Prep roundup: Downey leads NW past LCC

Maconaquah baseball improves to 7-3

Keagan Downey went 2-for-4 at the plate with a pair of home runs and five RBIs, leading Northwestern’s baseball squad to a 7-5 win over visiting and 2A No. 3-ranked Lafayette Central Catholic Friday.

Downey socked a two-run homer in the third inning to pull the Tigers (5-4) within 4-3. Trailing 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Downey belted a three-run shot to put Northwestern in front for good at 7-5.

“He’s seeing the ball really well and taking good swings on pitches he can hit,” Northwestern coach Kyle Beachy said of Downey. “He’s being patient at the plate and it all came together and paid off for him [Friday].”

Evan Matlock picked up the victory on the hill in a complete-game effort. He struck out three and walked five, scattering six hits and allowing no earned runs.

Austin Pyle and Eric Vas both added 2-for-4 nights at the dish in the win for the Tigers.

“Every win is big, but this one is especially big, going out against a great program like LCC,” Beachy said. “We showed we can come back in ball games when we’re down, and that’s big for us.”

MACONAQUAH 13, MANCHESTER 1, 5 INN.

The Braves (7-3) pounded out 17 hits to supply starter Josh Holmes with ample support.

Holmes worked four innings, giving up one run on four hits while fanning six. Kade Dennis worked the fifth, allowing one hit and striking out one.

Jorge Cortez led the offense with a 4-for-4 night at the plate. He belted a pair of doubles and added two RBIs. Will Feller went 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and four RBIs. Dennis, Taylor Lamble and Vince Taylor each added a pair of hits, and Josh Fewell added a triple in the win.

CASS 14, TWIN LAKES 1, 6 INN.

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

Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
