H.S. BASEBALL: Bourbon County tops Southern

BEREA — The Madison Southern Eagles ran into a buzz saw in the form of the Bourbon County Colonels Wednesday in Berea.

The visiting Colonels pounded out 14 hits and took advantage of eight walks and two hit batters by Eagles’ pitchers and several errors to blow out the Eagles 17-0 in four innings.

Bourbon County scored three runs in the top of the first inning on only two hits off Southern starter and losing pitcher Easten Shouse.

After the Eagles went down in order in their half of the inning, Bourbon went right back to work, getting four more runs to take a 7-0 lead.

The Colonels chased Shouse with four consecutive singles to start the third inning.

Devin Vanover came on in relief but didn’t fare much better, striking out the first batter he faced, then walking the next three. He was replaced by Jonothan Ross who pitched the final two innings.

The Colonels blew the game wide open in the third, sending 15 batters to the plate, scoring nine runs to make it 16-0 before they added another run in the fourth.

The Eagles managed only two hits in the game, a second-inning single by Lukas Owens and a fourth inning single by Ross.

The Eagles will look to get back on the winning side Friday when they play host to Boyle County.
