RBIs on the day. Kyle Jordan had three hits and two RBIs.

Angelo Scagoli had two hits in the opener, and Travis Palmer broke out of his slump in game two going 3-for-3 with two doubles.

Palmer tossed a four-hit shutout in the opener, striking out six. Dustin Clements followed with a five-hit shutout in game two, fanning eight.

“The pitchers were dominant,” Turner said.

The Berries also turned four double plays on the day, and Palmer threw out a runner at home from center field to keep the Bison off the board in game two.
