H.S. BASEBALL: Pirates roll past Burgin

BEREA — The Pirates prepared for a showdown with one of the biggest rivals with a big-time victory Monday at home.

Gabe Long had an inside-the-park grand slam and Devin Strong earned a shutout victory as Berea Community defeated Burgin, 10-0, in six innings.

The loss snapped a two-game losing streak for the Pirates (11-6).

Berea is set to take on Madison Southern today at home in the first meeting of the season between the district rivals.

Strong worked out a bases-loaded jam in the first and the game remained scoreless until the third inning.

“He didn’t have any more problems the rest of the game,” Berea coach Sean Linville said of Strong. “He just got a little rattled.”

Strong started off the rally with a double, then Daniel Wilkerson and Hunter Wilson both walked. Long then ripped a shot in the right field corner that scored all three runs. The junior rounded the bases and beat the throw to home.

Later in the inning, Jon Smith singled and scored.

Berea added four more runs in the fourth.

Strong singled, stole a base a scored. Wilson walked and scored. Smith added a two-run single and Long reached and scored a run.

In the sixth, freshman Trevor Woods had an RBI single to give Berea a 10-run advantage.

Strong went the distance, giving up three hits and four walks.

Strong was also 1-for-1 with two walks. Wilson walked three times and scored twice. Smith was 3-for-4 with three singles, a run scored and two RBIs.
