    My exact thought. One on, walk two with one out. Most you get is two outs with the guy that ties it with a HR. Iím no expert but very questionable for my Colonels. From what I read Krumps went away from normal play to get them to the finals and went back to the old school squeez. Not knocking anyone but why put a pitcher in that position in HS. Donít like the call but I donít have 1000 wins.

    Beagle made two key plays to extend the game for the Colonels in the 7th.

    On the triple by Kavanaugh there was a bad throw from deep right-center that ended up in short LF. Had he not been paying attention Kavanaugh would have scored on the error.

    He then made a diving catch on a sinking liner with bases loaded and almost doubled up Kavanaugh at third.

    Stallman threw really well. He and Casteel are going to be a strong 1-2 next year.

    Rom needed time to warm up. Cramer had time to warm up in the middle of the inning to come in for Dreves. They subbed Rom out to let him warm up in the bullpen, then re-entered him when he was ready.

    Regardless of the outcome, this was the best athletic class in NKY history. SM was the best junior dad in the region. He is AWESOME

    Forgot to mention the Beagle kid who should be going D1. Nice pick up for CCH from the county.

    Sorry to post so much, but I am normally in CC and had to drive all the way to BC to watch Cov Cath. They were clearly the favorite, but got several bad calls by an umpire who was overly impressed by the hype.

    How can say that Cov Cath was the favorite? And not sure you watched the same game everyone else watched. Take your beating like a man. Untill someone beats HHS in the tournament they will be the favorite.
