Maroons won 3-0 earlier this year
The Maroons beat Danville 3-0 earlier this year, and Morse said he expects to see Pulaski ace, and Mr. Baseball candidate, Cole Draughn on the mound tonight.
"Hopefully we'll have a little motivation, a little revenge factor going on," Morse said. "They have real solid pitching and a really good defense and they have been scoring enough runs to win. They've got the most tradition, lately, in our region and a lot of experience in terms of just being there. We just want to stay close to them and give ourselves a shot late in the game."
Joey Beldon will pitch for Danville. Beldon gave up three runs on five hits in the earlier loss to Pulaski, but all three runs and four of the five hits came in the fifth inning.
"Joey pitched well the first time against them," Morse said. "They just put a couple of hits together."
Danville won its fourth game of the year against Burgin as the Bulldogs mustered just three hits against Danville pitcher Deangleo Durham. Durham pitched four innings, striking out six and walking one. Jeremy Potts pitched the final inning and struck out two.
Lynn goes 4-for-4
Catcher C.J. Lynn was 4-for-4 with a triple and four RBIs as all nine Admirals' starters had at least one hit. Durham had three hits, including a double, and had four RBIs. Davis Teater had two triples.
Danville scored four times in the first against Burgin starter Zack Gross, and Morse said that was a key.
"When you play a team more than a couple of times, and you have success against them, you want to get on them early and remind them that things are, hopefully, going to go the way they did in previous games," Morse said.
"Zack was mixing his pitches up and throwing the ball well, and our guys came out and swung the bats."
Gross gave up nine runs in 2 1/3 innings, striking out two and walking two. Josh Carey came on in the fourth inning and Bobby Wylie finished the game for the Bulldogs.
