Friday roundup: Logan baseball slams Peru 19-4

Cass' Wilburn pitches one-hitter in rout at Twin Lakes.

Chris Jones had a five hits including a grand slam and Kyle Jordan was strong both on the mound and at the plate in the Logansport baseball team’s 19-4 win in seven innings at Peru Friday.

Jones, the Berries’ starting catcher, was moved up to the No. 2 spot in the lineup and delivered by going 5-for-6 on the night with a double, and his grand slam in the seventh gave the Berries (7-2) their 19-4 lead.

“Chris is always on base, gives us RBI opportunities and he’s a great base runner,” Logan coach Jim Turner told WSAL in a postgame interview. “He could be a great leadoff man. A lot of years I’d bat him leadoff.”

Jordan (2-1) went the distance on the hill. He allowed four runs (three earned) on six hits and fanned 12. He struck out the side in both the third and seventh innings.

“He seemed to be in control and he was mixing his pitches better today, I thought. His control was sharp,” Turner told WSAL. “How can you feel pressure when you’ve got a team that’s scoring like that.”

Indeed, the Berries are scoring 11.2 runs per game through their first nine games.

“There’s can’t be a lot of pressure on our pitchers,” Turner said. “What are we, 7-2 on the road. That’s pretty darn good. And the numbers we’re putting up, oh my goodness.”

Jordan hit his fourth home run of the season to lead off the seventh to give the Berries a 14-4 lead. He had four hits on the night including two in the fifth inning alone, when the Tigers had a rough inning defensively. It was a 5-4 game after four before the Berries struck for seven in the fifth to break it open. They utilized some small ball and took advantage of three of the Tigers’ six errors committed in the contest.

Marcus Record also had four hits on the night including a double and a pair of RBI singles.

Angelo Scagnoli and Dustin Clements added two hits apiece. Clayton Frye had a single and two RBIs. Xavier Luna and Brad Nies each added an RBI single. Travis Palmer and Cooper Kinnaman each chipped in an RBI.

Cameron Beauchamp hit a two-run home run for the Tigers (4-3), who used three sophomore pitchers in the contest. Nolan Brimbury added a double and run scored.

The Berries open their home slate for two games against Benton Central starting at 11:30 a.m. today.

Cass 14, Twin Lakes 1

Cass (6-3) scored 10 runs in the top of the sixth inning to get the win in Monticello.

The Kings’ Jake Wilburn pitched a one-hitter, allowing one run.

Wilburn also led at the plate with a single and triple. R.J. Phillips and Jake Miller each had two singles for other Kings hits.

Rossville 3, Caston 1

Jake Kingery homered for the Comets but that would be all the offense they would muster up in a loss at Rossville.

Trey Young got the start and allowed three runs (two earned) on six hits and one walk in five innings, striking out three. Galen Rentschler struck out two of the three batters he faced in an inning of relief.

“We got a very solid pitching performance from Trey and Galen, two young arms we are excited about that keep improving with each inning pitched,” Caston coach Blake Mollenkopf said. “We were defensively solid. Offensively we struggled adjusting to the curveball tonight. We were only able to put together three hits, which needs to improve as we go forward.”

The Comets (0-8) travel to West Central for a doubleheader today. Rossville improved to 5-5.

Winamac 6, Tri-County 0


Bethany Brogdon pitched a four-hit shutout as Winamac improved to 4-4 overall and 2-1 in the Midwest Conference.

Brogdon allowed one walk go to along with the four hits, and she struck out 15.

“Brogdon pitched well [Friday],” Winamac coach Jenni Belcher said. “She did a nice job of changing speeds and keeping batters off balance.”

Brogdon also led Winamac at the plate with three singles and an RBI. Courtney Seymour added two singles and scored two runs. Chantel Heinsen added a single and two RBIs, and Briana Gallegos contributed with a single and two runs scored.
