BASEBALL: Red Devils beat South in regular-season finale 9-5

JEFFERSONVILLE –  Jeffersonville concluded its regular season last Saturday at Don Poole Field with a 9-5 victory over Bloomington South.
The game was originally scheduled to be a part of a split doubleheader for the Red Devils (15-8) in Bloomington between both Bloomington South and Bloomington North. But because of rain, Jeff and South decided to move their game to Poole Field, with the Panthers as the home team on the scoreboard. The Red Devils’ contest with Bloomington North was canceled.
Sophomore Drew Taylor led Jeff at the plate, going 3-for-4 with two doubles and three runs scored. Teammate Hunter Schmitz was 3-for-4 with a run scored and an RBI.
Red Devil starter Gabe Bierman went 2-for-3 with two runs scored, while Jeff sophomore Jack Ellis was 2-for-4 with a home run, five RBIs and a run scored. Teammate Jacob Cochrum ended up 2-for-4 with a double and a run scored.
Bierman got the win on the mound. In three innings, the junior yielded three runs (all earned) on six hits with three strikeouts and no walks.
Cochrum relieved Bierman in the fourth inning and pitched three scoreless frames. Cochrum gave up two hits and no walks while striking out two.
