The Logan County High School baseball team picked up a pair of wins over the weekend, including a win in the first game the Cougars participated in for the Kelly Russell Classic.

The Cougars started the weekend off at Russellville High School, taking on Hancock County in the third annual Kelly Russell Classic.

Hunter Crafton threw a shutout as Logan County went on to win 5-0. Crafton gave up seven hits and walked two while striking out six in the victory. Austin Rayno had a double and scored two runs for the Cougars. Bradley Taylor and DJ Beard each had a double and two RBI. Jackson Campbell also had a hit and an RBI. Michael Riley, Kaleb Justice and Jack Wright also scored one run apiece.

LCHS then hosted Owensboro on Saturday and claimed another shutout victory with a 2-0 win. DJ Beard went all seven innings, surrendering just one hit and two walks while striking out four.

Logan County only managed four hits on the day – one each from Bradley Taylor, Nick Wooden, Kaleb Justice and Dylan Penick. Wooden and Taylor scored the Cougars’ only runs.

The Cougars earned the win by scoring one run in the bottom of the second and another in the third.

Logan County is scheduled to be back in action tonight at home against Todd County Central in a District 13 game.

Overall, the Cougars have a Fourth Region best 14-4 record and are a perfect 3-0 in District 13 action. Logan County is on the road later this week, playing at Barren County on Thursday and at Bowling Green on Friday.
