Colonels Can’t Slow Down Visiting Logan County

Christian County’s Bryson Brown got his first start on the mound on Tuesday, pitching well through six innings, but the Colonels couldn’t come up with the big hit in a 6-2 loss to red-hot Logan County.  The Colonels have a three-game win streak snapped to stand at 5-3 overall, while the Cougars win their eighth-straight to improve to 10-1.  Logan County’s last five wins have all come on the road, outscoring the competition 48-24 over that span, including a 24-12 victory over Henderson County.

Trailing 1-0 in the bottom of the first, Colonel first-baseman Jase Polley double to left field to bring in Houston George to tie the game.  The Cougars pulled back in front in the third, using a couple of Colonel errors and a two-out RBI single by Third Bell for a 3-1 advantage.

Down 4-1 in the fourth, the Colonels pulled a run back on a sacrifice fly by Lane Diuguid, but that would be all Logan County starting pitcher Koby Wall would allow.  Christian County managed only one hit the rest of the way, a single in the bottom of the seventh by Bryson Brown.

Wall went the distance for the win, scattering 4 hits and allowing 2 runs, 1 earned, with 5 strikeouts and 5 walks.  Braxton Meguiar, Parker White and Bell had two hits each for the Cougars, with Meguiar, Bell, Dylan Penick, and Nate Woodall driving-in runs.

Brown took the loss, giving up 4 runs , 2 earned, on 8 hits, with a couple of strikeouts and walks.  Brown also was the only Colonel with 2 hits.

On Thursday, Christian County begins play at the Rebel Classic, where they’ll face Tennessee’s Lincoln County, Warren County, Goodpasture Christian, and Tullahoma.
