The Apollo Eagles split a doubleheader Saturday at AHS as they fell to Ohio County but bounced back to take down Henry Clay.

Ohio County took down Apollo 8-6 while the Eagles beat HC 5-3 in their second game of the day.


Against Ohio County, the game was tied after three before OC scored five runs over the next three innings to take an 8-3 lead heading into the seventh. Apollo attempted the comeback in the bottom of the seventh but only scored three runs to cut the final deficit to two.

Nolan Millay (2-4, RBI), Tanner Klee (2-4, 2B, 2 R) and Nick Judd (1-4, 2 RBIs, R) led the Eagles at the plate in game one.

Against Henry Clay, Apollo scored in the first frame and led 4-2 after the fourth before keeping HC at bay in the final few innings.

Klee and Maxwell Holder each finished with a single, RBI and a run in the victory.

Apollo plays Tuesday at home against Owensboro in a 9th District tilt.

All “A” Classic State Tournament: Owensboro Catholic 11, Clinton County 1
Owensboro Catholic 13, Muhlenberg County 0

After their win over Apollo Friday night, the Owensboro Catholic Aces dominated their two foes Saturday afternoon to grab three wins in 24 hours.

Catholic’s first game Saturday was against Clinton County in the first round of the All “A” Classic State Tournament, the same team that bounced the Aces from the All “A” state basketball tournament.

Catholic made sure history wouldn’t repeat itself as they dominated Clinton 11-1 in five innings after posting six runs in the bottom of the first off of a pair of home runs.

Sam McFarland was the first batter in the bottom of the first and he sent a shot to left field to put the Aces on the board. Later in the frame, fellow Junior Braden Mundy followed suit and sent a pitch over the left field wall.

Catholic led 8-0 after the first and cruised to the mercy rule win when they added three runs in the bottom of the fifth.

Finley Munsey grabbed the win as he went all five innings and struck out six.

McFarland, Mundy, Luke Evans and Luke Scales all had two hits in the game as McFarland, Evans and Mundy each finished with a pair of RBIs.

The Aces faced off against Muhlenberg County in their second game of the day and picked up right where they left off by taking down the Mustangs 13-0 in another five-inning game.

H Ward got the win in game two by striking out six and allowing just one hit in five innings of work.

J Wall had three hits and three RBIs from the No. 9 spot to lead the Aces but Mundy and Evans had the long ball going as the pair each had a two-run home run to give Mundy two bombs on the day.

Catholic plays Tuesday at home against Daviess County and Thursday at Owensboro before competing in the All “A” Classic State Tournament this weekend.
