Third Bell makes a catch in centerfield for the Logan County Cougars on Monday at WKU. The Cougars fell to Bowling Green to end the season.

The Fourth Region baseball tournament was held at WKU's Nick Denes Field this week. The Cougars from Logan County High School drew the Defending champion Bowling Green Purples in the first round for the second year in a row. The result was nearly identical to the 2018 Regional tournament meeting between the teams. Last year, Bowling Green defeated the Cougars 9-0. On Monday of this week, the Purples ended the Cougars' season with a 10-0 defeat.

Bowling Green's Jackson Haga and Logan County's Dylan Penick were locked into a pitcher's duel for the first three innings of Monday's game at WKU. The Cougars loaded the bases in the top of the third but failed to score.

The Purples got on the board in the bottom part of the third with a couple of singles, a sacrifice bunt, and a ground out. The score remained 1-0 in favor of Bowling Green until the bottom of the fourth. Haga started the fatal fourth inning with a single. After a quick triple and additional single, it was 3-0 Purples.

By the time the Cougars stepped to the plate again for the top of the fifth, it was 10-0. That would do it for the first round of the Regional tournament. The final was 10-0. Bowling Green would go on to beat Russell County 5-4 to make it to the final. South Warren won the championship on Wednesday by defeating Bowling Green 6-5.

Logan County had only three hits in the game against Bowling Green. Braxton Meguiar had two singles. Parker White also hit a single.

Dylan Penick allowed seven earned runs on nine hits. He had one strikeout and only one walk. Riley Ferguson allowed two runs on two hits in relief. Koby Wall closed it out with a strikeout and no hits allowed.

The Cougars end the season at 28-8.
