CORYDON - Perry Central committed seven errors in an 18-9 baseball loss to Corydon Monday.

Corydon had 13 hits and also took advantage of several walks.

Bo Gibson, the first of six Perry Central pitchers, took the loss. He walked four and struck out one in 11?3 innings.

Ryan Hanan went 2 for 4 to lead Perry Central's seven-hit attack and Ryan Kessens drove in two runs.

Adam Riley went 5 for 5 with seven RBIs for Corydon.

A lack of hitting hurt Perry Central in a doubleheader loss at North Posey Saturday, as the Commodores had one hit in the first game and three in the second game.

Adam Riley struck out 12 and walked none as North Posey won the first game 10-0.

Gibson's fourth-inning double was the Commodores' only hit.

Drew Schroer, the first of three Perry Central pitchers, took the loss. He walked one and struck out four in three innings.

Perry Central pitchers combined to walk 10 as they lost the second game 11-3.

Commodore starter Tony Backer breezed through the first inning, facing only four batters.

But he walked the first five batters of the second inning and was relieved by Clint Cassidy.

A bright spot on the mound for the Commodores was freshman Andrew Harpenau, who walked only one and struck out one while pitching two scoreless innings.

Gibson hit his second double of the day in that game. He, Hanan and Austin Hauser each drove in one run.

Perry Central, 1-3, will host Crawford County today at 4:30 p.m.
