Big fourth inning propels Terre Haute South

TERRE HAUTE — Terre Haute South defeated Northview in Big Four baseball action Monday evening 9-3 in summerlike conditions at the South diamond.

The Braves improved to 16-5 for the season and finished second in Big Four games with a 2-1 mark.

South trailed the Knights 3-1 after three innings but scored six runs in the fourth to assume control of the contest and added single tallies in the fifth and sixth frames while holding Northview scoreless.

Junior Conner Shipley got the start — his first of the season — and got the win, going four innings and pitching to one batter in the fifth.

Mitch Clinkenbeard worked the final three innings to earn a save. He gave up one hit in the seventh inning.

South took a 1-0 lead in the second when Northview starter Tucker Stewart hit two batters and walked one after retiring the first two batters on groundouts.

Northview scored all of its runs in the third when the first three batters rapped out singles. Bo Stewart and Jake Harden drove in two of the runs and the third scored on a wild pitch.

Shipley beat out an infield hit with one out to get the South five-run fourth started. Trey McCue and Jacob Johnson followed with singles and Jared Wolfe doubled to drive in two of the runs.

Kyle Moore relieved Stewart, facing Justin Jenkins, who reached first on catcher’s interference. Then Austin Slover cracked his fourth homer of the season to up South’s run total to six for the game.

Johnson and Clinkenbeard drove in the last two runs for the winners.

Slover went 3 for 3 with his homer and a double to pace the South offense. Wolfe’s double was the only other extra-base hit of the contest.

Johnson and Shipley each had a pair of hits and Johnson drove in two runs.

Tucker Stewart, Connor Ganly and Bo Stewart all had two hits for the Knights, now 9-10 for the season. They have a Western Indiana Conference game today at South Vermilion.

“Shipley struggled with location … he gave us four innings and kept us in the game. Mitchell came in and threw strikes for a lot of groundouts,” South coach Kyle Kraemer said following the game.

The Braves now have a short time off after playing four games in five days. “It’s a grind, mentally and emotionally,” said the coach.

South will be back in action Thursday, entertaining Sullivan, and then will face Center Grove in Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference action.
