    TELL CITY—Harrison scored six unearned runs, including four in the first inning, to beat Tell City 11-8 in baseball Thursday.
    The Warriors scored their four first-inning runs on just two hits—a fly to left field that probably should have been caught and an infield hit down the third-base line.
    A dropped pop-up at shortstop, a dropped fly in left, a throwing error by the catcher, and a bobbled grounder by the shortstop also contributed to those runs, as did a sacrifice fly.
