Stamm, Cats shut down Red DevilsApril 24, 2019
From Herald Staff Reports
While every other local athletic contest was rained out on Wednesday evening, the Jasper baseball team continued its hot start to the season with a big road victory over Jeffersonville.
The Wildcats improved to 11-1 thanks to a mix of solid pitching from starter Carter Stamm and a total of eight team hits with multi-hit games from seniors second baseman Grant Ahlbrand and left fielder Isaac Bartley.
Jeffersonville opened the game with a solo home run in the top of the first inning but it would be the only run the Red Devils scored in the game. In fact, Jeffersonville only recorded one more base hit after the long ball in the first inning.
Jasper struck first in the third inning as Jade Jochum led off the inning with a single to left field. After he advanced to second base on a wild pitch, he eventually scored courtesy of an RBI single from Grant Ahlbrand to tie things up at 1-1.
The Cats took the lead in the fifth inning as Stamm drove in Josh Weidenbenner with an RBI single. Jasper added insurance runs in the sixth and seventh inning courtesy of a sacrifice fly by Trevor Krapf and an RBI single from Bartley.
Stamm improved to 3-0 on the mound this season as he was on fire on Wednesday with 12 strikeouts, three walks, two hits and only one earned run.
Jasper will be back in action tonight at home against Northeast Dubois.
