The Fishers Tigers JV Red team (7-10/3-6) defeated the Franklin Central Flashes by a score of 6-0 behind a complete game effort from Cam Plew. The Tigers offense also attacked as they collected 8 hits, including 3 doubles.
Plew only faced 24 batters throughout the game, as he allowed only 3 hits and 3 walks on the day. The final two outs of the game were Plew’s only two strikeouts of the day. The Tigers defense was strong behind Plew to help eliminate any scoring chances from the Flashes as the defense did not commit any errors. In the second inning, a Flashes runner singled but was later called out as the batter interfered with Kaden Gorak’s throw to 2nd on the attempted steal. In the 3rd inning, Gorak would throw out a runner who had walked to end the inning. Finally, in the 5th inning, the leadoff batter for Franklin Central singled and eventually reached 2nd base. However the next batter flew out to right fielder Jeffrey Simmons who threw a great ball to get the runner tagging and attempting to advance to 3rd base.
The Tigers offense put together just enough in three different innings to score 2 runs in each of those innings. Fishers scored in the 1st inning behind Simmons’ RBI single and also a sacrifice fly from Grant Moritz. In the 4th inning, Kaden Gorak doubled to scored Moritz and Jack Backofen. The last two Tiger runs crossed home plate due to aggressive base running that led to a couple errors by the Flashes and eventually a RBI double from Moritz.
The Tigers finish their season with a non-conference trip to Columbus North before the final HCC series with Brownsburg. The JV “post-season” includes a four-team tournament as the Tigers take on the Southeastern Royals with the winner of that game facing the winner of Westfield and Noblesville.
