Ben Fisher delivered another solid performance as the Madison Central baseball team picked up another victory. Fisher, a freshman, went 6 2/3 innings and allowed only one run on four hits while striking out four as the Indians (18-6) defeated Bryan Station (11-9), 4-1, Tuesday in Lexington. The victory stretches Central’s winning streak to six games. “He did a real good job,” Central coach Steve Roof said of Fisher. Fisher picked up the win, his third of the season, while Zach Harmon earned the save, his third of the season, by getting the final two outs. Central scored two runs in the first inning, then added one more run in the fourth and sixth innings. Isaac Smith led the Indian offense, going 3-for-4 with two stolen bases. Jon McQuarter was 2-for-3 with an RBI. In the first inning, Harmon walked, Smith singled, Cole Metcalfe drove in a run on a fielder’s choice and another run scored when Austin Hunt reached on an error. In the fourth, Alex Dapkus doubled and advanced to third on a wild pitch. He later scored on a bunt single by McQuarter. In the sixth, Skylar Trott and McQuarter both singled and Harmon drove in a run with a groundout. Station’s only run came in the seventh inning. The Indians are won seven of their 10 games against 11th Region competition so far this season. Central is set to return to action Friday at home against Western Hills.
