Garrard County erased Danville's early lead with a four-run sixth inning, and the Golden Lions held on in the late innings for a 9-8 win Monday at Danville.
The Admirals led 3-0 after two of their first three batters homered, but they couldn't come back after Garrard used its big inning to go up 8-3.
"They came out and played hard the whole game; our players just seemed a little lackadaisical," Danville coach Paul Morse said. "We just kind of put it on cruise until the fifth inning and got behind and didn't have enough time to catch up."
Danville's three pitchers walked eight batters and hit two more.
"We put a lot of extra baserunners on, and that cost us," he said. "And we had a lot of mental errors that cost us three other runs, guys getting picked off and making silly mistakes."
