The Louisville Leopards Varsity Baseball Team defeated the visiting Akron Ellet Orangemen 9-1 Thursday Evening at Andy Aljancic Field. With their second straight victory, Louisville improves to 7-6 on the year.


Aljancic RBI Hits Put Leopards In Front

Senior first baseman Ryan Aljancic batted 2-for-3 with a pair of RBI hits to lead the Leopards. Aljancic’s RBI single to right field plated senior courtesy runner Evan Kroah to give Louisville the first lead of the game in the bottom of the second inning.

After Ellet knotted the game at 1-1 in the top of the fourth, Aljancic delivered again in the bottom half of the inning. His 1-out triple to center field scored senior designated hitter Broc Pickens from second to give the Leopards a 2-1 advantage.


Morley Lights Out After Surrendering Lone Run

My Fit Life Personal Trainer Side AdLouisville would never surrender that lead as sophomore starting pitcher Connor Morley shutdown the Orangemen the rest of the way. Morley threw a complete game, gave up 1 run on 3 hits, and struck out 7 on the mound to improve to 3-2 on the season. 

Chase Merring’s 2-out line drive single to center field scored Devin Huwig for Akron Ellet’s only run of the contest in the fourth inning. Morley responded by retiring the next 8 Orangemen batters and sent down 10 of the next 11 Ellet hitters the rest of the way. A Leopard error with 1-out in the top of the seventh produced the only EHS base runner in the remaining innings following the hit that tied the game at 1-1.


Miller Drives Home a Pair of Runs

Lingenhoel Group - Arden and Lisa Lingenhoel - Cutler Real Estate AdJunior third baseman Caleb Miller also drove in a pair of runs for Louisville. After Aljancic tripled home the go-ahead run in the fourth, Miller brought him home on a ground out to third base. Miller would later hit an RBI triple of his own scoring Kroah from second to put LHS ahead 7-1 with two outs in the seventh inning. A balk in the next at-bat scored Miller from third to cap off 7 Leopard runs in span of two innings.


Adelman Records Multi-Hit Game

Samantha's Grill AdJunior left fielder Connor Adelman also finished with a multi-hit game as Louisville out-hit Ellet 9-3 for the contest. Adelman singled and stole second base with two outs in the bottom of the fourth. Two batters later, sophomore centerfielder Charlie Roberts reached base via an error on the shortstop that allowed both Adelman and junior right fielder Zack Seaman to reach home to rip the game open 5-1 in favor of the Leopards.


Popick Steals 2nd and 3rd Again

Jenny Can Cleaning AdLouisville continued to be a menace to the opposition on the base paths as they recorded 5 steals as a team. This was put on display no better than in the fifth inning when junior shortstop JT Popick swiped both second and third for the second straight game. He would then take home after a throwing error by the Ellet catcher.

Popick is now tied with Seaman for the team lead in steals this season with 7. The Leopards have now swiped 32 bags this season as a team. 


Kroah Drives Home Seaman in the Sixth

Louisville City School District Levy 2021 - Issue 13 AdLouisville tacked on another run in the bottom of the sixth without needing a hit to do so. Seaman walked and advanced to second and third on a passed ball. He then scored via Kroah’s sacrifice fly to center field to put the Leopards in front 9-1.

JV: Louisville 5, Akron Ellet 2
