Berries knock off first-place Richmond in NCC battle

Berries knock off first-place Richmond in NCC battle

Lately, the Logansport Berries baseball team has fallen into the habit of giving up an early lead and playing from behind.

On Saturday against Richmond at Jim Turner Field, the Berries found that habits are hard to break as they once again came from an early deficit to hand the Red Devils their first North Central Conference loss, 7-2.

The Berries (14-6, 2-3 NCC) stayed in the hunt for the league title with the win over the first-place Red Devils (15-5, 4-1), who entered on an 11-game winning streak. Logan is now two games back in the loss column with a game left against Richmond on March 23 at Logan.

With one out in the first inning the Red Devils started to go to work. After getting the leadoff hitter to ground out second, starting pitcher Travis Palmer had a batter reach on an error followed by back-to-back base hits by Matt Morrow and Tanner Marlow to score Isaak Snyder for the first run of the game. With two outs Palmer gave up a hit to Richmond’s starting pitcher Kyler Helms to plate Morrow for the early 2-0 lead.

In the Logan half of the first, a Marcus Record strikeout and a Palmer fly out brought Clayton Frye to the plate with two outs. The big lefty wasted no time in depositing a Helms fastball over the center-field fence to make it a 2-1 game after one complete.

Logan faced just four Red Devils in the top of the second and faced no real threat. Then things started to get interesting in the bottom of the inning when the Berries came to the plate. Leadoff hitter Dustin Clements was nailed with a fastball that required an assisted walk to first by the home plate umpire as Clements wasn’t happy with the pitch. That brought to the plate Kyle Jordan who ended up at first courtesy of a walk. Catcher Chris Jones then came to the plate and was also hit by Helms to load the bases. A wild pitch scored Clements from third just before a Cooper Kinnaman sacrifice fly to center scored Jordan to give the Berries two runs in the inning and a 3-2 lead.
