BUCKNER – You don't beat one of the state's top teams without a few bumps and bruises to show for it.
Oldham County's Tanner Hennings had a big bruise Monday night. The senior left-fielder took a pitch off the bottom half of his right thumb in the bottom of the fifth. Hennings said after the game he thought it was broken.
One inning later, right after St. Xavier had turned a 7-2 OC lead into a 7-6 margin, Hennings got a big two-RBI single to push the Colonel lead to 9-6.
