The Boyle County bats were back after a slow Tuesday performance against Lincoln County.

The Rebels took care of business early and often in the reverse matchup in Stanford, where six different hitters had a multi-hit game in a 15-3 victory.

Boyle pitchers Blake Samons and Karson Thompson each tossed one inning, with Thompson giving up two unearned runs. Connor Samons finished the game, going the final five innings and allowing just one run.

At the plate, Boyle was paced by a stellar top of the order: Cam Yates was 4-for-4 with two doubles, four runs scored and two RBIs. Eli Glasscock was 3-for-5 with three runs scored and three RBIs. Karson Thompson was 3-for-4 with a home run, three runs and two RBIs. Jack Briese was 2-for-5 with a double and an RBI. Ethan Carter was 3-for-5 with a double and three RBIs. Collin Carver added a 2-for-2 performance with two runs scored and an RBI.

Sawyer Carrier again led Lincoln at the dish with a 2-for-3 performance and a run scored.

Lawson Hon recorded a 1-for-3 performance with a run scored; Wyatt Hon and Devin Lawhorn each contributed an RBI in the contest for Lincoln.

The Patriots host Somerset on Friday while Boyle turns its attention to the Louisville Invitational Tournament this weekend.
