  • Orleans shuts out Bulldogs

    CANNELTON—Orleans pounded seven extra-base hits and took advantage of eight Cannelton errors to beat the Bulldogs 14-0 in baseball Wednesday.
    The game was rained out before Cannelton got to bat in the bottom of the fifth, but because of the lopsided score the teams agreed to call it a complete game.
    Though Orleans hit the ball well, “we should’ve been going into the third inning 0-0,” said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett. “And we should have been out of the third with one run.”

  • TC’s Billings throws no-hitter

    DUBOIS—Chelsey Billings threw a no-hitter as Tell City whipped Northeast Dubois 11-0 in softball Thursday.
