SHAKAMAK 10, Clay City 1: In a rematch of last year’s Class 1A sectional championship game, the Lakers dominated. 


Jaxon Cox erased a 1-0 deficit with a 2-run home run in the top of the third inning and the Lakers never looked back in Friday night’s Southwestern Indiana Athletic Conference romp.


Shakamak tacked on three more runs in the fifth inning. Riley Huckaby made it 3-1 with an RBI single before Linden Jenkins belted a 2-run shot just two pitches later for a 5-1 lead.


Jalen and Jaden Johnson recorded RBI singles in the sixth before Cox capped a three-run seventh with an RBI double. Jalen Johnson recorded a 2-run single ahead of Cox’s two-bagger.


Jaden Johnson went the distance on the hill to earn the win. The sophomore scattered five hits and recorded four punchouts.


The Lakers pounded out 15 hits in the win as Jaden Johnson and Huckaby both wrapped out three hits.


Ian Samm recorded a double.


Shakamak, ranked No. 7 in the latest Class 1A state polls, improved to 10-6 on the season and 4-1 in conference play.




Vincennes Lincoln 4, Sullivan 3 (13): The Arrows have suffered their fair share of heartbreaks on the diamond over the last two seasons. Friday night was no different.


The Alices scored in the home half of the 13th inning on a throwing error to end the marathon contest.


The game nearly ended six innings prior. 


Sullivan was one strike away from a 3-1 victory, but Drew Hambrick lined a 2-run single to cap a 3-run seventh inning to force extra frames.


A walk to Ryder Pinkston and back-to-back singles by Isaak Osborne and Macus Roshel loaded the bases for the Arrows in the top of the eighth with just one out. But a pair of strikeouts ended the threat.


The Arrows had no major scoring chance the rest of the game.


Jaden Norris gave the visitors a 1-0 lead with an RBI double in the top of the fifth, scoring Roshel.


Osborne singled home Ben McKinley for a 2-0 lead in the sixth before Roshel scored on a wild pitch in the seventh.


A hit batter and two walks aided the Alices in their 3-run seventh inning.


The loss marked the fourth 1-run loss of the season for Sullivan, falling to 7-9 overall.


Before the Alices came to bat in the 13th, officials deemed it would be the last half inning of the contest regardless due to what happened due to an issue with the field lights.




Washington 10, North Knox 6: The Warriors fell behind 7-0 early and could not quite recover in the non-conference road loss Friday night.


North Knox battled back to within 7-6 after scoring four in the third and twice more in the fourth.


But the Hatchets pulled away with a single tally in the fifth and two more in the sixth.


Korbin Jones and Tyler Clark had run-scoring singles to highlight the Warriors’ third inning. Clark added another RBI single in the fourth which followed an RBI groundout by Kaleb Archer.


North Knox stranded a pair of runners in the sixth and one more in the seventh.


The loss dropped North Knox to 5-11 on the season.




South Vermillion 9, North Central 5: The T-Birds outhit South Vermillion, 10-8 but four errors led to four unearned runs which proved to be the difference Thursday night.


Greydyn Walters wrapped a 2-run double in the home half of the fifth and scored on a single by Hayden Schultz, pulling the T-Birds to within 7-5.


But the Wildcats added the final two tallies of the game in the sixth inning.


Ian Ladson drew a two-out walk ahead of a single by Kagen Taylor in the seventh, but a flyout ended the game and the T-Birds’ threat.


North Central also left a pair of runners on base in the sixth.


Walters and Taylor had a pair of hits apiece, while Gaven Simmons singled and drove home two runs in the loss.




North Knox 13, Wood Memorial 3 (5): Braxton Yenne, Levi Pahmeier and Korbin Jones all recorded three hits to pace the Warriors’ 13-hit attack in Thursday night’s Blue Chip Conference win.


North Knox scored the first 13 runs of the game, including five in the fourth inning, before the Trojans ended the shutout bid with three in the last of the fifth.


Yenne, Pahmeier, Jones (double) and Camden McCory all recorded run-scoring hits in part of the Warriors’ big fourth inning. McCory drove in two with a single which made it 11-0.


Pahmeier (4) and Jones (3) combined for seven RBI in the lopsided win.


Seven different North Knox batters recorded at least one hit. Eli Elkins recorded a double.


Yenne went the distance on the bump, scattered three hits and recorded five strikeouts.
