After a brief hiatus, the bashin’ Berries were back at it Wednesday at Kokomo.
The Berries, one of the highest scoring teams in the state, snapped a three-game losing streak with a 15-6 win over the Wildkats on a beautiful day for baseball at Highland Park.
Logansport improved to 12-5 and 1-3 in the North Central Conference. Kokomo dropped to 8-9 and 1-3.
Logansport pounded out 17 hits in the win, including nine doubles. Six different Berries had a multi-hit game in the contest.
Jacob Shelton went 4-for-4 with three doubles, an RBI and three runs scored for Logan.
“We came back like we have been at the beginning of the year. We fell down a little bit but we picked it back up tonight and we’ll be back at it tomorrow,” Shelton said. “We got up there before the game today and we worked on some stuff. We hit through the ball and I just thought the swings were a lot better tonight.”
Marcus Record went 3-for-5 with two doubles, three RBIs and four runs scored.
The senior right fielder also showed off his speed when he had a straight steal of home to give the Berries a 5-3 lead in the fourth inning.
“We’re getting our hitting back. I like to see that,” Record said. “We were in a little slump there but now we’re stroking, we feel good about that.
“We’ve just got to focus more. Our heads weren’t in it at all yesterday and now we’re getting our heads more in it and we played a lot better.”
