H.S. HOOPS: Wright hits grand slam as Central beats Estill County

RICHMOND — Jimmy Wright opened the season with a big performance at the plate Wednesday against Estill County.

The senior catcher hit a grand slam and also had a triple and walked as Madison Central cruised to a 10-4 win at Don Richardson Field. The Engineers took a 2-0 lead in the first, but the Indians got a run back in the bottom of the inning, then added five more runs in the second.

Sophomore Nick Kavanaugh started and went three innings for Central (1-0), allowing two runs. Sophomore Alex Georgel pitched two innings, also allowing two runs, before juniors Jonah Kelsey and Austin Templeton each pitched one scoreless inning.

In his first plate appearance, Wright ripped a tripled into the right-field corner. Ben Fisher followed with a RBI groundout.

In the second inning, Central sent nine batters to the plate. Joseph Holbrook was hit by a pitch, Griffin Hotchkiss reached on a fielder’s choice and Jacob Frazier singled. Jake Caldwell walked to load the bases.

Wright, a left-handed catcher who has already signed with Morehead State, crushed a pitch well over the right field fence to give the Indians a 5-2 lead.

Fisher followed with a single, then two batters later, Ben Morin delivered an RBI single.

Central added three more runs in the fourth. Wright walked and scored on a wild pitch, Kavanaugh had an RBI single and Holbrook gave the Indians a 9-2 lead on an RBI fielder’s choice.

In the fifth inning, Dakota Lakes singled and scored on a wild pitch.

The Indians are set to return to action Friday at home against Madison Southern.
