DUBOIS - Perry Central's baseball team hit three home runs as it beat Barr-Reeve 12-2 in the Northeast Dubois Classic Saturday.

Bo Gibson hit a two-run shot in the first inning, Clint Schank hit a solo shot in the fourth inning, and Wes Linette added a three-run blast later that inning.

The Commodores' 10-hit attack also included two doubles by Austin Hauser, who drove in two runs. Gibson and Linette each drove in three.

Perry Central batters did not strike out at all in the six-inning game.

Gibson pitched the first five innings to get the win, striking out five and walking three.

In Perry Central's other game in the classic, Northeast Dubois rallied for six runs in the fourth inning and five in the fifth to beat the Commodores 17-11.

Perry Central had 16 hits that game but the Jeeps had 21.

Gibson went 4 for 5 to lead the Commodores, including a solo homer in the third inning.

Ryan Hanan added three hits, and he and Hauser each drove in three runs.

Four Perry Central pitchers combined to give up seven walks. The Commodores also committed four errors.

Perry Central lost a road game to Boonville 15-3 Tuesday, as the Pioneers had eight extra-base hits.

"They hit the ball very well," said Perry Central Coach Ty Guillaume. "In the first two innings our pitchers left the ball up high."

Gibson homered for Perry Central for the fourth consecutive game, hitting a three-run shot over the left-field fence in the first inning.

Linette added a triple, Hanan hit a double, and Ian Hahus went 2 for 2.
