Talcott helps McCutcheon baseball blank Lafayette Jeff

April 27, 2014
Lafayette Jefferson High School



The early pressure situation McCutcheon pitcher Walter Talcott faced Friday night against Lafayette Jeff increased his focus.

The junior would prefer to avoid similar circumstances in the future.

The right-hander escaped a second-inning jam and cruised the rest of the way as the Mavericks posted a 10-0 victory over the Bronchos in Hoosier Crossroads Conference action at Loeb Stadium.

“The pressure does help me out a little bit, but I would rather keep people off the base,” said Talcott, who improved to 2-0.

The second inning was Talcott’s only concern. He allowed a leadoff single to catcher Joe House and walked pitcher Jeremy Griggs, but proceeded to strike out Alec Beaver, Tristan Brown and Chandler Ferguson to end the threat.

In a scoreless game, that moment provided the right spark because McCutcheon scored at least one run in each of the next five innings and collected 12 of its 13 hits.

“Those are crucial outs to get us out of that inning,” Mavs coach Jake Burton said. “We weren’t hitting the ball real well yet. He did a nice job and came back.”

Friday was Talcott’s second start of the season, but he demonstrated strong command of his breaking ball and the velocity on his fastball kept the Bronchos from mounting a serious challenge. He struck out nine and scattered five hits.

“I’ve always had pretty good command of that pitch,” Talcott said of his curveball. “It had quite a bit of movement.”

Talcott contributed a two-run single in the fourth, increasing the lead to 4-0. Junior Braden Giroux, senior Myles Hann and senior Jordan Young each added two hits, but the Mavericks also took advantage of five errors.

“Being young and everything else, the one thing we said coming into this season that we were going to be good at was defense. We haven’t done that once this year,” Jeff coach Scott McTagertt said. “We’re not wanting the ball hit to us — you can see it. We’re throwing the ball to the wrong place. You give a team that can hit five extra chances, I guarantee you you’re not going to win.”

By putting pressure on the defense, the Mavericks quickly corrected a flaw following Thursday’s 3-1 loss to Terre Haute North.

“We had 12 fly-ball outs (Thursday) and four strikeouts. That’s 16 outs you have to catch a fly ball and catch a third strike,” Burton said. “We hit the ball on the ground and made them make the play tonight.”
