  • Carrier Mills lost 12-3 to Hardin County in prep baseball action Monday as Josh Bailey took the loss, going the distance.
    Bailey gave up 12 runs on nine hits, while striking out eight and walking three. Two of those walks, including three errors in the third inning broke the game open for Hardin County as the Cougars scored six runs to take 7-2 lead.
    Carrier Mills held a 2-1 lead after one inning, but it didn't hold as Hardin County scored another run in the fifth and four more in the sixth.
    The Wildcats had seven hits on the day, but committed six errors.
    Loren Whiting led Carrier Mills at the plate, going 2-for-3 with three RBIs and Darren Betz finished 3-for-4.
    Gallatin County 5, Webber Township 4
    Gallatin County traveled to Bluford on Friday to match up with the Webber Township Trojans, and the Hawks slipped out of town with a 5-4 win. 
    Gallatin put three runs on the board in the first, but a couple of Hawk errors opened the door for a 3-run frame by the Trojans in the bottom of the inning. 
    The Hawks struggled to get the big hit, failing to capitalize on two bases loaded situations, but did manage to squeak out a single run the fourth.
    In the sixth inning, the Hawks opened up with a Marcus Wargel single and two batters later Wes McGuire knocked him in with a 2-out double. 
    On the hill Zach McGuire picked up the win going five innings and Wes McGuire came in a shut the door in relief to give the Hawks their 18th win of the season.  Gallatin now stands at 18-3 and will travel to Thompsonville today (Tuesday).
