Baseball goes 3-1 at Midwest Classic

Some of the best high school baseball teams in the Midwest converged on Westfield last weekend for the inaugural Midwest Classic.

The Zionsville Eagles, ranked 13th in the state in Class 4A, went 3-1 for the weekend, beating Class 2A No. 2 Lafayette Central Catholic and Michigan's highly ranked Salinas twice. Their lone loss was a 7-4 defeat at the hands of top-ranked Cathedral.

"I am very happy," Zionsville head coach Jered Moore said. "I thought our kids played well and hard. Our offense came out better than I was expecting so I was happy to see that. Our pitching was good and we just had the one game that got away from us. But overall, I was very happy."

The Eagles blanked LCC 8-0 thanks to a combined no-hitter from Kellan Elsbury, Jack Pilcher and Jake Lane then beat Salinas 3-2 on a walk-off hit by Nick Maines.

They hung with the top-ranked Irish for four innings before a five-run fifth hurt the Eagles. They then bounced back an hour later to defeat Salinas for a second time 12-6, pounding out 15 hits in the process.

Moore said that he liked the fact the Eagles had different kids of games they were forced to win.

"It is good to see," Moore said. "We are going to have to win a few different ways with the conference we are in. I was happy to see that we could win different ways."
