Berea downs Casey County, 16-4
The Berea Community Pirates (8-3) picked up their fifth win in the last six games with a 16-4 blowout of Casey County Friday in Liberty.
Sophomore Zach McPeek picked up the win for the Pirates, going five innings, giving up only one earned run and three total runs.
Daniel Wilson allowed one run in two innings of relief.
Berea pounded out 18 hits in the contest and scored in all but two innings.
Hunter Wilson lead the way at the plate, going 5-for-5. He scored five runs and had a stolen base.
The Pirates jumped out to an early lead scoring three runs in the first inning. They added a run in the third, two in the fifth, four in the sixth and finished the game with six runs in the seventh inning.
Berea coach Sean Linville said the game was a good confidence booster for his team and said he thought his team’s “approach at the plate was the best it’s been all season.”
“This wasn’t just bloop shots and stuff that was just getting through. What was really encouraging was that we stayed back and really drove the ball today,” Linville said. “Especially the bottom of our lineup. Our 7, 8 and 9 hitters were as good as they have been collectively all year.”
The Pirates will be back in action on Monday when they take on LCA in the All “A” Classic in Lexington.
