H.S. BASEBALL: Madison Central tops Montgomery County, 9-5

RICHMOND — In their final game before a trip to Florida for Spring Break, the Indians took care of business against Montgomery County Thursday at Don Richardson Field.

Madison Central overcame some sloppy defense to pick up a 9-5 win. The Indians scored twice in the first inning, then added five more runs in the second.

Central (4-2) used four pitchers and got offensive contributions from most of the lineup.

“We made some mistakes — and they are all correctable mistakes,” Central coach Steve Roof said. “So, we will go back to work. It’s still early in the season. We have a lot of upside. It’s like we are starting at the bottom and we are looking up.”

Jeremy Lakes started and went four strong innings. The junior allowed just one hit and issued no walks. Montgomery County got two runs off Lakes, both unearned.

Three other pitcher each worked one inning and each gave up a run.

Kyle Kelsey pitched the fifth, Austin Templeton worked the sixth and Zach Voll came on in the seventh to get the final three outs.

“It was good work. I thought the pitching staff did a good job,” Roof said. “We still need to improve on the defensive end. I thought our hitters did a good job as well. That’s all you can ask.”

The Indians took the lead in the bottom of the first inning and never trailed.

Ben Morin led-off with a triple and scored on a groundout by Joe Holbrook. Catcher Cory Mullins walked and moments later pinch runner Seth Richardson scored to put the Indians up 2-0.

In the second inning, Nick Kavanaugh reached on an infield single and scored. With two outs, three-straight Central batters were hit with pitches — Morin, Holbrook and Mullins. Josh Wright followed with a three-run triple that put Central up 7-1.

In the third, Morin added an RBI single that stretched the Indians’ lead to seven runs.

Jonah Kelsey and Morin both had two hits for Central.

The Indians are set to return to action Sunday at the Florida Beach Bash.
