Van-Far game reset; all JV games scratched for the season

Posted on April 1, 2015 at 8:39 am

    In the early part of a high school baseball season, runs are like bananas — they tend to come in bunches. Take this past Saturday’s Four Rivers Classic playoff games of 3rd-Place teams Hermann, St. James and Owensville. Pitchers’ duels they were not. Owensville bested Hermann in the second game in the Dutchmen’s 7th-inning at bat, pushing across six runs to take the contest 13-12. If a Bearcat pitcher is

    LOUISVILLE, Ky. (AP) — A Louisville squad given little chance of advancing past its first NCAA Tournament game is still hanging around, poised to make a Final Four run. That’s what tournament wins can do for a squad.
