    SHELBYVILLE -- The Collins and Anderson County baseball teams could spent their entire summers at Kings Island and not have a roller coaster ride like they experienced Tuesday night.

  • Spring youth hunt prizes
  • Mercer, Franklin cash in on...

    Through nine games of its 2016 season, the story remains unchanged: Anderson County is improving, but mistakes have kept the Bearcars winless.

    The latest chapter came at Mercer County Friday where four Anderson errors allowd the 17th-ranked Titans to claim a 5-1 win.

    Anderson squandered a stellar pitching performance from sophomore Timmy Rogers, who gave up one earned run in four innings of work. Four Anderson errors led to three unearned Mercer runs.

    Mia Aldridge came on to pitch in the fourth inning to get the win.
