HIGHSCHOOL BASEBALL: Central recovers with massive revenue | Sports activities
The Indians (15-3) had just five hits on Tuesday night and received a 10-4 loss on the road from the Lexington Christian Academy.
This setback sparked Madison Central’s five-game winning streak.
However, the Indians had a chance to get back on the track less than 24 hours later when one of their greatest rivals entered Don Richardson Field.
And that’s exactly what they did.
“We could have sat here and complained about last night,” said Central Senior Nate Storie. “But we all kind of pulled ourselves together and played our game.”
The Indians had 10 hits, including six extra-base hits, and beat Scott County 11-2 (7-8) in Richmond.
Storie and Brandon Anderson, both Homer and Central, used a second inning seven times to close an early deficit and take control.
Bradley Poynter started and took six innings to take the win. He allowed only four hits, two runs and a walk with five strikeouts.
Mason Bryant threw the final inning and did not allow a hit.
Scott County scored two runs in the first run before the Indians responded.
At the end of the second, Matt Bryan doubled in and hit on an Aiden Carter single. Luke Coleman had an RBI single, then Hayden Robbins delivered a triple with two runs to give Central a 5-2 lead.
Anderson struck Scott County starter Zane Patton in the first inning.
“I missed 2-0 on my first stroke,” said Anderson. “I was pretty upset about that. So, in first place in the next bat game, he gave me a good punch and I got it. “
The left-hander shot a shot over the right field fence for his fourth home run of the season.
Storie laid down a motley sacrifice in his first strike.
Next time the senior knew exactly what he was looking for.
“I just thought, ‘Hit the fastball. Hit the fastball. ‘I didn’t mean to hit his curveball,’ said Storie. “He threw me a fastball and I tried to hit him as hard as possible.”
The solo shot on the left field was Stories first university home run.
Carter added an RBI single in the fifth and Central received RBI groundouts from Bryce Snapp and John Girard in the sixth.
Bryan was 2-3 with two doubles and scored two goals. Robbins was 2-3 with a triple, double, two RBI and scored once.
Carter was 2-3 with two RBIs and scored once. Coleman was 2-1 with a walk, two RBIs and scored once.
The Indians will be back in action on Friday at home against Anderson County (10-5).
However, they know that they will have a very good time to see Scott County again this season.
“We always draw them in the region,” said Anderson. “Well, I’m sure we’ll see you again.”
