PADUCAH — Monday night’s Kentucky Region 1 Baseball Championship first-round matchup between Calloway County and state superpower McCracken County, in a way, resembled last year’s second-round meeting.

There was one big difference. Unlike last year, when the Lakers surprisingly took an early lead against the mighty Mustangs, as was the case again Monday, they were still very much alive by the time the game ended.
