PREP BASEBALL: Meade County locks up region tournament berth (05/14)

-A A +A

The Meade County Green Wave earned a chance to defend their 3rd Region Tournament title Monday night with a doubleheader sweep at 11th District rival Hancock County.

The Green Wave won Game 1, 11-2, and Game 2, 6-1, to earn the No. 1 seed in the district tournament. Since Meade County is in a three-team district, the top seed means a bye into the district final – and 1-of-2 berths in the region tournament.

* In Game 1, junior Zeb Wilson went 3-for-4 with two doubles and two RBIs. Junior Keith Carter doubled and drove in two, while senior Zach Kullman and freshman Kase Mattingly each had two hits.

Carter (5-2) struck out seven and scattered five hits in his complete-game win.

* In Game 2, senior Derek Bruner tripled and drove in two, while senior Kaleb Lancaster also had two RBIs.

Wilson (3-0) walked two, gave up five hits and didn’t allow an earned run.
