Happy Friday, Part I
--It was the game of the day, and so far, it's probably the game of the year; Grayson County outlasted Christian County in 10 innings, beating the Colonels 7-6. What a week for the Cougars! They defeat a solid Warren East team, destroy new 3rd region foe Meade County and beat a top-10 team in Christian County to ensure their place among the state's elite.
--Mercy has now won two in a row. After an opening loss to Male, Mercy came back with wins over Fern Creek and, yesterday, Sacred Heart by a 7-1 margin.
--Lexington Catholic is off to a tough start so far. The Knights are 0-3 with all losses coming by a one-run margin. Yesterday, it was Model who knocked off Catholic.
--Who's my Cinderella to watch in the 11th region? How about Woodford County? The Yellow Jackets are off to a good start, with wins over Lexington Catholic and Anderson County and a close loss to state power (?) Estill County.
--The titans of the 4th both added wins yesterday as well. ACS dusted off Monroe County 10-0 in six innings, and Greenwood dominated defending 5th region champ Larue County 9-1.
Also, in the C-J's 7th region preview, I read that Manual's star pitcher Becca Saksefski was injured in Manual's win over Male on Wednesday. We have our eye on this situation as it unfolds.
More scores as they are updated...
