Campbellsville High school took advantage of five Taylor County errors and rolled past the visiting Cardinals 9-1 on Tuesday afternoon.

After Taylor County failed to score in the first when its first two hitters (Chance Walls and Chase Roution) reached on walks, the Eagles tallied two unearned runs in the second and never trailed.

Aaron Schwoebel's one-out single moved Taylor Levi, who reached on an error to third where he scored on Adam Simmons' infield single.

A walk to Kyle Martin loaded the bases and Tyler Finn's free pass made it 2-0.

The Cardinals sliced the deficit in half with a single tally in the third when Wes Campbell's double knocked in Walls.

The Eagles got that run back in the bottom of the frame when Ben Janes' infield out plated Martin, who had doubled.

CHS blew the game wide open with a six spot in the sixth inning.

Martin was hit by a pitch to start the rally. Finn walked before Janes sacrificed the runners to second and third.

After an intentional pass to Blake Milby, Zach Altman walked with the bases filled to make it 4-1.

A three-run double by Levi off the left-field wall made it 7-1. Another TCHS made the Eagle cushion 8-1 before Simmons' single to left closed out the scoring.

Chris Holmes went the distance for Campbellsville, allowing only four hits (two doubles by Campbell and singles to Matt Burress and Tyler Yates).

Levi, Schwoebel and Simmons had two-hit games for coach Kirby Smith's Eagles while Milby and Martin had one apiece.
