FRIDAY ROUNDUP: Logan baseball bashes 3 HRs in rout; Carden powers Cass softball to MIC win

With all of the rain this spring, it must’ve been time for Logansport’s baseball team to do some yard work.

The Berries went deep three times in an 11-0 win in five innings over Peru on Friday at Jim Turner Field.

“The long ball, I don’t know where that came from but that was nice,” Logan coach Jim Turner said. “All of our players are capable of them. We have more lively bats than we’ve had in the past.”

The Berries (8-2) nearly hit for the cycle in the first inning when Tommy Corcoran tripled, Cory Rozzi had an RBI single and Clayton Frye hit a two-run bomb to make it 3-0.

They completed the cycle in the second inning when No. 7 hitter Dustin Clements led off the frame with a double. Corcoran had an RBI fielder’s choice and Travis Palmer later had an RBI sac fly to make it 5-0.

The Berries batted around in the third inning and plated six more runs. Luke Vernon went yard with a two-run shot to open up the fireworks display. Chris Jones said “Goodbye, Mr. Rawlings” with a three-run shot to make it 10-0. Corcoran then singled and later scored on a wild pitch for the final run of the game.

Corcoran and Frye each went 2-for-3 in the contest. Corcoran, Frye, Clements and Jones each scored two runs.

Palmer (2-0) and Cody Graf combined for the shutout. Palmer allowed one hit and two walks in four innings, striking out three. Graf pitched a perfect fifth and fanned two of the three batters he faced.

The Tigers (7-4) started five sophomores and one freshman. Matt McKinney had their lone hit of the game in the second inning. They threw three different pitchers.

The Berries host Anderson at 11 a.m. today for a doubleheader to open up North Central Conference play.

Cass 12, Tri-Central 2 (5 innings)

Class 2A No. 10 Cass made quick work of visiting Tri-Central ahead of today’s Mid-Indiana Conference game against Hamilton Heights.

Dakota Hammonds (2-0) pitched four innings to get the win, and John Hartley pitched the final inning for the Kings (9-1). Blake Cain had a double and a single to lead the offense. Kyle Dwiggins and Ty Stover each added two hits.

N. White 14, Winamac 4 (6 innings)

The game was tied 4-4 after five and a half innings before the Vikings scored 10 runs in the bottom of the sixth to end it early.

A mental error by the Warriors opened up the floodgates for the big inning.

Levi Schultz went 2-for-4 with an RBI and run scored for the Warriors (2-10, 0-7 Midwest Conference). Maverick Schultz went 2-for-3 with a double, RBI and run scored.

Winamac hosts North White on Monday.

The Berries swept the singles spots, while the Kings swept the doubles spots in a sectional preview match at the LHS courts.

Whitney Jennings defeated Alma Reinhart 6-0, 6-0 at No. 1 singles, Rachel Jennings defeated Gabi Hartley 6-3, 6-4 in a two-hour match at No. 2 singles and Brooke Bullard defeated Ivette Prado 6-0, 6-2 at No. 3 singles.

Katie Leach and Kirsten Dollar defeated Abby Geer and Karli Armstrong 7-6 (5), 6-1 at No. 1 doubles, and Kirsten Carbaugh and Khyla Wilson defeated Rachel Sims and Kayleigh Dance 6-3, 6-1 at No. 2 doubles.

“There were several competitive matches on a nice afternoon. We can’t ask for more than that,” Cass coach Stu Engle said. “Hopefully playing a really good team like Logansport will prepare us well for a couple tough MIC matches this week.”

Cass 12, H. Heights 7

Megan Carden powered the Kings to a win at Hamilton Heights. She went 4-for-4 with two home runs, two doubles and six RBIs to lead the way.

Alexa Humerickhouse went 3-for-4, Brittany Cunningham went 2-for-4 and Emilee McCoy added a double.

Rachel Lawson got the win in relief. She allowed one run on three hits in 4 1/3 innings, striking out five. Morgan Lowe allowed six runs (three earned) on seven hits in 2 2/3 innings.

The Kings improved to 6-3 and 2-0 in MIC play.

“It was great to see the bats come alive. We definitely hit a lot better,” Cass coach Jennifer Scott said. “We started down and came back. It was nice to see us battle all the way back and win.

“We’ve got a tough week next week with Benton Central on Monday, Western on Tuesday, Maconaquah on Thursday and the Twin Lakes Invite on Friday and Saturday.”

Winamac 11, S. Newton 0 (5 innings)

Bethany Brogdon pitched a no-hitter for the Warriors. She walked one and fanned eight.

Chantel Heinsen had a double and two RBIs to lead the offense. Brogdon had a hit and three RBIs, and Heidi Hendryx had a hit and two RBIs. Maci Bischoff and Brooke Daugherty each added a hit and RBI.

The Warriors improved to 7-3 and 2-1 in MWC play.
