YOUTH BASEBALL: McPike motors on; Final 4 is set

Russiaville sending 3 squads to Kasey Tourney Final 4


Pitchers are allowed six innings over two games meaning Justin Hurlock and Wallace can pitch four innings apiece in today’s game.

McPike took control early against Mike’s. After Justin Hurlock struck out the side in the top of the first, McPike scored two runs without a hit in the bottom of the first.

The Astros broke the game open with six runs in the second inning. Dalton Jones, Brendon Partlow and Mitchell Dean drew walks to load the bases with one out. Wallace followed with an RBI single up the middle, then Hurlock cracked a grand slam to right-center field. Jones added an RBI single later in the inning.

The Astros tacked on single runs in the third and fourth innings. Jones’ RBI groundout in the fourth ended the game on the 10-run mercy rule.

McPike received contributions from several different players. Eight of the nine starters reached base at least one time with seven recording hits. Mitchell Dean, the No. 2 hitter in the order, was 1 for 1 with two walks. Jones, the No. 8 hitter, was 1 for 2 with a walk and two RBI.

Palmer Harrell had Mike’s lone hit.


Three Stout and Son hurlers combined to strike out a dozen King’s batters at Northside and carry the Russiaville squad past the defending champions.

Gavin White started and threw the first, third and fifth innings, notching seven strikeouts. Avery Hayes threw the second and part of the sixth inning, notching two whiffs. And Collin Rassel threw the fourth and part of the sixth, with three more strikeouts.

At the plate for Stout and Son (16-8), Hayden Shepherd singled and scored twice, Hayes had an RBI single, and White and Micah Gremelspacher both singled and scored.

Hayden Shepherd singled and scored twice. Hayes singled in a run. White singled and scored a run. And Micah Gremelspacher singled and scored.
