PREP ROUNDUP: Eastern beats Tri-Central with walk-off single in bottom of 7th

Smith throws 2-hitter as Western beats WL in baseball.

Ally Oyler drove in the game winning run in the bottom of the seventh inning to give Eastern a 9-8 win over Tri-Central in softball action Friday.

The seventh inning started off with the score tied 8-8. Eastern’s Sara Summers singled, followed by McKenzie Marner’s single, and Haley Johnston walked to load the bases. Brooke Stout hit into a fielder’s choice, which Tri-Central fielded cleanly, opting to throw out Summers at home. Ally Oyler then hit one over the left fielder’s head, scoring Marner with the winner.

Abby Oyler was the winning pitcher, only pitching 2/3 of an inning. Quinlyn Hochstedler pitched the first 6 1/3 innings.

“Both pitchers [the starters from TC and Eastern] really struggled,” Eastern coach Jerry Haines said. “It was really tough, and both pitchers deserve a medal for pitching in this kind of weather. There were a lot of wild pitches, and quite a few walks, but it was a hard played game.”

Summers led Eastern with three singles and a triple. Abby Oyler added a triple and a single, and Ally Oyler had two singles.




Logansport 10, Peru 5

The Berries scored eight runs in the fifth inning, which gave Peru its fifth loss in seven games.

“They hit [the ball] where we weren’t in the fifth inning,” Peru coach Eric Isenberg said.

Joel Comerford was the losing pitcher.

Andrew Adelsparger led Peru with two singles. Kyle Marburger, Collin Quin, and Matt Kaufmann each had a double. Kaufmann also had two RBIs.

No. 1 LCC 4, Eastern 1

Eastern (4-7) started the game off by scoring a run in its first at bat, but Class A No. 1-ranked Lafayette Central Catholic took over after that to score four unanswered runs.

“We went out there, and played pretty well against the No. 1 team in the state,” Eastern coach Nick Sale said. “I thought our effort, enthusiasm and confidence was there. It was great seeing those guys bounce back, especially with conference starting next week.”
