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.
