McCutcheon sweeps Jeff Baseball Team with pitching, hitting

May 1, 2012
Lafayette Jefferson High School



McCutcheon showed off its offensive and defensive versatility while sweeping Lafayette Jeff 5-1 and 9-0 Saturday.

Christian Vukas limited the Bronchos to four hits in Game 1. Serving as the visiting team in Game 2, the Mavericks (9-3, 5-1 Hoosier Crossroads Conference) scored seven runs in the first inning.

"It's important for us to keep winning because we're chasing some teams right now," McCutcheon coach Jake Burton said. "I thought our kids played pretty well. Jeff threw Peter Ripke at us in the first game and he threw pretty well, but I think they may have run out of pitching in the second game."

The Mavericks erased a 1-0 deficit with a pair of runs in the first and second innings of Game 1. Jordan Young singled home Logan Sowers, and a wild pitch plated Henry Gray in the first inning.

Cody Strong's sacrifice fly scored Zach Tippy, and Gray's double drove home Justin Curry in the second inning to put the Mavericks up by three.

Jeff (7-7, 2-4) had its best chance to rally in the sixth inning. Reid Pittard reached on an infield single, and Ripke doubled to left with one out. After Vukas struck out Keaton Hamilton, he walked Griff Clark to load the bases.

Vukas enticed Daniel Nelson to hit into a fielder's choice at second base to end the threat.

"I was glad to get out of that inning," said Vukas, who recorded nine strikeouts over seven innings. "Tippy had a real nice stretch there at second base. We're playing well and playing good defense. It's all we can ask for right now. All we have to do now is execute."

The Mavericks added an insurance run in the bottom of the sixth when pinch runner Dylan Kiracofe scored on a Ripke wild pitch with two outs.

Lafayette Jeff coach Scott McTaggert said he believed the Bronchos' failure to execute some of baseball's basics cost them Game 1.

"I felt we were in the game the whole time but when we gave up those runs early it makes it hard," he said. "You're behind all the time, and it makes it difficult to come back."

Eleven batters came to the plate for McCutcheon in the first inning of Game 2. All seven runs scored after Jeff starting pitcher Eli Ledman got the first two batters out.

Things quickly unraveled when Gray walked and scored on a Vukas single to center. Ledman then hit Young, and Tippy drove two runs in with a single. After another walk, Mason Bruce drove home two more runs with a single.

After Kiracofe was hit by a pitch, Strong added the third two-run hit of the inning with a single to left.

"I thought the momentum of the first game carried over," Burton said. "I thought we played very tough with two outs. That was important for to have that happen. We were also very happy with our pitching in the second game."

Mike Smith, Kyle Brewer and Gray combined for the five-hit shutout.

The losses overshadowed the effort by Ripke, who held the Mavericks to one run over the last three innings to keep his team close in Game 1. At the plate, he went 4-for-7 for the day with two extra-base hits.

"But you can't win a game with one person," McTaggert said. "We have to find somebody else to hit the ball."
