April 06, 2004

Burgin's offense got untracked in its second game at the 12th Region All "A" Classic as the Bulldogs used a 12-hit attack to defeat Monticello 10-0 in five innings Tuesday at Admiral Field.

Joe Harris hit his first career home run and was one of four players with two hits each for Burgin (1-3).

"It got warmer, and our bats lit up a little bit today," Burgin coach Terry Pitman said.

The Bulldogs got 24 hits in their two All "A" games Tuesday. Hours before beating Monticello, they lost 10-5 to Danville in the first game of the four-team round-robin tournament.

Also Tuesday, Somerset defeated Monticello 19-0 in five innings.

The tournament concludes today with two games each for Somerset and Danville and one each for Burgin and Monticello.

Josh Carey earned the win in Burgin's first victory of the season, holding Monticello (0-5) to three hits, striking out 12 batters and walking none.


Harris' two-run homer was one of four extra-base hits for Burgin. Harris, Daniel Howard, Zack Gross and Jordan Darland had two hits each; Carey, Ben Miller, Sean Bottoms and Evan Mobley had one each.

Bottoms also stole two bases.

Boyle County 8, Clarksville (Ind.) Providence 3 - At Louisville, home runs by Brad Cloud and Tyler Morris highlighted a five-run third inning that lifted Boyle (4-1) over Providence (5-1), the No. 3 team in Indiana's Class 2A.

Cloud's grand slam and Morris' solo homer gave the Rebels a 5-1 lead. They put the game on ice with three more runs in the sixth inning, which featured a two-run single by Andrew Bertram.

Bertram also earned a complete-game win, scattering eight hits and three walks and striking out five.

"We played the best game we've played all year," Boyle coach David Camic said.

Andrew West, Phillip Dean and Jamie Robinson had singles for Boyle, which plays Doss today and Southern on Wednesday to complete its four-team pool at Southern.

Lincoln County plays in the same tournament later this week, though in a different pool.
