TEUTOPOLIS — Despite managing just five hits all game, Teutopolis High School scored 12 runs and got a one-hitter from Craig Westendorf en route to a 12-0 win over visiting St. Elmo in Wednesday baseball action.

The Shoes were benefactors of six St. Elmo errors in this game, scoring four unearned runs in total. T-town also drew seven walks and two hit batsmen, many of which ended up coming around to score.

Jason Runde had a big day in the leadoff spot for T-town, going 3-for-3 with four RBIs and a pair of stolen bases. Cody Nosbisch and Cole Steffen had the other two hits for the Shoes, all singles.

Meanwhile, Westendorf allowed just a double to Jordan Donaldson in his five innings of work. He walked just two while striking out four and needed just 50 pitches to complete the game.

Teutopolis improves to 10-3 with the victory and will travel to Dieterich for a game this evening. St. Elmo drops to 6-7 this season and will host Sandoval today.

At Nokomis

Altamont picked up four first inning runs on the road at Nokomis and cruised to an 11-4 non-conference win Wednesday.

Justin Hovis' three-run home run in the top of the fifth capped the Indians scoring; he also singled in his next at bat and pitched 6 2/3 innings in the win. Ben Mehl also had two hits, a single and a double, and drew a pair of walks. He also knocked in two runs and scored three times.

Altamont improves its season mark to 4-5 with the win.

At Kinmundy

Trailing 3-1 in the bottom of the fourth, South Central scored four times in the frame, giving the home team the lead and eventually the win as it knocked off Noble 5-3.

Tanner Bushue got the win for South Central after a rough top of the first inning in which he gave up all three Noble scores. Bushue calmed down and finished the game with seven punchouts and a couple walks while allowing nine hits.

Wade Crain drove in two runs on three singles for the winners, while Robert Slater's two doubles were also good for a pair of RBIs. Tyler Mulvany had two base hits as well for South Central, and Spencer Patton had an RBI double.

With the win, South Central is now 12-2 and slated to travel to Brownstown today. Noble falls to 7-8.

At Odin

Justin Burton's two-out RBI single in the bottom of the ninth was a game-winner as host Odin knocked off Clay City in an extra-innings affair.

Odin trailed 3-2 from the fourth inning on in this game before scoring in the bottom of the seventh to get it into extra innings. Alex Young gets credit for the win on the mound, relieving Kurtis Vaughn in the seventh and benefiting from Burton's late-game heroics.

It was Burton's second hit of the day as he had singled earlier as well, and Brian Deadmond hit a solo home run in the third to tie things up at two apiece. Vaughn also singled and doubled in the game for the winners.

Odin moves to 5-4 this season and will travel to Mulberry Grove today. Clay City is now 6-7 and is on the road at Noble today.

At Windsor

Windsor fell to Shelbyville 12-2 in five innings via the 10-run rule Wednesday.

The Rams banged out 13 hits against Windsor pitching. Shelbyville improves to 12-1.
