North shuts out rival Corydon Central, 10-0
North Harrison senior Zach Janes struck out nine, walked none and surrendered just two hits in a 10-0 shutout of rival Corydon Central on Monday afternoon.
The Cougars (7-2) got all the runs they’d need in the opening frame against the homestanding Panthers (2-7).
Troy Eveslage, Brenden Zellers, Zach Janes and Kyle Whittinghill all singled off David Camp, with Whittinghill’s base knock driving in two runs.
Visiting North struck again in the top of the fourth.
Jim Bob Schuler and Eveslage singled and Zellers reached on an error, allowing Schuler to score. Janes helped his own cause with a two-run double.
In the fifth, Jon Knight walked and Schuler reached on a fielder’s choice before Zellers cleared the bases with a home run.
‘Zach gave us a strong performance on the mound. We left some runners on base in the early innings but responded with a good 4th and 5th inning,’ North coach Danny Schmidt said.
The Panthers took on Providence yesterday, then host Silver Creek in a Mid-Southern Conference matchup tomorrow (Thursday) and travel to Springs Valley on Saturday for a double-header.
North Harrison battled Jeffersonville yesterday, then travels to Providence today at 5 before returning to league play with a 5 p.m. home game against Salem on Thursday.
