Leopards Remain Alone in First on Both Diamonds
Louisville 13, Canton South 9
Louisville scored eight runs in the first two innings and staved off a Canton South comeback in earning a 13-9 win. The victory keeps the Leopards alone in first place by a game and avoids what would have been a five-way tie in the loss column for the NBC lead. Chad Neff led the Leopards offense going 3-for-4 with a home run and four runs driven in. Mike Kelly started the game on the mound for Louisville pitching six innings, striking out nine, walking none, and giving up three earned runs. Riley Groves and Jeremy White also pounded the Wildcats for two hits each and every single Leopard hitter scored in the contest.

Chandler Rice cracked a three-run homer in the first inning and the Lady Leopards never looked back as they crushed the Marlington Dukes 11-1 in five innings. The victory was Louisville’s fourth win by mercy during the 2011 campaign. On the rubber, Brittany Flanigan gave up a run in the opening inning before shutting down the Dukes the rest of the way to earn her tenth victory of the season. Emily Isla also went 3-for-3 with two doubles, Jordan Monnot added a pair of doubles that brought two runs home, and Desi Givens singled aboard twice as well. The Lady Leps pounded out 13 hits as a team and remain undefeated against Stark County opponents.
