Bulldogs, Indians impress in openers


Robert Beisley came on in relief and threw a solid second inning before getting roughed up in the third. Lapel sent nine batters to the plate in the frame. Dane Mason tied the game with an RBI-single, and Cade Luker put the Bulldogs ahead with a two-run triple. John Magers capped the inning with an RBI-double to make it 4-1.

Mason added another RBI-single in the fourth and a sacrifice fly in the fifth. He finished the day 3-for-3 with a double and four RBIs. Luker added a fifth-inning double, giving the Bulldogs No. 4 and 5 hitters a combined total of three extra-base hits and six RBIs.

"They're not both going to hit like that every day," Lantz said. "But there's a good chance one of those guys will be hitting like that (on any given day) behind Brady (Cherry). And you've seen the damage they can do if opponents decide to put him on base, whether it's intentional or not."

Cherry — the reigning Herald Bulletin player of the year — walked twice against the Lions and added a two-run double in the fifth. He also picked up the win on the mound, allowing just an unearned run and one hit through three innings.

Anderson also took awhile to get started in the first game of the evening. The Indians trailed Madison-Grant 1-0 when Julius Neal led off the bottom of the third inning with a double to straightaway center field.

He scored to tie the game on a double by Braden Odom, and the Indians took the lead one batter later on a sacrifice fly by Joe Moran. Drew Laughlin followed with a single to make it 3-1, and the Tribe never trailed again.

Anderson (1-3) moved ahead 8-1 with a five-run fourth inning that included a sacrifice fly by Odom and an RBI-single by Moran. Odom finished 2-for-3 with four RBIs, and Moran was 2-for-3 with two RBIs. Neal finished 3-for-3.

    Early in Thursday night's practice at Anderson University, Colts tight end Coby Fleener found himself running free behind the defense in 11-on-11 drills.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Werner - 319 Werner's progress evident at Colts Camp

    Bjoern Werner's rookie training camp was rather quiet. The German-born outside linebacker went through individual drills and worked hard in full-team sessions, but he was overwhelmed by all the new information he was processing. And it was holding him back. When the season started, Werner was further set back by a foot injury that cost him three games, and he finished the year with just 2.5 sacks. Then the former Florida State star went to work.

  • SPT - HB0731 - Colts Camp - Fleener - 206 Colts focusing on situational improvement One year ago, the focus in Indianapolis Colts training camp was on turnovers. The team had committed far too many in 2012 and was determined not to repeat its mistakes. The theme at Anderson University carried over to the field, and the Colts' 14 turnovers were the fewest in the NFL last year.
