Terre Haute North tops Sullivan, falls to Class A No. 1 Shakamak

TERRE HAUTE — Class A No. 1-ranked Shakamak got a big pitching performance and big hits from Braxton and Brett Yeryar Tuesday night while beating Terre Haute North 5-2 at Don Jennings Field.

North started the night with an 8-0 win over Sullivan, but could not come back to get a rare mid-week doubleheader sweep.

T.J. Collett hit his second and third homers of the season for the Patriots. North is now 2-2 on the season.

Shakamak’s Braxton Yeryar struck out eight and walked two before giving way to his brother Brett in the seventh inning.

After three scoreless innings, that included just one hit between the two teams, Shakamak took a 3-0 lead in the top of the fourth.

Brett Yeryar was hit by a pitch to lead off the inning and Kyler Fulford was hit by a pitch. Braxton Yeryar reached base on an infield hit, loading the bases. Braden Scott put down a perfect sacrifice bunt to score Brett Yeryar with the first run of the night.

With two Lakers still in scoring position, Jake Walters doubled down the left field line to score Fulford and Braxton Yeryar.

The Lakers made it 5-0 with two runs in the sixth inning. With one out Christian Burris reached base on an error and Braxton Yeryar and Scott received back-to-back walks to load the bases. Walters singled to bring in Burris and, with bases still loaded, Logan Kinnett received a walk to score the fifth run.

North finally got Shakamak’s Braxton Yeryar in the sixth inning. The Patriots scored two runs when Zach Milam received a one-out walk and Collett hit his third homer of the season to right field.

With the Lakers still leading 5-2, the Patriots loaded the bases, but Braxton Yeryar ended his night with a strikeout.

North scored its third and final run in the seventh when Nick Long led off with a single, stole second and scored on a base hit by Milam. With two out, Shakamak intentionally walk Collett and got the final out on a foul balls.

North’s Tony Smodilla, Austin Massey and Brandon Taylor combined to pitch a four-hit shutout against Sullivan. Smodilla pitched the first four innings to earn the win.

North scored three runs in the first inning and Collett made it 5-0 in the second with a two-run homer, his second of the season. The Patriots scored single runs in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings.
