HHC ROUNDUP: Meyer shuts down Cubs, leads Jeff to title game

Floyd tennis beats Owls 5-0 for championship berth

JEFFERSONVILLE —  Jeffersonville pitcher Mark Meyer pitched a three-hit shutout to lead the Red Devils to an eight-inning, 1-0 victory over Madison on Wednesday. The win is the Devils’ 10th straight and sends them into the Hoosier Hills Conference championship.

Jeff will host Floyd Central — an 8-0 winner over Seymour — on Friday at 6 p.m.

Meyer went the distance and struck out three. Madison loaded the bases in the first inning with two hits and a walk, but Meyer pitched his way out of the jam. Meyer retired 17 of the last 18 batters he faced.

Jeff didn’t get a hit against Madison’s Clark Vaughn until the bottom of the seventh when Casey Gibson doubled. In the bottom of the eighth, Chandler Dale walked with one out before giving way to pinch runner Miah Phelps. With two outs, Nolan Fertig’s line-drive single to right field scored Phelps for the run and the win.

• Dogs fall to East: Columbus East scored five runs in the fifth to beat New Albany 5-4 in the consolation bracket.

Jack Shine went 2 for 4 with a pair of RBIs for the Bulldogs. Tucker Marcum and Garrett Sherrell each had two hits and A.J. Nixon had a pair of RBIs for New Albany.

NEXT: New Albany (15-6) at Jennings County or Bedford, Friday.
