  • 13-run first inning propels...

    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.”
