Apollo takes two against DC

The Apollo High School baseball team captured a pair of victories over district foe Daviess County on Friday night at DCHS.

Apollo claimed a 5-4 walk-off win in a continuation of the teams’ weather-delayed matchup on April 18, followed by a 5-0 victory by the Eagles (18-5, 5-1 9th District).

In the previous meeting, DC scored three runs in the top of the seventh inning to tie the game before lightning delays forced the postponement. In the continuation, Gunnar Hendricks drove in the game-winning run in the bottom of the seventh.

In the later game, Ross Milburn went 2-for-4 with two RBIs and a run to pace the Eagles. Carter Kimmel struck out six batters in the shutout win.

DC slipped to 13-14 overall and 1-5 in district play.
