Colonel Bats Don’t Make the Trip in Five-Inning Loss to Apollo (w/PHOTOS)


Whether it was the 11 AM start or the hangover from a hard-fought district defeat on Friday night, the Christian County Colonels struggled to kickstart their offense in an 11-0 loss to Apollo on Saturday at Lyon County.

Apollo starting pitcher Noah Davis entered the contest sporting a minuscule 0.43 ERA and the senior hurler didn’t disappoint, allowing a single hit with two walks and five strikeouts over five frames to earn his sixth victory of the season.

Leading 1-0 in the top of the second, the Eagles tacked on five runs against Colonels’ starting pitcher Gage Montes, including RBI doubles by Easton Blandford and Ty Lillpop.

A five-run fourth did the rest of the damage, with Lillpop’s second run-scoring double and back-to-back RBI singles by Garrett Lanham and Grayson Smith providing the highlights.

Montes took the loss, allowing six runs, three earned, on seven hits with a walk and two strikeouts over two innings before handing off to Eddie Davis.  Davis gave up five runs, four earned, on five hits with a strikeout and three walks, and Sebastian Dazey recorded a strikeout in a scoreless fifth inning.

Lillpop finished 3/3 with four RBI to pace the Eagles, and Lanham also had three hits with a run driven in.  Smith and Blandford both collected two hits and drove in three.

The Colonels slipped to 12-18 ahead of a visit from Trigg County on Wednesday.  Christian County has won the last six in the series dating back to a 5-4 Wildcat win in 2019.
