    The Eighth Region first round matchup between Shelby County and Henry County played Monday at Oldham County was a pitcher’s duel that came down to a wild play. Two Henry County errors on one play allowed the winning run to cross the plate in the bottom of the seventh inning.

    Shelby County pitcher Caleb Collins pitched a one-hitter and allowed only two base runners the entire game. 

    Henry County pitcher Jaydon Berry was nearly as good. Berry scattered six hits over the seven innings and allowed one unearned run.
