Covington Catholic 5 Ryle 3CovCath and Ryle got in the first game of the day before the rain started and both played an outstanding game of Baseball.
Since the afternoon games of Conner vs Ryle, St. Henry vs. Conner and the CovCath vs. St. Henry games have been rained out, I went back to work, so I won't be posting anything about the game except to say that Shumate went the distance for CovCath and improves his record to 2-0 until later this evening.
The Schedule for the rest of the tourney is as follows..
The Conner vs. Ryle game will be made up when those two team go up against each other on Monday in a District Seeding game.
If the field at CovCath is dry on Sunday:
St. Henry will play Conner at CovCath @ 1pm followed by the CovCath vs. St. Henry game. If the field at CovCah is too wet, then they hope to play at St. Henry.Advertisement

Apr 9, 11, 03:16 PM #3The Good: Adam Shumate pitching. The senior hurler for CovCath gave up only 3 runs on 5 hits and went the distance.
The Bad: Yesterday I bragged about not having so many LOB's but today... CovCath left a total of 11 men on.
The Ugly: Rain, lighting and Thunder.
BAWAC Inc. Offensive Star of the game: Got to go with my former battery mate from back in the Day's at CovCath (Johnny O'Brien) stepson Evan Winchester who hit a two run HR (375) in the top of the 4th.
Gruber Grill Defensive Star of the game: My man (and his Mom was my daughters kindergarten teacher), Jake Nienaber. In the top of the 5th with two outs Etscheid hits a line drive to left field that Jake takes a bead on and lays it all on the line diving for the ball, which he caught. Great catch Jake.
PeeWee's Place Star of the game: Got to go with Adam Shumate. Adam not only pitched an impressive game but knocked in two of the CovCath five runs today.
