Colonels Fall to South Warren in Regular Season Finale


The Christian County baseball team will enter the postseason on the heels of a three-game skid after Thursday’s 9-3 loss to visiting South Warren.  The Spartans spoiled the Colonels’ Senior Night with their sixth straight win in the series between the teams.

South Warren took an early advantage with a run each in the first and third innings before back-to-back sacrifice flys by Carter Sholar and Gage Montes tied the game in the bottom of the third.

The Spartans decided the contest with consecutive three-run innings, including an RBI single by Griffin Rardin and a two-run home run by Camden Page.  Brandon Perkins’ two-out triple drove in a run in the fifth, and one of the Colonels’ four errors allowed another run to cross for an 8-2 score.

Trailing by seven runs in their final at-bat, the Colonels loaded the bases with two outs on a Preston Stokes single and a pair of hit-by-pitches.  Sebastian Dazey drew a walk to bring in a run but a ground out ended the game with the bases juiced.

Montes took the loss for Christian County, allowing four earned runs on five hits with a walk and a strikeout.  Despite an injury, senior Broden Kellum got the start and faced only one batter in his final appearance on the Colonels’ home field.  Eddie Davis, Dazey, and Carter Sholar each worked on inning on the mound.

Mikey Coradini earned the win to help the Spartans improve to 17-15.  Coradini allowed two unearned runs on a hit with a walk and five strikeouts over four frames.

Perkins was 4/5 with two RBI for South Warren, Rardin had two hits, and Page collected a pair of hits and drove in three runs.

Christian County slipped to 12-19 ahead of a matchup with Hopkinsville in the 8th-District tournament.  The 2nd-seeded Colonels beat the Tigers at home before dropping the rematch, with both games decided by a single run.
