Miners to play Hillcrest in zone tournament final

CARTHAGE, Mo. —  Carthage, getting four hits and four runs scored from Miles Goade, outlasted Nevada 16-11 on Friday in the losers’ bracket of the Missouri Zone 3 Tournament of American Legion baseball.

Springfield Hillcrest ousted Carthage 13-5 late Friday night in the losers’ final at Carl Lewton Stadium.

Hillcrest must beat Joplin twice today — starting at 5 p.m. — to advance to the four-team state finals next week at Sedalia.

Carthage, which outhit Nevada 13-12, also was given 11 bases on balls and a hit batsman by the Red Sox hurlers.

Said Carthage coach Jason McVey: “We hit the ball well and we were patient at the plate. The hitting — 13 hits compared to just three on Thursday — was huge.”

Dalton Dyer notched the Carthage pitching decision by working five innings in relief. Fellow right-hander Sawyer Shepherd finished by tossing 21⁄3 innings.

First baseman Goade also helped on defense. He snuffed out a Red Sox rally in the ninth inning by spearing a hard grounder, tagging first for the second out and throwing to shortstop⁄brother Mason Goade for the putout for the game-ending double play.

Kyle Lee added three hits for the Merchants and Jared Heman roped two doubles.

The Red Sox put on a power display with Bubba Banes pulling two home runs to left field — one into the trees — and Lane Ketterman bashing an inside-the-park homer to just left of center field with the ball hitting off the wall an estimated 420 feet.

Grant Davis also had a triple among four hits and Banes added a single.

Late runs lift Miners

Two tallies in both the eighth and ninth innings rallied Joplin past Hillcrest 9-7 in the winners’ bracket final on Thursday night.

Hillcrest was in front 7-5 after seven innings.

Mate Brummer and Bryce Ash delivered clutch two-out hits for the Miners, coach Bobby Stackhouse said Friday.

The Miners caught the Merchants in the top of the eighth inning. Tristan Ash reached second on an error and Brummer singled for the first run. A single by Josh Miller, a passed ball and winning pitcher Bryce Ash’s two-out single tied the contest.

Brett Graham’s infield single and a sacrifice by Keith Simpson ignited Joplin in the ninth inning.

Brummer rapped a two-out single to plate Graham. Tyler Russell then walked and Brummer made it home on a short wild pitch and ensuing error trying to nail him at third base.

Tristan Ash is today’s 5 p.m. probable starting pitcher for the Miners, Stackhouse said, but Joplin also has fellow right-handers Simpson and Nathan Cox available.

    Frazier Glenn Cross drew the ire of Joplin residents in 2006 when several hundred copies of his white supremacist newspaper were landing on lawns in the city. The White Patriot Leader spouted the usual Cross diatribe. A race war was imminent. The “newspaper for white Americans,” as it billed itself, ranted against an invasion of the country by illegal Hispanic immigrants, the proliferation of black culture, and a purported takeover of the government, banks and the media by Jews.
