Harrison baseball hammers Lafayette Jeff

April 22, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



Harrison’s Jeep Morehouse wasn’t sure what had happened in his last at-bat against Lafayette Jeff on Monday night at Raider Field.

It didn’t take him long, however, to break into the home-run trot.

Morehouse’s home run was a walkoff, giving Harrison a 12-2 five-inning victory over the Bronchos in a Hoosier Crossroads Conference game.

“At first, I didn’t know it was gone,” Morehouse said. “I thought it was a double or a triple. Then, I just looked over and everybody was cheering. I was overjoyed.

“This was my first walkoff and it was tremendous.”

Morehouse wasn’t the only Raider who swung the bat well against Jefferson (6-3). Harrison pounded out 12 hits, including two triples and two doubles. Rhett Baxter led the way with a triple, a double and four RBIs. Jacob Chase and Carter Bridge added doubles and Jake Fernung a triple.

The Raiders did most of their damage against Broncho freshman Chandler Ferguson, who brought a 2-0 mark into the game, including a three-hit victory with 11 strikeouts against Zionsville. He lasted 31/3 innings, giving up eight runs on eight hits.

“I think we were ready for him,” Baxter said. “We heard about him after his three-hitter against Zionsville. I knew we had to come out ready. He is good.”

“This is the first time we have brought him back on only three days rest,” Lafayette Jeff coach Scott McTagertt said. “We are still learning what he can do. I think that probably four days rest will be key for now. But Harrison swung the bat really well tonight. They hit in big situations with guys on base, and that is what we did not do.”

Baxter’s bases-loaded triple down the right-field line in the third inning broke open a close game. Lafayette Jeff had taken a 1-0 lead in the second and Harrison tied it at 1-1 in the third when Fernung singled, driving in Matthew Roop. Carter Bridge singled to load the bases, bringing Baxter to the plate. He drove a ball just inside the line in right field to clear the bases and give the Raiders a 4-1 lead.

“When I saw the ball come out of his hand, I knew it was going to be outside,” Baxter said. “I just threw my hands out there and it just happened to go down the right-field line. It was really curving.”

Chase then singled Baxter home with the Raiders’ fifth run of the inning. The Bronchos responded with a run in the fourth when Jeremy Griggs singled to lead off and scored on Alex Kauffman’s groundout to first.

Harrison (6-5) wasn’t done, adding six more runs in the fourth and chasing Ferguson after Fernung’s triple to right to make it 7-2. Harrison had six hits in the inning, including a triple and doubles by Baxter and Chase.

Jordan Doyle, who gave up only four hits, didn’t allow the Bronchos to score in the top of the fifth, setting up Morehouse’s dramatic home run to lead off the bottom of the fifth.

“It is always nice to win games like this and have a little fun,” Harrison coach Pat Lowery said. “I was impressed with our situational hitting tonight. The kids understood that it didn’t take a double or a home run to drive at runner in.”

The teams play again Tuesday at 6 p.m. at Loeb Stadium.
