CAL RIPKEN BASEBALL STATE TOURNAMENTS

Lexington — 2012 East Kentucky

9-year-old Cal Ripken

State Tournament

After scoring one run in the top of the first inning, the Lake Cumberland All-Stars would fail to score for the rest of the game, falling short to the Scott County All-Stars by a final tally of 12-1, in four innings, on Saturday in the 2012 East Ky. Nine-Year Old Cal Ripken State Tournament at Lexington’s Shillito Park.

The All-Stars scored one run on three hits in the contest, while Scott County exploded for 12 runs on eight hits. Scott County also took advantage of four Lake Cumberland miscues in the 11-run win.

Max Morris, Jonathan Phipps, and Brandon Sloan, each came up with a hit in the loss for Lake Cumberland. The team from Somerset scored their one and only run of the ballgame when lead-off batter Tucker Howard scored on a groundout from Drew Polston.

Lake Cumberland’s other game on the day was also a loss, as the local team fell to the Northern All-Stars, in four innings, 13-2. Once again, errors played a role in the game, as Lake Cumberland committed four in the 11-run loss.

Johnathan Phipps led the charge for Lake Cumberland, tallying a team-high two hits in the contest. Tucker Howard, Drew Polston, and Ethan Bolin, each had a hit in the ballgame. 

With two losses, Lake Cumberland was eliminated from tournament action.
