Prep roundup for Friday, May 2

Western takes sole possession of MIC baseball lead

(Continued)

Dalton Leighty started and got the win for the Panthers. He threw all seven innings with two earned runs, seven hits, one walk and seven strikeouts.

“Really, we just came out cold,” Western coach Quentin Brown said. “But they came out and battled through a little adversity. We came on strong late so I just think we needed a little bit of time to get to the pitcher. The pitcher was very good for Hamilton Heights. [The Panthers] just battled and played well.”

Western is alone atop the MIC standings at 2-0. Six teams are locked in a tie for second at 1-1.

Peru 5, Northwestern 4

Northwestern scored three runs in the bottom of the first to take a 3-2 lead, but the Purple Tigers’ bats went largely quiet the rest of the way.

“We scattered a few hits, but struck out 10 times so didn’t really put the pressure on the defense too much,” Northwestern coach Kyle Beachy said.

Peru scored the go-ahead run in the fifth inning. The Bengal Tigers reached on a leadoff walk. After Northwestern recorded two outs, Peru had an RBI single.

Northwestern pitcher Evan Matlock went the distance. He allowed four earned runs and four hits. He struck out four, but walked six.

“For us, it was the walks and a couple untimely passed balls that killed us. They really didn’t hit the ball very well,” Beachy said. “We were in position to score in the seventh — had runners on second and third and Austin Pyle hit a rocket shot to center field and the guy made a leaping catch to end the game.”

Pyle finished 2 for 4 with a two-run homer. Erick Vas was 2 for 5 with an RBI double.

Northwestern dropped to 8-6 overall and 1-1 in the Mid-Indiana Conference.

Maconaquah 17, Eastern 6, 5 innings

The Braves improved to 8-5 on the year (1-1 MIC) with the win in Bunker Hill, busting out for five runs in the first, four in the second and eight in the fourth to overwhelm the Comets.
