Late rally lifts Lawrence Central over Columbus North in baseball
April 27, 2011Columbus North High School
Junior Hunter McIntosh went 2-for-2 with three RBIs and senior Will Nelson had a three-run home run to pace the Bull Dogs, but it wasn't enough as they fell to 7-2 overall and 1-2 in Conference Indiana.
Trailing 8-3 after three innings, Nelson's homer drew the visitors within two and Columbus North took a 10-8 lead with four runs in the sixth.
The Bears, however, started the bottom of the seventh with a hit batsman and a walk off sophomore reliever Daniel Ayres, who had struck out four and allowed just one hit over three-plus innings.
Senior Adam Jones came on for Ayres and hit the first batter he faced to load the bases. Jones then induced a chopper back to himself for a forceout at the plate and struck out Bryan Davidson. But Smith, after fouling off a pitch on a 3-2 count, laced a shot to right-center field that brought home three runs to end the game.
Junior C.J. Dennis went 2-for-4 with a double and two RBIs for Columbus North. Senior Blake Lane contributed a 2-for-3 effort, while sophomore Dennis Brumfield and junior Mickey Bell also went 2-for-4.
Brandon Krieg, Brandon Wind and Chris Ferguson hit third-inning home runs for Lawrence Central, helping stake the Bears to the 8-3 advantage.
Columbus North returns to action at 5 p.m. Wednesday (April 27) when it hosts Pike in another Conference Indiana game. The Bull Dogs follow by hosting Seymour at 5 p.m. Friday (April 29) and Greensburg in a doubleheader at 10 a.m. Saturday (April 30).
