Ashland KY  - - The Colts come out of the gate quickly scoring 3 runs in the top of the 1st inning sending 8 batters to the plate and scoring 3 runs on 3 hits, an error, and two walks.  The lead was short-lived as the Portsmouth 23 Bluejays quickly erased the lead by scoring 5 runs in the bottom half of the first inning.

Reliever Ryan Schwartz works 2.2 innings of one-hit baseball but walks three and gives up one earned run. Closer Lucas Foglesgong works 0.1 innings and throws 2 pitches to close the door on the Bluejays.

At the plate, the Colts continue to hit the baseball ending the game with 11 hits on the day.
