The Lexington baseball team continues to play well as the team has put themselves in the drivers seat in the Ohio Cardinal Conference with an overall record of 14-1, 7-0 in the OCC.  Lex head coach Jeff Strickler has been very happy with the team's production at the plate.  Hitters Logan Bastin, Mason Willeke, Brody Basilone and Zach Sterry continue to produce at key times when runners are in scoring position. 

On Tuesday evening against Madison, Lex pounded out 12 hits scoring four runs in their half of the fourth inning, then getting three more in the fifth en route to a 9-3 win over the Rams.  Madison didn't help themselves committing three errors in the field while Lex had two.  The Rams Kyle Blust, Dalton Fix and Bo Curvin had two hits each.  Madison stands at 5-9 overall and is coming off a tough weekend after playing the likes of Grafton Midview and Cleveland St.Ignatius.  Coach Doug Rickert is hoping his team will hit better, though the Rams did come up with eight hits Tuesday evening.

Lex junior Zach Temple picked up the win for Lexington with six strike outs, no walks, while Madison junior Blake Lampert took the loss with three "K's" and one walk.
