High school baseball: Avon uses speed, pitching to nail down win

By Jon Behm, The Morning Journal

Avon showed why it is the No. 1 seed in the Lorain District.

The Eagles shut out visiting North Olmsted on May 13 in a sectional final, 5-0, behind a tremendous effort on the mound by senior Scott Barnum and speed on the basepaths coupled with timely hits.

Barnum pitched 61/3 innings of three-hit ball for the Eagles, allowing only two runners to reach second and none to third while striking out 10 and walking three.

“I just did my job and let my fielders do theirs,” Barnum, who improved to 6-1 on the season, said. “It just felt good. I was hitting my spots and my pitches were working well today.”

High school baseball: Avon Eagles’ offense wakes up against Vermilion Sailors

Over the past few games, Avon coach Frank DeSmit was concerned about his team’s offensive production. The concern vanished as the Eagles earned a 7-2 victory on the road against the Vermilion Sailors.

“I think we had a little bit better approach today,” DeSmit said. “In the first few innings, I think we came out a little flat for whatever reason, I don’t know what that was all about. We tried getting them to be more aggressive at swinging at fastballs in the zone and they put up the big number in the fourth inning.”

Avon trailed, 2-0, heading into the top of the fourth when they managed to rough up Vermilion starting pitcher Josh Buchanan for six runs in the inning.

High school baseball: Tanner Doenges delivers game-winner as Avon edges Elyria Catholic in battle of state-ranked teams

Filed on April 29, 2015 by

AVON — For 130 pitches, Elyria Catholic sophomore right-hander Andrew Abrahamowicz did his job.

On his 131st pitch, Avon catcher Tanner Doenges did his job a little better.

Doenges lined a 2-1 fastball into center field, driving in Tommy Kocar and Tim Moroz to lift Avon to a 5-4 walk-off West Shore Conference victory at All Pro Freight Stadium.

“I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t nervous, but I was really confident walking into the box,” Doenges said of his seventh-inning at-bat. “I was going to look at the first pitch because I didn’t know if he was going to go off-speed because I’m the four-hole hitter. I don’t see a lot of fastballs.

“I took a couple of pitches. He’s a great pitcher but he missed his spot and I got a hold of it.”

Avon, ranked 10th in the state in Division I, improved to 18-2, 10-1 in the league, while the Panthers, ranked third in Division III, fell to 16-5 and 6-5.

Baseball: Avon Tops Lakewood 3-2

High school baseball: Bondy drives in three as Avon defeats Amherst

Scott Mahoney/SMahoney@MorningJournal.com Avon’s Jeff Laraway slides into third base ahead of Amherst third baseman Brad Hagerich’s tag on a steal attempt on April 21 in Avon. Laraway stole three bases during the game.

Avon senior Jack Bondy was thinking that he would have the afternoon off in the dugout to escape the gusting wind at Avon Middle School.

He was wrong.

Bondy was inserted into the lineup hitting in the nine hole and playing first base only minutes before the game. He responded  as if he had been preparing all day.

The junior drove in the first three Avon runs as the Eagles topped Amherst, 7-3, on April 21.
