Setting the lineup
Two baseball games scheduled for today will determine the order of things for next month’s 45th District Tournament.
The four seeds will be determined after Danville plays at Boyle County and Garrard County plays at Lincoln County this afternoon.
The Danville-Boyle game will decide the Nos. 1 and 2 seeds. It’s the only scheduled game this season between the two teams. (Teams in this district only have to play each other once for seeding, and if they play twice it’s the first game that counts.) Danville beat Boyle twice last season, 2-0 in the regular season and 12-1 in the district final.
(Important game time note: At least three different starting times are floating around for this game. It is scheduled to begin at 5:30 p.m., 30 minutes later than some might expect and 90 minutes earlier than others might expect. Be on time.)
Half an hour before things get started at Boyle, Garrard and Lincoln will begin their game that will decide seeds Nos. 3 and 4. This is also the only time these teams will play in the regular season. Lincoln won last year’s only meeting 6-3.
Boyle (18-4) and Danville (15-7) are both 2-0 in the district standings; Lincoln (7-12) and Garrard (10-5) are both 0-2. Here are results of the other district games that will count in the standings: April 8, Boyle County 4, Lincoln County 3; April 15, Boyle County 16, Garrard County 6; April 15, Danville 7, Lincoln County 4; April 22, Danville 8, Garrard County 4.
