The Logan County Cougar baseball team had a rough weekend, adding two losses to their record. The Cougars faced the Bowling Green Purples on Friday and the Glasgow Scotties on Saturday. The Cougars offense would struggle and not be able to score in either game. The Cougars would fall 10-0 to the Purples and 6-0 to the Scotties.
The Cougars would end the first inning of their game against the Purples tied 0-0. But the Purples would begin to step up their offense in the second inning and score against the Cougars. By the end of the fourth inning, the Purples would have a 5-0 lead over the Cougars.
Jordan Hendrix would step on the mound for the Cougars and pitch during the fifth inning, and the Cougars defense would hold the Purples off from scoring. But they would come back in the sixth inning to score one point and in the seventh to add four more runs to their score.
Michael Riley, Joe Holiday and Ian Woodall would get hits for the Cougars, but the Purple defense would not give the Cougars a chance to score. The Purples would win 10-0.
Hunter Britt pitched for the Cougars for three innings. Britt finished allowing four hits, five runs, walked five and strikeout one. Jordan Hendrix pitched for one inning and allowed one hit, no runs, walked one and strikeout none. Hunter Crafton would finish out the night. Crafton allowed seven hits, five runs, walked three and strikeout one.
The Cougars headed to Glasgow on Saturday to face the Scotties. This game was very similar to their game against Bowling Green. The Cougars would be able to hold the Scotties to only one run through the second inning, but the Scotties would fight back. The Cougars defense would have five errors in the game and the Scotties would score three runs in the third inning and two more in the fourth.
The rest of the game would go by fast with no more runs added to the score, but the Cougars would fall 0-6.
Senior Joe Holiday pitched for four innings. He allowed six hits, six runs, walked three and strikeout three. Matt Harper would step in for the last two innings. He would allowed one hit, no runs and would strikeout one.
The Cougars and the Russellville Panthers will play tonight in the “Clash of the Cats.” The game will be held at Logan County and the game will start at 5:00 p.m.
