Rising Sun beats White River Valley 7-2 in 1A Regional Semi

Morristown- Rising Sun came out tight against White River Valley during Saturday’s 1A Regional 15 semifinal at Morristown, but the Shiners took over the lead in the fourth inning and went on to post a 7-2 victory.

This game was seen live as part of our spring webcast schedule and can be seen again in our archives by clicking here.

The Wolverines, the Cinderalla team of the entire IHSAA state tournament, played 18 games during the regular season without a win.  Brayton Cornelius, the ace of the staff, pitched just one inning in early April and was injured.  He was diagnosed with a torn ligament in his elbow.  Over the remainder of the regular season, the WRV pitching staff combined for a plus-10 ERA, hit over 50 batters and walked over 130 more.

As it turned out, Cornelius’ injury was misdiagnosed and he doesn’t require surgery.  He still went through rehab and was back pitching for the Wolverines by the sectional semifinals.  In that game against Clay City, he pitched two innings to help secure the win then earned the victory in the sectional championship going 4-2/3 innings against North Central.

Yes, a team that went 0-18, won a sectional title and it was the first in Wolverine baseball program’s history.

Cornelius was on the hill against No. 5 Rising Sun. White River Valley scored in the top of the first. Blake Wilson singled to right and was later driven home by Dalton York on a base hit to center.

The Shiners tied it during the home first. Bryant Housemyer lined a ball to center which the fielder laid out for but missed.  That allowed Housemyer to leg out a triple.  He scored on a dropped third strike.

WRV went up 2-1 in the second. Cade Eaton walked and stole second. He took third on a single to right by Skyler Sipes but also scored when the ball got past the Shiner outfielder.

The 2-1 Wolverine advantage held until Rising Sun sent eight batters to the plate in the fourth and scored three times.

Story continues.
