    "We're putting the ball in play - it's just right at someone," said Cannelton Coach Mike Garrett.

    The Bulldogs also had some defensive problems, committing six errors in the first game Saturday, two in the second game, and six Monday.

  • TC splits Saturday games

    TELL CITY - Cody Pfeifer pitched a nine-inning four-hitter as Tell City beat Mount Vernon 2-1 in baseball Saturday.

    Pfeifer struck out a season-high 11 and walked two. He threw only 120 pitches in the nine innings.

    "His fastball was hitting spots and he had a good breaking ball," said Tell City Coach Phil DeSpain. "He pitched a heck of a ballgame."

    Pfeifer also had two of the Marksmen's six hits and drove in the winning run in the bottom of the ninth.

    With one out in that inning Tommy McCallister doubled off the left-field fence.

  • PC second, TC third

    ENGLISH - A bad first hole kept Perry Central from winning a boys triangular golf match Tuesday.

    Crawford County won with 167 strokes. Perry Central shot 171 and Tell City 183.

    "We were only four strokes behind Crawford County - that's as close as we've ever been to them," said Perry Central Coach Bill Dickerson. "And our four scorers were a combined 9 over par on the first hole, a par-5. If we just bogey it, that trims five strokes and we win the match."

    Travis Goffinet led Perry Central with a 4-over-par 40.
