H.S. BASEBALL: Madison Southern holds off Berea

BEREA — Behind a strong start from Lukas Owens and another home run from Devin Vanover, the Eagles carried a big lead into the seventh inning of Saturday’s district showdown with Berea Community.

But, the Pirates didn’t go down without a fight.

Berea Community pushed across three runs before Madison Southern was able to hang on for a 4-3 win at home. The victory was the first for the Eagles (4-18) in more than a month. Lukas Owens started for Southern and pitched five no-hit innings, allowing four walks with five strikeouts. Easten Shouse pitched the final two innings, giving up three hits and three runs, all of which were unearned.

The Eagles got three runs in the second inning. John David Meeks scored on a double by Jacob Dixon, Lane Owen singled and Ty Schadt drove in a run with a groundout. Later in the inning, Caleb Miller added an RBI single.

In the third, Vanover ripped his sixth home run of the year to give the Eagles a 4-0 lead.

The Pirates didn’t have a hit until Trevor Woods led-off the seventh with a single. Daniel Wilkerson singled and Gabe Long reached on an error and Bradley Atkins added an RBI single. Sean Long reached on a error and with only one out, Berea had the tying and go-ahead runs on base.

But, Shouse got a groundout and a strikeout to end the game.

Gabe Long went the distance on the mound for Berea (7-10) and allowed only five hits.

For Southern, Owen was 2-for-3 with a run scored and Vanover was 1-for-3 with a walk and an RBI.

Southern is set to return to action Monday at home against Pulaski County.

Berea is set to return to action Monday at McCreary Central.
