Owensboro Catholic 19, Webster County 7 (5 innings)
Luke Scales had four hits including a homer and Owensboro Catholic (11-6) used a 12-run third inning to blow by Webster County (4-12) in five innings on the road. It’s the fifth win in a row for the Aces, who finished with 15 hits and five doubles.

Scales hit the two-run long ball in the first inning for an early Catholic lead, and they added two more in the second before the Trojans got on the board. Webster County closed the gap to 16-7 before the Aces scored three more to end the game early.

Scales (4-for-5, 3 runs, 5 RBIs, double) and Andrew Wiman (4-for-5, run, 2 RBIs, double) had the only multi-hit days. Everett Munsey (3 runs, 3 RBIs) and Sam McFarland (5 RBIs, double) also had big days on offense.

Munsey pitched three innings and got the win, giving up five runs on six hits and striking out five.
