Campbell County 1 Bullitt East 0 - Rawlings/KHSAA State Baseball Semi-Final

Recommended Posts

Alex was solid as usual on the mound............. but IMO, Camels defense was the star in this one, just as they've been through out the post season. Defense had some big time plays tonight.

Campbell County punches first ticket to state baseball finals

 

Campbell County, the highest-scoring team through the first two rounds of the Rawlings/KHSAA State Baseball Tournament, needed only one run to advance to its first state finals thanks to a dominant outing from star pitcher Alex Franzen in his final start.

 

The Camels defeated Bullitt East 1-0 in the second semifinals matchup that went nine innings on Friday. St. Xavier defeated McCracken County, 3-2, in the first semifinal, and will meet Campell County in a 7 p.m. championship game at Whitaker Bank Ballpark on Saturday.

 

Franzen, a senior, gave up four hits, walked two batters and had seven strikeouts over 8 and 2/3 innings. He had to leave the game before recording the final out due to the pitch-count rule; he exited after throwing 122 pitches.

 

Colton Hartig came on in relief of Franzen. The junior gave up a first-pitch single to Derrick Kromenacker, Bullitt East’s designated hitter, before striking out Jared Riordan to finish off the Chargers, who stranded two runners in the final frame and eight overall.

LEXINGTON, Ky. – Hits were hard to come by all night, but Carson Plessinger finally delivered the one that ended the season for the Bullitt East High School baseball team.

 

Plessinger’s RBI double in the ninth inning was the difference as Campbell County defeated the Chargers 1-0 in Friday’s semifinals of the Rawlings/KHSAA State Tournament in front of 2,713 fans at Whitaker Bank Ballpark.

 

Campbell County (29-10) will face St. Xavier (28-12) at 7 p.m. Saturday in the state final.

 

Connor Walsh led off the ninth with a double and was replaced by pinch-runner Rob Augspurger. The double also knocked Bullitt East pitcher Kyle McKinley out of the game.
