NW blasts Eastern in county clash

Austin Weaver pitched four shutout innings to lead Western’s baseball team past Peru 5-2 in a Mid-Indiana Conference game Thursday at Russiaville.

Weaver held Peru to just one hit. He struck out five and walked two. The Panthers used three relievers to close the game with Dalton Leighty pitching a perfect seventh for the save.

“Weaver gave us a great start. He’s done that all year,” Western coach Quentin Brown said. “We jumped out early, put up all five of our runs in the first three innings. We kind of let our foot off the gas after that. ... Their pitcher, [Logan] Primerano, is a good pitcher. We got to him early, but he settled in and was able to keep us off balance.”

Western (9-5, 4-0 MIC) managed just five hits. Austin Taylor was 1 for 2 with an RBI and Tyler Goudy was 1 for 3 with an RBI. Braxton Hunt drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.

Next up for the Panthers is a big test — Plymouth’s four-team tournament on Saturday. Western plays Carroll of Allen County in the opening round with Penn facing Plymouth in the other game.

Brown is excited for the gathering of Class 4A squads.

“I’ve tried my best to not bring it up to my players as much as possible. I wanted to focus on one game at a time this week. Now that these games are over, I can’t stop talking about it,” Brown said. “I’ve told our guys this is like a sectional for us. This is the type of opponents we’re going to see in the sectional this year. [Western is new to the Class 4A Lafayette Sectional this year.] This is going to show where we’re at as a team.”

NW 14, Eastern 4, 5 innings

Austin Bowley blasted a three-run homer in the first inning to help Northwestern (10-7, 3-1 MIC) set the tone offensively.
