Phipps recorded an impressive 13 strikeouts and gave up only three hits. Phipps pitched five innings of scoreless baseball before giving up a pair of meaningless runs to Casey County in the final frame.

The game went three complete innings with neither team able to send a runner home. But Lake Cumberland was able to put a pair of runs on the board in the home half of the fourth inning.

In the fourth, Brandon Slone singled to right field bringing home Trey Price. Later, Gavin Stevens laid down a prefect sacrifice bunt to score Max Morris from third base.

Lake Cumberland came back to score three more runs in the fifth inning. Ryle McBride hit an inside-the-park homer to lead off the inning for the local all-stars. Zach Travis tripled to right field scoring Cole Reynolds. Later, Travis came home off a wild pitch.

The 10U Lake Cumberland All-Stars will play in the Cal Ripken East Kentucky State Tournament at Southeastern Lexington on July 10.
