H.S. BASEBALL: Indians bounce back

RICHMOND — After being no-hit by Scott County on Friday in Georgetown, the Indians bats came alive Saturday at the Louisville Invitational Tournament.

Madison Central defeated South Oldham, 10-9, in nine innings then beat Providence (Ind.), 9-1.

The Indians won all three games they played in the tournament. Central defeated Ballard, 3-1, Thursday in Louisville.

Against South Old-ham, the Indians scored three runs in the first inning and never trailed, but they still needed some extra-inning heroics to claim the victory. After both teams scored three runs in the eighth inning, Nick Kavanaugh homered to left field in the ninth inning.

Kirt Caldwell retired South Oldham in order in the bottom of the ninth to seal the victory.

Jimmy Wright was 3-for-4 with a two-run home run in the fourth and two doubles. The catcher had four RBI, scored a run and also drew a walk.

Seth Richardson scored three times, Ben Morin scored a run and had an RBI. Ben Fisher was 4-for-4 with two RBI and Kavanaugh was 2-for-5 with two RBI.

Trey Sexton started for Central and went 3 2/3 innings, allowing four runs on five hits with seven strikeouts.

Austin Templeton pitched 3 1/3 innings, allowing four runs (two earned) on six hits. Kavanaugh pitched one inning and allowed one run.

Against Providence, the Indians trailed 1-0 early, but scored eight times in the third inning to take control.

Cory Mullins doubled to start off Central’s big inning. Wright followed with an RBI single, Morin singled and Fisher added an RBI single.

Jonah Kelsey ripped a two-run double, Kavanaugh had an RBI single, Mullins had an RBI single and Wright drew a bases-load walk.

Kelsey was 3-for-3 with two doubles and two RBI.

Kirk Humphrey singled and scored in the sixth for the Indians.

Caldwell started for Central and went six innings, allowing one run on six hits. Kelsey pitched the final inning and had two strikeouts.

The Indians are set to return to action Monday at home against Scott County.
