HIGH SCHOOL ROUNDUP: Charlestown baseball dominates Switzerland County


Charlestown only needed 10 innings to win two games at Switzerland County on Saturday, thanks to two excellent all-around team perfornances. 

“We’re excited about today,” Charlestown coach Ricky Romans said. “Like I told the kids, we came out today and played real well offensively. Most importantly, we were really sound on the bases today. We were aggressive like we like to be.”

In Game 1, Charlestown pitcher Tregg Scherer threw a no-hit shutout in a 13-0 victory, striking out seven Pacers and walking just two. 

“We got great pitching performances today,” said Romans, who added that Scherer’s no-hitter was the first since Romans became the Charlestown coach.

Ryan Gorbandt provided some offensive firepower for the Pirates, going 3-for-3 with three runs scored and two runs batted in. 

In Game 2, Darren Taylor allowed just one earned run in a 13-3 victory. 

Creighton Rudolph led the offense with a 3-for-3 day, two RBI and two runs scored. Rudolph and Gorbandt had a double apiece in the contest. 

Charlestown (10-4) travels to Madison on Tuesday. 

• New Albany sweeps Reitz: New Albany improved to 12-2 with two wins over Evansville Reitz on Saturday at Mt. Tabor Field. 

The Bulldogs took the first game 7-3 and the second 11-1 in six innings. 

“Our pitching was really good today and we had a lot of good at-bats,” New Albany coach Chris McIntyre said. “This is the best we have played offensively since the first week of the season.” 

Logan Striegel and Jordan Striegel each knocked in two runs in the early game. Logan Striegel was 2-for-4 at the plate. 

Josh Rogers collected the win in Game 1, going six innings and allowing just one hit. He struck out 11 batters and walked three, gving up just one earned run. 

In Game 2, Logan Striegel struck again, going 2-for-3, while Zach Worrall was 2-for-3 with two RBI. Brady Parr hit a home run.
