SOFTBALL: Berries 10-run rule Warriors

The sun finally came out, and the Berry bats finally came alive.

Logansport’s softball team snapped out of a collective slump with a 12-2 win over Winamac on Thursday at Fincher Field.

“I think it was the sun,” Logan coach Jim Turner said. “Hopefully we kind of turned the corner.”

After a string of rainouts and bad weather, it was still chilly and windy out. And the Berries (4-5) were able to send some balls flying into the jet stream.

Madyson Price went 3-for-4 with a double and five RBIs to lead the Berries. Bailey Kelley went 3-for-4 with a double and three RBIs.

Mallory Rowe blasted an RBI double over the left fielder’s head. Shannon Sink and Kristie Flora each went 2-for-2. Alexis Rennewanz had a base hit and three runs scored. Sydney Thompson had a hit and run scored, and Hunter Curl added an RBI and two runs scored.

Bailie Long fanned eight in the five-inning win. She allowed two runs on four hits and one walk.

The Warriors (6-3) had a good start, jumping out to a 2-0 lead after the top of the first inning. But the Berries answered with three runs in their half of the first. They plated one in the second, three in the fourth and ended it early with six in the fifth.

Chantel Heinsen went 2-for-3 with a run scored to lead the Warriors. Heidi Hendryx had an RBI single. Bethany Brogdon had an RBI sac fly. Courtney Seymour drew a walk and scored a run. Brooke Daugherty added a base hit.

Brogdon got the start and allowed six runs (three earned) in four innings pitched.

“We tried to stay with them there,” Winamac coach Jennifer Belcher said. “Bethany had a little pain in her arm and we brought Kallie [Rasmussen] in and we just couldn’t hang with them.

“She’ll be fine. She has a little soreness in her shoulder now and again. She just has to fight through it the best she can. We have another game tomorrow.”

The Warriors only committed one error in the contest, but the Berries played nearly flawlessly and might have put together their best game of the season thus far.

“We gave up one we should have caught in the first inning, but after that we turned a double play and played the bunt well,” Bacon said. “We got our bunts down and almost got a squeeze in there, but it was a foul. Hopefully this will get us going.”

Price and Kelley turned a 3-6 double play in the third inning.

The only bad news for the Berries is that starting center fielder Emily Prentice is out at least three weeks with a stress fracture in her back. She could be out for up to 4-6 weeks.

Prentice, a sophomore, led the Berries in batting average last season and started on the mound in their sectional game against Lafayette Jeff.

“She gets fitted for a brace next week,” Bacon said. “Some of the girls stepped up.”

The Berries open North Central Conference play at home against Muncie Central on Saturday.

Winamac hosts South Newton for a Midwest Conference game tonight.
