MONTGOMERY - Barr-Reeve escaped a bases-loaded situation in the seventh inning to beat Cannelton 5-2 in baseball Monday.
Cannelton loaded the bases with one out in the seventh, bringing the potential winning run to the plate.
But two fly balls followed (the first too shallow for the runner from third to tag up and score), ending the game.
Stephen Lane and Justin Dooley each went 2 for 4 to lead Cannelton's six-hit attack.
Lane pitched a complete game, giving up eight hits and two walks and striking out three.
Cannelton lost a doubleheader at Hancock County Tuesday 18-1 and 16-5.
"They just hit the ball real well," said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett of the Hornets, who improved to 8-8.
The Hornets outhit Cannelton 12-2 in the first game, getting two home runs and a triple.
Former Cannelton student Michael Mosby, who starred for Rockport's American Legion World Series team last summer, hit the triple.
Tyler Aud pitched the first two innings for Cannelton to take the loss.
He and reliever T.J. James combined to strike out three and walk two.
The Hornets outhit Cannelton only 8-5 in the second game but took advantage of five Cannelton errors.
Dooley went 3 for 4 to lead Cannelton. He and Dillon Powers each hit a double.
Cody Lawalin pitched the first two innings for Cannelton to take the loss. He walked one and struck out one.
Lane pitched the last two innings, walking two and striking out none.
Cannelton, 1-12, will visit Tell City Monday at 5 p.m.
