  • Call it a three-game sweep for the John A. Logan College baseball squad as the Vols took a pair of games from Shawnee College on Saturday, 2-0 and 14-2, a day after notching a 5-0 win in Carterville.
    Sophomore Derek Thompson was simply amazing in Saturday's opener, tossing a complete-game shutout, allowing only two hits in his seven innings of work. Thompson (5-1), struck out 11 and walked three.
    Logan plated both of its runs in the fifth inning. Sophomore third sacker Keelin Rasch of Harrisburg led the charge with two hits in four at bats, including an RBI single. J.C. Davis contributed a double. Others notching one hit apiece were: Tanner Scott, Joba Ferrell, John Tolliver, and Dontrell Rush. DeJohn Suber did not get a hit, but scored a run.
    In the finale, the Vols erupted for 17 hits as led by sophomore Anthony Bayus's collection of four. He also had an RBI and two runs scored. Davis was 3-for-4 with three runs scored. Derek Repking bashed three hits, as well, including a pair of runs batted in. Rasch made the most of his two hits with a two-run homer and single and drove in five of his team's runs. Scott followed with two hits and two RBIs. Rush had two hits and two runs scored. Ferrell tacked on one hit with an RBI.
    The Vols scored four runs in the first; five in the second; two in the third and three in the sixth.
    Winning pitcher was Chris Hunt. The sophomore righthander went the first four innings, surrendering two runs, one earned. He gave up five hits, struck out five and walked one. Anthony Spangler tossed the final two frames, striking out three.
    Sophomore lefthander Wes Mason continued to impress on the mound Friday, striking out 12 and allowing only four hits in eight shutout innings. The Mount Vernon native is now 2-0 on the spring. Freshman Johnny Hondlik hurled a scoreless ninth.
    Logan plated three runs in the first inning highlighted by a two-run single off the bat of Repking and an RBI single by Ferrell. The Vols added two more runs in the second inning. Rush singled, stole second, advanced to third on a groundout by Davis, and scored on a passed ball. Bayus then singled, stole second and scored on Scott’s base hit.
    Bayus led the team at the dish with three hits in four at bats. Repking, Rush and Davis each bashed two hits. Scott and Ferrell collected one hit apiece.
    The Vols (15-13) are scheduled to play at Jefferson College in Hillsboro, Mo., Tuesday and will host Southeastern Illinois Thursday at 3 p.m.
