H.S. BASEBALL: Indians get back on track

RICHMOND — The Indians bounced back from their first loss of the season with a solid win Friday at Don Richardson Field.

Kirt Caldwell and Jonah Kelsey combined to pitch a one-hit shutout as Madison Central (4-1) defeated Anderson County, 4-0. Jimmy Wright hit a home run, his third of the season, and the Indians collected six hits.

“It was nice to get back on track after (Thursday’s loss to Bryan Station),” Central coach Steve Roof said. “It’s still early in the season. There’s still lots of lessons to be learned.”

Caldwell, a senior, started and went five innings. He allowed one hit and one walk and struck out three.

Kelsey went the final two innings and walked two while striking out four.

“I’ve been real pleased with our pitching up to this point,” Roof said. “We are throwing a lot of strikes and making the plays. That’s giving us a chance.”

Central took control by scoring twice in the first inning. The Indians loaded the bases and Kelsey drew a walk to push across the game’s first run. Chris Wells was then hit by a pitch, which also scored another run.

Wright homered in the second and in the fourth inning Griffin Hotchkiss walked and scored on an error.

Central opened the season with three-straight wins before falling at home Thursday to Bryan Station, 2-1.

The Indians are set to head to Florida for a spring break trip. Central will begin play in the Florida Beach Bash Sunday against Russell County.
