  • Improved defense not enough as...

    HAWESVILLE, Ky.—Cannelton had only two hits as it lost a baseball doubleheader to Hancock County 2-0 and 7-0 Tuesday.
    The teams agreed to play only five innings each game, so Cannelton players went to the plate only four times apiece for the day.
    They didn’t do a lot with those at-bats either, as they had two hits - both singles - and no walks in the first game and no hits and two walks in the second game.
    They had strong defense, though, committing only two errors in the first game and none in the second game.
