SOFTBALL

Kokomo 16, Marion 2, 5 innings

Kami Sharp led the way as the Wildkats blasted the Giants in North Central Conference action at Marion.

Sharp pitched a three-hitter, allowing no earned runs. She struck out eight and walked none. She helped her own cause with a 2-for-2 day at the plate. She drove in a run.

Also for Kokomo (8-9, 3-1 NCC), Sarah Haughn was 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI, Schuyla Sharp was 2 for 3 with a triple and Emily Fisher drove in a run.

“I thought we kind of overwhelmed them early and just kind of took off from there,” Kokomo coach Mike Susong said. “We put up five runs in the top of the first and that kind of set the tone for the game. Kami was very sharp.”

BASEBALL

Northwestern 9, Taylor 3

Northwestern pitchers Logan Macaluso, Ryan Cavazos and Austin Bowley combined on a six-hitter to key the Tigers’ road win.

Macaluso started and worked three strong innings, Cavazos worked the next three and Bowley closed with an inning of work.

Evan Matlock went 4 for 4 to lead the Tigers’ 11-hit attack. He scored three runs. Bowley hit a two-run homer.

“We started off hot, put up nine runs in the first two innings, and then we kind of got in a coasting mode mentally and had some poor at-bats late in the game. Luckily, on the mound we did a great job of throwing strikes, working ahead of hitters, and had only two walks and defensively we played well,” Northwestern coach Kyle Beachy said.

Northwestern improved to 4-1 in the Mid-Indiana Conference and 11-7 overall. Taylor dropped to 1-4 and 9-12.

Taylor coach Brent Owens pointed to relief pitcher Brandon Bassett as a bright spot for his team. Making his varsity debut, Bassett pitched 42/3 scoreless innings.

Owens also noted Logan Williams and Cole Braun had their first varsity hits. Williams finished 2 for 2 and Braun drove in a run. Tyler Gatlin also drove in a run.
