TIPP CITY — Tippecanoe’s Aaron Hughes isn’t pitching like a freshman.

Stebbins can attest to that.

Hughes was perfect through 4 2-3 innings Friday against the Indians, while the Red Devils piled up seven runs over the first three innings to put away a 7-2 victory in a makeup game in Central Buckeye Conference Kenton Trail Division play.

Hughes went 6 1-3 innings and struck out three and improved to 2-0 on the season as the Devils moved to 11-1 overall, 6-0 in CBC play.

“Aaron threw great,” Tippecanoe baseball coach Bruce Cahill said. “He’s a freshman throwing to varsity hitters, which means he’s only going to get stronger and older. But he threw a really great game today.”

Zack Blair led the Tippecanoe offense, going 3 for 4 with two RBIs, Cameron Johnson and Jared Rindler were each 2 for 3, Evan Gilliam was 2 for 4 and Ben Hughes doubled.

Tippecanoe hosts Tecumseh Monday to kick off a CBC Kenton Trail series.

Newton 4,

Arcanum 0

ARCANUM — Reid Ferrell flirted with a no-hitter and pitched his second consecutive one-hitter Thursday, and the Newton Indians shut out Arcanum 4-0 on the road in Cross County Conference play.

Ferrell struck out four and walked one in the game, taking a no-hitter into the seventh before the leadoff hitter finally ppicked up a single.

Newton held a 1-0 lead entering the top of the sixth, but a suicide squeeze brought in a run to widen the gap a little and Rhett Gipe put it away with a two-run double — much more support than Reid Ferrell turned out to need. Wade Ferrell was also 2 for 4 in the game for the Indians.

Newton played a doubleheader Friday night that was not complete at time of press. The Indians host Milton-Union today at 11 a.m.

Greenville 4,

Covington 3

GREENVILLE — Against a quality team like Greenville, mistakes must be kept to a minimum.

But Covington — which has reached the state tournament three straight years — committed an uncharateristic five errors on defense Friday, and the Green Wave (12-2) capitalized and stole a 4-3 victory in Greenville.

“We gave one away today,” Covington coach Dean Denlinger said. “Tough game.”

Arianna Richards was 2 for 3 for the Buccaneers (9-2), Morgan McReynolds was 2 for 4, Ashley Cecil was 2 for 2 and Jessica Dammeyer was 1 for 3 as the Buccs outhit the Wave 9-5 in the game.

Morgan Arbogast took the loss on the mound, her first of the season.

Covington hosts National Trail Tuesday in Cross County Conference play.
