  • 11-12 All-Stars win first round...

    Lincoln Haydon homered with two outs in the top of the sixth and those runs held up as Marion County's 11-12-year-old All-Stars beat Russell County 2-0 in the opening round of the District Tournament in Campbellsville on Monday night.

    Haydon was great with the bat, but Robbie Spalding's arm stifled Adair most of the night. Spalding gave up three hits and didn't allow a base on balls. He fanned seven.

    Jeremy Morris, besides scoring the winning run, had one other safety in the game.

    Marion will play Adair County at 6 p.m. Wednesday.
