Terre Haute North sweeps MIC doubleheader against Ben Davis

TERRE HAUTE — Terre Haute North is off to a winning start in Metropolitan Interscholastic Conference baseball.

The Patriots are 2-0  in the league by virtue of defeating Ben Davis twice on Saturday at Art Nehf Field at Rose-Hulman by scores of 6-4 and 18-8 in the season opener for both teams.

North plated three runs in the sixth inning to rally to win  the first game, then tallied six runs in the top half of the fourth frame of the nightcap that ended after six innings due to the 10-run rule.

North coach Shawn Turner was pleased with the sweep.

“The first day you know you are going to have mistakes. I thought overall our players did a good job of picking up pitchers when they struggled and pitchers did a good job of picking up their tempo when we weren’t hitting the ball,” he said following the contest.

“The first game was a little lackluster and the second game we put it in overdrive and really had a nice day. And the weather was good. That was a bonus,” he added.

Ben Davis scored three runs in the fifth inning of the opener to take a 4-2 lead.

North cut the deficit to one run in the bottom of the fifth and won it with the three-run sixth, scoring the three runs with two outs.

Gabe Sevigny singled to start the rally. Lane Dransfield and MacKenzie  Minger then both reached on errors — the only miscues by either team in the first game.

Sevigny and Dransfield both came home on the error by the Ben Davis catcher, dropping a third strike and making a bad throw to first base, to put the Patriots ahead 5-4.

Minger scored  the final run on a single by Jonathan Eilbracht.

Pitchers for the two teams issued a combined 21 walks in the second game and North took advantage of four in their six-run inning and assumed a 9-5 lead.

A grand-slam homer by T. J. Collett was the big blow in the frame.

Sam Wolf had a two-run homer in the fifth stanza and socked a double in North’s seven-run sixth inning as the Patriots went up 18-7.

Ben Davis scored a run in the bottom of the sixth but left the bases loaded as Sevigny got the second and third batters in the Ben Davis order to pop up and fly out to end the contest.

Sevigny had two hits and scored twice in the first game and had one hit in the nightcap.

Collett and Wolf each had three hits in the second game and combined to drive in 11 runs. Eilbracht and Nathan Will each had two hits and Dransfield and Zach Milam each rapped doubles.

Tristan Pate worked two innings to get the mound win in the  first game and Cody Maloon got a save. Greg Hannum was the winning pitcher in the second game, working 2 2/3 innings.

The Patriots will be busy this week, weather permitting. They are slated to play at Shakamak on Monday and at Sullivan on Tuesday and will meet Gary West, McCutcheon and Lafayette Harrison in a tournament Friday and Saturday with the games to be played at Loeb Field in Lafayette and McCutcheon.

“We’ll see where we go from here,” said coach Turner.

Terre Haute North also defeated Ben Davis 14-4 in a junior varsity game played at North.
