Visiting Terre Haute South erupted for 13 runs in the first game of a high school baseball doubleheader Saturday at Plainfield, but was held to just one in the nightcap.
The result was a split, the Braves winning 13-6 and losing 6-1.
Max Scamihorn was 3 for 5 with five RBI and also pitched the last two innings to get a save for the Braves, while winning pitcher Caleb Stultz allowed just two earned runs while striking out nine in five innings and also going 2 for 2 at the plate in the first game.
Also for South, Jacob Rutledge was 2 for 4 with a double and two RBI; Tucker Helton 2 for 5 with a double; Ayden Macke 1 for 3 with a double and two RBI; Caleb Morris 1 for 4 with a double, two runs and two RBI; and Kade Kline scored twice.
Rutledge was 3 for 5 in the second game, but that was half the hits for the 2-2 Braves. Kline was 1 for 2 with a double and Stultz and Helton had singles.
