Logan County High School and Coach Ethan Meguiar brought another excellent baseball team to the 4th Region tournament in 2018. The Cougars won the 13th District tournament just last week in Franklin. Unfortunately, The Bowling Green Purples had all the right answers in the opening round of the regional tournament on Monday while Logan County fizzled at the plate.

Logan County sent Koby Wall to the mound against the Purples at Western Kentucky University. Wall and the defense got Bowling Green in order to start the game. Braxton Meguiar got the first hit of the ballgame in the bottom half of the opening frame. The Cougars were unable to push the run across.

The Purples led off the 2nd inning with a single, but the runner was stranded after three quick outs by the Cougar defense.

The first run of the game crossed the plate in the top of the third inning. A Bowling Green triple and walk set up an RBI single with only one out. The Purples would add two more to take a 3-0 lead into the top of the sixth.

In the sixth inning, the Cougars watched Bowling Green score three more runs before recording the first out. The eventual five-run inning would give powerful Bowling Green an 8-0 lead with hope fading for Logan County going into the bottom of the sixth. The Purples would tack on one more to make it 9-0. The shutout ended the season for the Cougars with an impressive (24-9) record.

Logan had five hits in the game. Nate Woodall smacked a double. Braxton Meguiar hit two singles. Kaleb Justice and Third Bell each hit a single.

Koby Wall went into the third inning on the hill. He allowed five hits and three runs. Dylan Penick picked up 3.2 innings in relief. Penick recorded two strikeouts while allowing five runs. Riley Ferguson threw one inning to close the game. He allowed one run on one hit and struck out one.

The meeting between the two teams was the third of the season. Logan County won the opening game 6-2. Bowling Green took the second game 13-3.
