    On the mound, the pitcher tossed a gem of a game and never let the Bears get comfortable, allowing just one hit and no earned runs while striking out four in a winning effort.

    The Collins baseball team looked as if it was on the way to the 30th District title game before the a storm derailed the team’s opening round game Monday.

    With the contest suspended due to lightning with the Titans leading Anderson County 6-1, the contest was scheduled to resume Tuesday at 5 p.m., but the results were not available at press time.

    Collins was rolling right up until the delay, thanks to timely hitting from Will Cline and Brandon Ethington and a strong pitching performance by starter Cameron Mattingly.

  • Perfect game leads to Shelby...

    Pitchers all-around the country and in the world can go an entire lifetime without being able to finish a game with a no-hitter much less a perfect game, so the city of Shelbyville was in for a treat in Tuesday night’s matchup between the Rockets and visiting East Jessamine.

    Rockets pitcher Caleb Collins was as good as one can be on the mound, tossing his first career perfect game at home while being backed up by some stellar defense in a 4-0 win over the visiting Jaguars (6-16).

  • Collins tops Eastern behind big...

    The Titans baseball team needed just one inning to accumulate all seven runs on Tuesday night, handing host Eastern a 7-1 defeat handily.

    Robert Sproul, Brandon Ethington and Will Cline were each able to drive in two RBIs apiece in the opening inning of action, setting the table for the rest of the game and giving starting pitcher Austin Ruble plenty of run support.

    Ruble made the most of his safety net, tossing a complete game win while allowing six hits and one earned run. In addition, the pitcher struck out five Eagle hitters and walked three in the victory.

  • Shelby goes on winning streak

    The Shelby County softball team capped an impressive weekend of performances with a 10-3 drubbing of visiting Tates Creek Monday night.
