Titans continue hot play

Kokomo boys win Muncie Relays title.

Korey Sexton and Logan Barnes pitched complete games to lead Taylor’s baseball team to a doubleheader sweep of Tippecanoe Valley on Saturday at TV. The Titans took a 3-2 win in the opener and another 3-2 win in the closer.

Sexton made his first varsity start in the opener. He allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks. He struck out 13. Barnes followed with a strong performance of his own. He allowed two runs on seven hits and one walk. He struck out two.

“Korey Sexton and Logan Barnes came up huge for us on the mound,” Taylor coach Brent Owens said. “Neither one of them had pitched more than an inning through the first eight games. We really needed to rest Cameron Clark, Nick Hoover, Drew Hansen and Allen Stout as the four of them had thrown a lot of innings in the previous seven days. We really wanted all four of those pitchers fresh as we start [Mid-Indiana] Conference play [Tuesday].

“Sexton came out and threw an unbelievable game that included striking out 13 of the TV’s 21 outs. Barnes then pitched a very efficient game where he only threw 80 pitches in seven innings. I am just so proud of those two for stepping up and helping us continue our winning ways.”

Taylor has won seven straight games.

In the opener, Stout went 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI singles and Trevor Marler went 2-for-3.

In the second game, Hansen had an RBI triple and Barnes had an RBI single and three stolen bases. In the sixth inning, Barnes broke a 1-all tie with a bunt single that scored Sexton. Barnes later stole home on a double steal for the Titans’ final run.

Taylor is 7-3 — and all 10 of its games have been decided by two runs or less.

It was easy to tell as a red rash covered her arms and her face was painfully swollen. She is one of those people who loves being outdoors yet highly allergic to the common plant. Sometimes I believe she can get the rash by simply looking at the noxious weed.
