St. Xavier Tigers (29-9) vs. Ballard Bruins (22-15-1)
Firday, May 29th
Varsity Game – 6:00 PM
7th Region Tournament Championship
Pleasure Ridge Park High School
Tiger Baseball meets Ballard again for the second time this season. The Bruins and Tigers met back on April 14 at Mueller Field, where St. Xavier defeated Ballard 2-0. Both teams have been playing a lot better baseball since that game, so it should be an incredible matchup tonight for a chance to go to the 2015 Rawlings/KHSAA Baseball State Tournament in Lexington next week.
Ballard last made it to the 7th Region Championship in 2009, while these Seniors were finishing up 6th Grade. The Bruins lost 1-0 to Trinity and hopefully they’ll take another loss from a Louisville Catholic high school again tonight.
We’ve said it multiple times, but it’s worth repeating. The Tigers are seeking their 5th straight trip to the state tournament and a defense of their championship title. The target is beginning to grow on the defending champs’ backs, but they’re used to it and so is our whole school. It won’t matter that Tiger Baseball isn’t ranked No. 1 in the polls, they’re the most talked about team and everybody’s always talking about them. Let’s talk about a 5th straight state tournament appearance after tonight.
