H.S. BASEBALL: Indians get past Generals

RICHMOND — The Indians got solid pitching performances from Trey Sexton and Austin Templeton and a clutch hit from Jimmy Wright that led to a win Wednesday in Lexington.

Wright tripled home the go-ahead run in the top of the seventh and Templeton made that lead hold up as Madison Central (15-8)  defeated Lafayette, 5-4.

The Indians had only seven hits, but took advantage of three Lafayette errors.

Jimmy Wright was 2-for-4, Nick Kavanaugh was 2-for-3 with a run scored and Chris Well was 1-for-1 with an RBI and scored three times.

Josh Wright also had a triple and Ben Morin had a hit.

Central scored twice in the second, but Lafayette took the lead with a four-run fourth inning. The Indians  tied the game in the fifth with a pair of runs.

Sexton, a freshman, started and went four innings, allowing four runs on eight hits with one walk.

“I was really proud of him,” Central coach Steve Roof said of Sexton. “I thought he did a really good job.”

Templeton pitched the final three innings, allowing only two hits while striking out one.

In the second inning, Kavanaugh singled and scored on a triple by Wells, who later scored on an error.

In the fourth, Wells and Richardson were both hit by pitches. Wells came around to score on a balk and Richardson scored on an error.

The win was the second of the season for the Indians over the Generals. Central defeated Lafayette, 4-1, April 20th in Richmond.

The Indians are set to return to action Friday at home against Bryan Station on Little League Night.

UK signee and Kentucky Mr. Basketball Dominique Hawkins will  throw out the first pitch and be available to sign autographs.
