CANNELTON—Cannelton gave up 36 runs in baseball losses to Shoals and Hancock County Friday.

Shoals had 11 hits and drew 10 walks in a 14-4 win.
Larry Holman went 2 for 3 with a home run to lead Cannelton. Tristan Simmons added a double.
Drake Duke pitched the first inning for Cannelton to take the loss. He gave up three hits and four walks and struck out three.
Cannelton led 3-1 against Hancock County before the Hornets scored 15 runs in the fourth inning.
The Hornets had 19 hits and drew seven walks for the game.
Jayden Morris pitched the first 32⁄3 innings for Cannelton to take the loss. He gave up nine hits and four walks and struck out none.
Bailey Maffia went 2 for 2 and Drake Duke hit a three-run homer to lead Cannelton’s eight-hit attack.
Cannelton, 8-10, will play Tecumseh 7 p.m. Thursday in the Wood Memorial sectional.
