    TELL CITY—The first thing Tell City baseball coach Jason Wilkerson mentioned after his team’s 11-0 win over Perry Central Wednesday was that the Marksmen committed no errors and gave up no walks.
    Perry Central wasn’t as fortunate in those categories, as three walks and two Commodore throwing errors contributed to Tell City’s eight-run first inning.
    There was also a passed ball on a third strike that led to the throwing errors and produced two runs.
