Danville's offense is still a work in progress, but the Admirals made some progress in the early innings Saturday. The Admirals got all but one of their hits in the first three innings, producing all the runs they would need to defeat Rockcastle County 5-2 at Admiral Field. They bounced back at the plate after getting only two hits Thursday in a win over Mercer County, but coach Paul Morse said he wanted to see them swing the bats for seven innings the way they did for three. “We got seven of our eight hits in the first three innings, and then it seemed like we kind of thought the game was 10 to 1 instead of 5 to 1,” Morse said.
