YOUTH BASEBALL: Kasey Tournament roundup

White's tops Burger King in opening day of tourney

Taylor Southeast champion White’s Meat Market used a quick-strike attack to take an early lead and went on to beat Russiaville squad Burger King 7-3 in a David A. Kasey Memorial Youth Baseball Tournament first-round game Saturday afternoon at Eastside.

White’s scored four runs in the top of the first inning. With one out, six straight batters reached base — Brandon Hansen singled, Matt Harrison cracked an RBI single, Richard Taper drew a walk, Nathan Keene singled, Josh Ferguson hit an RBI single and Jacob Powell reached on an error.

“In tournament time, being visitor is not a bad thing — put runs on the board early and make them chase you and we did that,” White’s skipper Scott Sullivan said.

White’s pitcher Harrison made the early lead stand. He fired a five-hitter, struck out 14 and walked three. He struck out BK’s final five batters.

“We knew the top of their order was going to hit the ball so we were willing to [work around] a few runs for them. And we gave them one on bad throws,” Sullivan said. “We haven’t been pitching Matt as much lately because we wrapped up our league so long ago. So this last week, we tried to get him sharp, and he was pretty sharp [Saturday]. We expect it from him. He’s our ace.”

BK scored its first run in the bottom of the third inning when speedy Weston Gingerich reached on a bunt single and kept on motoring all the way around the bases to score on a pair of throwing errors.

White’s answered with a run in the top of the fourth for a 5-1 lead. Kendall Lanning reached on a single, stole second, moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on Hansen’s sacrifice bunt.
