H.S. BASEBALL: Central picks up weekend sweep

RICHMOND — After falling on Friday night at 11th Region rival Scott County, the Indians got back on track Saturday with a pair of solid victories at Don Richardson Field in Richmond.

In the first game, Madison Central topped Christian Academy of Louisville, 5-3. Later in the day, the Indians hammered Middlesboro, 10-0, in six innings.

With the wins, Central moves to 12-4 on the season.

In the win over CAL, Jeremy Lakes overcame a bit of a slow start to pick up a complete-game victory. The junior allowed a run in both of the first two innings, but only allowed a total of five hits and five walks, while striking out five.

Hunter Kabalen was 2-for-3, Ben Morin had a triple and scored a run, Jonah Kelsey was 1-for-2, Cory Mullins was 1-for-2 and Kirk Humphrey scored twice.

In the second inning, Mullins singled and Humphrey, the pinch runner, later scored on a sac bunt by Griffin Hotchkiss.

In the third, Morin had a lead-off triple and scored on a Seth Richardson single. Richardson later scored on a wild pitch.

Central scored two more runs in the fifth. Kabalen and Kelsey singled and Mullins was hit by a pitch to load the bases. Alexander connected on a sac fly and Kelsey scored on an error.

In the win over Middlesboro, Kyle Kelsey started and got the win. The sophomore went three innings and allowed two hits and two walks with five strikeouts.

Dakota Begley pitched one inning, allowing one hit. Alexander pitched two innings and did not allow a hit.

Mullins was 2-for-2 with 2 RBI, Humphrey was 1-for-2 with a run scored, Zach Hall had a home run and 2 RBI and Ben Morin scored three runs and was 3-for-3 in stolen bases.

Central got all the offense it would need in the first inning. Morin singled and stole second and scored on a Mullins single. Josh Wright later added an RBI groundout.

The Indians scored four more times in the second. In the third, Alex Georgel had a singled and Hall followed with a pinch-hit home run. Micah McNeal had a single and scored on a sac fly by Bryar Rose.

Central is set to return to action Tuesday at home against Male.
