  • 13-run first inning propels Tecumseh past Cannelton

    LYNNVILLE—A 13-run first inning propelled Tecumseh past Cannelton 19-3 in baseball Wednesday.
    “We should’ve been out of the first inning down no worse than 3-1,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.
    “Instead it ended up being 13-1 mainly on errors, walks and hit batters - you name it, we did it.
    “We had an error at third base. On the next play we threw home and the catcher wasn’t on home plate when he caught it. Then it kind of snowballed from there.”

  • Corydon shuts out PC 5-0

    CORYDON—Perry Central had only two hits and committed seven errors in a 5-0 softball loss to Corydon Wednesday.
    Commodore batters struck out 12 times.
    “We swung at some bad pitches,” said Perry Central Coach Mark Rothgerber. “A lot of them were on a rise ball that wasn’t that good and we should’ve laid off of because it would rise out of the strike zone.
    “She had movement on the ball, but it wasn’t overwhelming.”
    On defense Perry Central “made a lot of silly errors,” said Rothgerber.
