Lexington Catholic Seeking State Baseball Championship

Lexington Catholic will play for its second state title in the last four years when the Knights meet Owensboro tonight at Applebees Park.

The Knights punched their ticket with a 10-run mercy of 10th region champion Harrison County late Friday night. It was Catholic's third mercy-rule win in its last four post-season games.

Owensboro is the Cinderella story of the tournament. Just three weeks ago, the Red Devils were 7-15 and coming off a 7-game losing streak in late April. But the third region champion caught fire at the right time and will take a seven-game winning streak into tonight's title game.

Game time is slated for 7:00. Tune in for complete highlights and post-game tonight at 27 Sports Spectrum at 11:00.
