    This game did not count in PLAC standings (Perry Central previously beat the Wolfpack 12-3 in the game that did count), and most of the game the Commodores played defense as if they were well aware that this game didn’t count in the conference.

    They committed six errors that led to two unearned runs for the Wolfpack.

    A two-run homer followed and the Highlanders would go on to score two more runs in the inning to tie the score.

    In the top of the eighth inning two errors by Tell City’s third baseman and a sacrifice bunt put runners on second and third with one out.

    Cannelton scored five runs in the third inning on just two hits, singles by Aud and T.J. James.

    Three Trinity errors and two walks also contributed to that rally.
