Thursday Night Game Canceled

Tonight’s game between the Miners and the Dubois County Bombers has been CANCELED due to the field condition at Elmer Kelley Stadium.

The Miners and Bombers will play one single-elimination nine-inning ballgame on Friday night in Dubois County. The game will start at 7:00pm ET at League Stadium in Huntingburg. The winner of that game will advance to play the winner of the Owensboro/Hopkinsville series for the OVL Championship.

The OVL Championship will be determined in one single-elimination nine-inning ballgame played on Saturday night at the home field of the highest remaining team.

If tonight’s game between the Oilers and Hoppers is canceled due to weather, the remainder of the OVL Playoffs will be canceled with no further games played.

Miners Advance to Semi-finals

Miners Eliminate Stallions 12-6 Tuesday Night

The rain stayed away from Elmer Kelley Stadium on Tuesday night, and the Miners and Stallions finally hooked up for the Round One playoff match-up. The Miners committed six errors and gave up six unearned runs in holding off a scrappy Stallion team in a 12-6 victory to advance to the OVL playoff semi-finals.

The Miners took an early 3-0 lead with three runs in the bottom of the first inning. The big blow of the inning was a two-RBI single from Logan Jarvis , driving in Genesis Hillard and Joe McGuinness. Chase Hensley scored later in the inning on a wild pitch from Stallion starter Max Hall.

The Stallions got on the board with one run in the top of the 4th inning when Justin Ware singled and later scored on a Madisonville throwing error.

Madisonville answered with four runs in the bottom of the 5th to make the score 7-1. Austin Sistrunk and Nolan Ramsey each drove in one run, and Tom Prospero belted a two-run home run over the right field fence.

Both teams added runs in later innings, with Madisonville adding four runs in the bottom of the seventh and one more in the bottom of eighth.  The Stallions scored three in the top of the sixth and tow more in the top of the eighth.

Madisonville starter Jeff Lindgren pitched six complete innings and picked up the Win. Although the Stallions scored four runs with Lindgren on the mound, all of the runs were unearned. Lindgren allowed six hits, walked one, and struck out three. Kyle Klotz pitched two innings, giving up one hit, two walks, and striking out two. The Stallions scored two unearned runs with Klotz pitching. Mitchell Bault came on to pitch the ninth and struck one in retiring the side in order to end the game.

Stallion starter Max Hall took the loss, allowing 7 earned runs in 4.67 innings. Aaron Glitchstein pitched 2.00 innings of relief, allowing four runs, all unearned, on two hits, four walks and two strikeouts. Corey Mason pitched the final 1.33 innings and gave up two runs (one earned) on one hit and one walk.

Both teams were sloppy defensively, with the Miners committing six errors and the Stallions committing four.
