HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: No. 4 Dragons move into first place in MSC

Silver Creek blanks No. 3 Cougars in 2-0 victory

> SOUTHERN INDIANA — The Silver Creek baseball team moved into a first-place tie with Class 3A No. 3 North Harrison in the Mid-Southern Conference on Thursday, beating the visiting Cougars 2-0.

The Class 3A No. 4 Dragons got a stellar outing from starting pitcher Lucas Barnett. Barnett pitched six scoreless innings, allowing three hits. He struck out nine and walked six. Silver Creek relief pitcher Shae Durham got the save by pitching a scoreless seventh inning.

The Dragons’ Jacob Armstrong and Jared Vest each went 2-for-3. Armstrong hit a solo home run over the right-center field fence in the third.

“It was good to see Jacob get a hold of one. He has been struggling a little lately,” Silver Creek assistant coach Scott Jennings said. “(Vest) is swinging the bat well right now. I also have to give credit to (Dragons’ catcher) Lucas McIntyre for a real good defensive job behind the plate.”

The Dragons (14-3) and North Harrison (14-3) are each currently 5-1 in the MSC. Silver Creek will host Madison in a doubleheader on Saturday.

• Hornets remain unbeaten in SAC: Henryville upped its Southern Athletic Conference record to 4-0 with an 11-2 victory at Borden.

The Hornets’ Cody Reister earned the win in a starting role. He gave up two runs (both earned) on five hits in a complete-game effort, striking out six. Reister also helped himself at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a double and three RBIs.

Henryville’s Dylan Collins and Joey Martin each went 2-for-4, with Collins driving in two runs.

“One of our goals is to win conference, so we had to be ready to play,” said Hornets’ head coach Jeff Schroeder, whose team can clinch the SAC championship outright on Saturday, May 19 when it hosts Class A No. 4 South Central in a doubleheader. “We got timely hits and made a couple of double plays.”

Borden’s Garrett Stephens was the losing pitcher. Henryville (8-8) will host Brownstown in a twinbill on Saturday. The Braves (3-10, 2-2 SAC) will travel to Crothersville for a doubleheader on Saturday.

• Scherer tosses one-hitter in Pirates’ win: Charlestown starting pitcher Tregg Scherer gave up one hit in a complete-game effort, leading the Pirates to a 10-1 victory at Austin.

Scherer pitched 5 1/3 innings of no-hit ball before giving up a one-out single in the sixth.

Bristol Frazier led the Charlestown offense, going 3-for-4. Also for the Pirates (13-5, 3-3 MSC), Jordan Hensley-Cole went 2-for-3 and Ryan Gorbandt and Taylor Pfohl each were 2-for-5.

“With it being a conference game, it was a good win,” Charlestown head coach Ricky Romans said. “Right now, we are out of the conference race. But anything can happen.”

The Pirates will visit Southwestern on Saturday for a doubleheader.

• Floyd Central falls at Seymour: Leading 3-2 in the bottom of the sixth, visiting Floyd Central gave up three runs and lost to Seymour, 5-3.

Highlanders’ pitcher Colton Kimm suffered the loss. Floyd Central (10-8) travels to Class 4A No. 6 Columbus North today.
