PREP BASEBALL: Hot Minutemen run-rule Goshen

GOSHEN — While the temperature was dropping quickly, Concord’s Minutemen were sizzling instantly Friday at Phend Field.

The baseball Minutemen ran their winning streak to 10 games with an 11-1 Northern Lakes Conference triumph over a Goshen team which won at Concord a couple weeks ago.

Seniors Mason Eldridge and Dakota Simon both drove in three runs for the Minutemen who are now 15-3 overall and 9-3 in the league. They visit No. 1-ranked Elkhart Central today.

“We scored seven of our 11 runs with two out,” said CHS coach Jim Treadway. “We have been doing things like that all year and I feel like we have no holes in our lineup right now.”

Senior right hander Cain Crowley was beneficiary of all the batting support. He wound up with a four-hitter, striking out six and walking one.

“Crowley threw the ball well for them,” said Redskin coach Hal Farmwald. “We got them at their place, but they came out with a lot of energy and enthusiasm in this game. It just takes a few plays here and there for a game to get away from you.”

Goshen, 7-14 overall and 4-8 in the NLC, hosts Angola in a “Senior Day” outing at 11 this morning. Seniors players to be honored, along with their parents, before the game are Austin Henke, Sylas Buller, Travis Pickard, Cody Smith, Luke Harris, Tyler Slagel, Jake Jesse and Kyle Taylor.

The Redskins’ only run against Crowley and the Minutemen came on a long home run to left center field by Slagel with one out in the bottom of the first inning.

Buller, Taylor and junior Deric Haynes singled for Goshen’s other safeties.

Senior Matt Kotva had an RBI single in the first inning for Concord and the Minutemen broke it open with seven tallies in the third.

Eldridge cracked a three-run double in the inning, Simon and Kotva RBI doubles and senior Connor Slabach a sacrifice fly.

Eldridge, playing center field, also made the defensive play of the game when he chased down a long drive by Haynes in the third inning.

Simon belted a two-run homer for Concord in the fifth and that enabled the Minutemen to finish the game early on the 10-run rule.

“We’re playing well and I really like our chances going into the sectional, even though it’s a tough one,” said Treadway.

That Class 4A sectional at Elkhart Memorial also includes Central and NLC leader Northridge. The tournament is May 25 and 27.

“We have five home games next week and seem to be peaking at the right time,” said Treadway. “We had a couple of stumbles against Goshen and NorthWood, but our pitching and defense have come around since then.”
