No. 2 Dragons continue to roll with 22-1 win over Southwestern

JEFFERSONVILLE — The Jeffersonville bats are suddenly alive.

After taking a couple of losses with a quiet offense, the Class 4A No. 3 Red Devil baseball team scored 14 runs in a five-inning 14-4 win over Jennings County on Thursday before beating Castle 12-1 in five innings on Friday.

Sophomore Drew Campbell went 2-for-4 with two runs and hit a two-run home run in the fifth to invoke the “mercy rule” on consecutive nights.

Jeffersonville belted 12 hits, including 10 singles, and seven different Red Devils had at least one hit. Campbell, Drew Ellis, Chandler Dale and Nolan Fertig — Thursday’s batting star — had two hits apiece. Fertig knocked in three runs and Miah Phelps, Dale and Fertig each scored a pair of runs in the victory.

The Jeff pitching also has been solid. On Friday, Ellis allowed just one hit — a single to Wyatt Daly in the fourth — in five innings. He struck out seven Knights and walked just two.
