METRO ROUNDUP: Vikings’ Thornton on All-Star team

TERRE HAUTE — West Vigo’s Cody Thornton has been selected by the Indiana Baseball Coaches Association to play in the annual North-South All-Star Series next month.

A four-year starter for the Vikings, Thornton batted .455 his senior year with four doubles, a triple and five homers. In 30 games, he scored 38 runs and drove in 54, just two shy of the West Vigo school record held by Lenny LeClerq.

He was the starting right fielder for West Vigo’s Class 3A state runner-up team in 2009 and is currently playing American Legion baseball for Wayne Newton Post 346.

The all-star series will be at Jasper this year, the weekend of July 13-15.

• Cavemen 5-5, Rex 4-4 — At Hannibal, Mo., the Terre Haute Rex lost a pair of seven-inning Prospect League games by identical scores Sunday night.

A rainout on Saturday caused the doubleheader to be played.

Nick Johnson, Kyle Kempf and Mike Schroeder had six of the seven Terre Haute hits in the first game Sunday. After falling behind 4-0 and 5-1, the Rex pulled within two runs on Schroeder’s two-run homer in the sixth inning and got within one when Kempf got his second RBI in the top of the seventh.

Schroeder added two doubles in the second game, with Blake Norwood adding two hits and Norwood, Jacob Hayes and Edmond Cheatham each getting a double, but the Rex couldn’t score in the last three innings after taking a 4-3 lead in the top of the fourth.

After a day off Monday, Terre Haute’s eight-game road trip continues today with the first of two games at Springfield — the Rex’s second trip to Robin Roberts Field in less than a week.
