H.S. BASEBALL: Montgomery County holds on for 6-5 win over Madison Central

RICHMOND — The Indians seemed to be a good position to pull off a come-from-behind victory Friday against Montgomery County at Don Richardson Field.

 Trailing by a run in the seventh inning, Madison Central’s first two hitters reached base — Jake Caldwell walked and Jimmy Wright singled.

That when the rally come to a halt.

Sam Lee struck out the next three batters to help Montgomery County (8-4) hang on for a 6-5 win in Richmond. The loss was the third-straight for Madison Central (8-5) since returning from a spring break trip to Florida.

The Indians never led, but did battle back from a four-run deficit by scoring four runs in the fifth inning.

Montgomery County pushed across the game-winning run in the sixth inning.

Central had 10 hits, including two hits each by Wright, Jonah Kelsey and Josh Wright. Jimmy Wright also scored twice and drove in a run.

Montgomery County took the lead with a run off Kelsey, Central’s starting pitcher, in the third inning.

The Indians tied the game in the fourth. Jimmy Wright walked and scored on a double by Josh Wright.

Montgomery County sent nine batters to the plate in the fifth and took a 5-1 lead.

Central answered back in the bottom of the inning. The Indians had six hits in the inning and batted around.

Jeremy Lakes doubled, Ben Morin singled, Caldwell singled, Wright singled, Ben Fisher walked, Kelsey delivered an RBI single and Josh Wright added an RBI single.

Kelsey started and went four-plus innings. He gave up four runs on six hits, while walking one. Austin Templeton went one inning and allowed three hits, while striking out one.

Kirkland Humphrey went 1/3 of an inning and Brady McBride pitched 2/3 of an inning.

Nick Kavanaugh pitched the final inning and had one strikeout.

Central is back in action at home today against Madison Southern. Game time is set for noon.
