Logan baseball drops two at Anderson

Logansport was surprised by Anderson on Saturday in a North Central Conference baseball doubleheader.

The Berries dropped two games on the road by scores of 6-2 and 6-3 to open conference play.

The Berries (11-4, 0-2 NCC) entered having won seven games in a row. Anderson improved to 7-8 and 2-0.

“We struggled at the plate, there’s no doubt about that,” Logan coach Jim Turner said of his usually high scoring team.

Turner added Anderson just got its top two pitchers back from suspension and said the Indians have another nice squad this year.

The Berries managed just three hits in the opening game against Jerred Quartier but they still led 2-1 heading into the bottom of the sixth inning. Travis Palmer had a two-run single in the third to give the Berries the lead.

But the Indians struck for five runs in the sixth. With runners on first and third and one out, Quartier had a swinging bunt single on an 0-2 pitch by Kyle Jordan that tied the game and Drew Laughlin followed with the go-ahead RBI single. The Berries committed three errors in the frame as well.

“It really came down to a swinging bunt dribbler. You couldn’t have walked it out and sat it on the grass better,” Turner said. “That tied the game and brought their red-hot hitter up and he hits a hard hit ball that we can’t handle.

“Kyle battled and pitched a great ballgame and we got beat by a swinging bunt single.”

Quartier also beat the Berries last season on the mound.

“He’s pretty good. He has a really good arm,” Turner said. “He kept the ball just about waist high, high enough where it was hard to stay off of and get a good swing at. He was really hard to hit, had a good fastball.”
