Danville swept in semi-state series
Danville’s season ended Friday night as Lexington Catholic completed a two-game sweep of their semi-state series with a 15-2, six-inning victory.
The pitching staff took a beating for the second straight game, as the Admirals were outscored 25-2 in their two games at Henry Clay.
In the second game, which was pushed back two days by rain, Danville led 2-0 before Lexington Catholic tied the game with two runs in the third inning, went ahead with two more in the fourth, broke it open with four in the fifth and finished the Admirals off by dropping seven on them in the sixth. Both games in the series were shortened by the mercy rule.
This was the Admirals’ second trip to the semi-state round — which is considered the first round of the state tournament — in three years, and both times they were swept by Lexington Catholic in the best-of-three series.
