-A A +A

PAOLI—Perry Central scored two runs in the seventh inning to beat Paoli 5-4 in baseball Monday.
The Commodores trailed 4-3 entering the top of the seventh.
With one out, Anthony Mosby walked. Trey Mullis followed with a double, but Mosby was thrown out at home on the play for the second out.
Alton Cummings singled home Mullis, though, to tie the score.
Cummings took second on the throw home and scored the go-ahead run on a single by Bryce Ridener.
Perry Central reliever Tanner Cassidy then struck out the side in the bottom of the seventh to save the win for Anthony Mosby.
Mosby pitched the first six innings, giving up four hits and no walks and striking out six.
“He threw a really good game,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers.
Ridener went 2 for 4 to lead Perry Central’s eight-hit attack.
Andrew Mosby led off the game with a home run and Zach Wright drove in two runs with a double with two outs in the sixth inning.
Wright’s double tied the score 3-3, but Paoli scored one run in the bottom of the sixth to regain the lead.
Perry Central had only four hits in a 4-1 home loss to Wood Memorial Friday.
The Trojans scored all their runs in the first two innings against Perry Central starter Austin Linne.
“He had a rough start—he threw 72 pitches in the first two innings,” said Zellers. “But he settled down and pitched well after that.”
Linne gave up six hits and four walks and struck out six in 62⁄3 innings.
No one had more than one hit for the Commodores. They scored their run in the sixth inning on a double by Andrew Mosby and a single by Anthony Mosby.
“We didn’t strike out as much (only two times), but we hit a lot of soft ground balls,” said Zellers.
Perry Central, 3-11, will visit Springs Valley today at 4:30 p.m.
