Perry Central outslugs Cannelton

-A A +A

CANNELTON—Anthony Mosby went 3 for 5 with a home run as Perry Central beat Cannelton 13-11 in baseball Monday.

Mosby was also the winning pitcher in relief, raising his record to 2-0. Perry Central starter Austin Linne breezed through the first two innings and took an 8-0 lead into the third. But he had control problems in the third as the Bulldogs scored 10 runs to take the lead. Mosby relieved him and also struggled that inning but settled down and gave up only one run in the last four innings. Linne and Mosby combined to walk 10 and hit one batter. “Their hitters were disciplined at the plate and made us throw strikes, and we didn’t do a very good job of that,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers. The Commodores made up for it with their bats, though, as they had 18 hits. Tanner Cassidy hit two doubles and a single and drove in three runs. Michael Landers and Mosby, the eighth and ninth hitters in their batting order, each also had three hits. Payton Thompson, Bryce Ridener and Trey Mullis each added two hits. The Commodores scored three runs in the fourth to regain the lead 11-10. Mosby started that rally with a single and Cassidy hit a double that inning. Mosby capped the Commodores’ scoring with a two-run homer over the left-field fence in the fifth inning. It followed a single by Landers. Ridener and Alton Cummings each also had two RBIs for the game. Hunter Herzog went 2 for 4 to lead Cannelton’s eight-hit attack. Brandon Cook hit a three-run triple for the Bulldogs in the third inning. Larry Holman added a double in the second. Tristan Simmons and Holman pitched for Cannelton, combining to walk six, strike out nine, and hit three batters. Simmons took the loss.
