Berries rally past Raiders

Logan scores 4 run in bottom of 6th to beat Harrison

LAFAYETTE — Logansport’s baseball team has bashed the ball to the tune of nearly nine runs per game this season.

With the season on the line, the Berries showed they can play some small ball as well.

Logan utilized two sacrifice bunts that went for hits during a four-run rally in the sixth inning of a 5-2 win over Harrison Saturday at the Class 4A Lafayette Jeff Sectional at Loeb Stadium.

The Berries (20-9) will face McCutcheon (23-8) at 7 p.m. Monday in the sectional championship game.

Trailing 2-1 going into the bottom of the sixth, Dustin Clements said he gave his team a pep talk in the dugout.

“I was like, “We can’t hang our heads. It’s sectionals, we’ve got to get the bats going,’” he said. “That’s what we do.”

Clements then promptly delivered a liner into left field for a base hit to get the rally started.

Kyle Jordan followed with a bunt that got just past the pitcher in front of the second baseman for a bunt hit.

With runners on first and second, Travis Palmer laid a bunt down the third-base line. The pitcher, Matt McConnell, fielded it. The third baseman was not on the bag as he had to respect the bunt and the throw to first was not in time as the first baseman was not covering the bag as he thought the play was going to be at third, and Palmer was safe for the second straight bunt hit.

“That’s all it takes is to get the bunts down,” Palmer said. “We’ve got to do our jobs when the job needs to be done, and we did.”

Cooper Kinnaman then drew a four-pitch walk for an RBI that tied it at 2-2. It was one of several good at-bats against McConnell and his pitch count was up so Harrison coach Pat Lowrey removed him for Jeep Morehouse.
