Imels help Indiana beat Kentucky
Norwell graduates Kaylee and Drew Imel of Bluffton helped Indiana maintain its dominance over Kentucky in the Indiana/Kentucky Junior Challenge Cup golf tournament held this week at Bardstown Country Club in Bardstown, Ky.
The Hoosier girls won the cup for the fourth straight year, while the boys extended their streak to five in a row. The girls posted a 408-427 victory and the boys a 544-558 advantage.
Both sides held a comfortable lead after the morning four ball matches, with the boys leading by eight shots and the girls by seven. Kaylee Imel and Emily Dixon led the girls in the morning, firing a seven-under par 65, while Trey Pfund and Drew Imel matched them with a 65 of their own.
In the afternoon alternate shot format, the Indiana girls upped their lead behind a four-under par 68 from Kristi Cardwell and Carleigh Silvers. The boys repeated their seven-shot morning advantage with former Cathedral High School teammates, Corey Ziedonis and Henry Plager, shooting seven-under par 65 for the low alternate shot total by three strokes.
Smokies top Parker, BayBears
MOBILE, Ala. — Jarrod Parker surrendered five runs for the second time in his last three starts, while the Mobile BayBears’ offense was quiet again in a 5-2 loss to the Tennessee Smokies Thursday night at Hank Aaron Stadium.
The BayBears have been outscored 33-7 in the first four games of this series. For the second consecutive game, the BayBears grabbed the lead in the bottom of the second, but the Smokies climbed back in the third.
James Adduci walked with one out, while Marquez Smith followed with a two-run home run to put the Smokies on top. Blake Lalli followed with an opposite-field homer to left, giving Tennessee a 3-1 lead. The two homers were the first given up by Parker in nearly 96 innings this season.
In the Smokies’ fourth, Welington Castillo led off with a single and took third on a hit by Nate Samson. A sacrifice fly by Casey Coleman (10-5) brought Castillo home to make it 4-1. Adduci drove in Samson with a single.
Parker (4-6, 3.68 ERA) allowed eight hits, walked one and struck out five in four innings.
