CORYDON—Perry Central scored five runs in the seventh inning to beat Corydon 8-7 in baseball Tuesday.
The Commodores won despite being outhit 14-9 for the game and having no extra-base hits.
They had three hits in their big inning, a one-out single by Tanner Cassidy and RBI singles by Austin Linne and Alton Cummings after a walk to Andrew Mosby.
After Michael Landers walked to load the bases, the final three runs scored as Payton Thompson reached base on an error by the second baseman and “they threw it around some,” said Perry Central Coach Phil Zellers.
Cassidy, Trey Mullis and Thompson each had two hits for Perry Central. Thompson drove in two runs.
Anthony Mosby got the win with 31⁄3 innings of relief. He walked three and struck out one.
Cassidy got the last two outs to record a save.
“Defensively we’re still not there yet,” said Cassidy. “We’re letting too many pop flies drop in.”
On Saturday, Perry’s opponent had the big seventh inning to break open a close game.
Orleans scored nine runs in that inning to beat Perry Central 13-2 in PLAC baseball Saturday.
Perry Central trailed only 4-2 entering the seventh. But Orleans amassed nine hits that inning against Perry Central reliever Cummings. The Bulldogs also took advantage of two Perry Central errors that inning.
Cassidy pitched the first six innings for Perry Central. He scattered eight hits and one walk and struck out 11.
“Tanner threw a good game,” said Zellers. “We’ve got some work to do with our relief pitchers, though. This early in the season our starters aren’t going to be able to go the distance.
“Alton threw strikes, but we’ve got to work on location.”
The Commodores also need more offense. For the second game in a row they had only three singles, by three different batters.
Perry Central, 1-2, will host North Posey Saturday at 11 a.m.
