On Friday, the Rebels pulled out a gutsy 14-13 win over Austin at home. On Saturday, Southwestern split with Scottsburg, winning 3-1 in game one and falling 11-1 in game two.
Southwestern trailed Austin 8-0 after two innings but came all the way back, scoring on run in the second, six in the third and seven in the fourth to take a 14-10 lead. The Rebels then held on as the Eagles made a frantic comeback.

Trimble beats Shawe on walk-off
Brayden Wilson’s RBI single in the bottom of the seventh lifted Trimble County to a 1-0 win over visiting Shawe in baseball Friday in Bedford.
Trimble’s Dalton Penick and Shawe’s Hunter Kennett dueled for six scoreless innings, allowing a combined five hits, before the Raiders finally broke through against reliever Wyatt Nichter in the seventh.
Spencer Stark led off the seventh for Trimble with a single, stole second and then went to third on Cameron Blackaby’s single. Wilson then singled to right to score Stark with the game-winner.
Trimble was held to just one hit through six innings — a double by Jesse Peak — and finished with four hits. Penick (2-2) allowed just four hits and struck out 12 while walking three in seven innings to get the win.
Charlie Liter, Jacob Hertz, Kennett, Christian Whitham and Casey Hill each had singles for Shawe. Kennett struck out eight and walked two while pitching six hitless innings. Nichter took the loss without getting an out.
“Really tough loss tonight. I especially feel badly for Hunter. He pitched a heck of a game. He just ran out of gas,” Shawe coach Geno Pawlak said. “Give Trimble credit. They made a couple of more plays than we did.”
Both teams played on Saturday with Shawe picking up its second win of the season — a 19-0 blowout of Crothersville — and Trimble losing 18-10 to Highlands Latin in a high-scoring affair. Nichter (2-2) came back from Friday’s loss to toss a five-inning no-hitter with 10 strikeouts. He took a perfect game into the fifth when the Tigers put two runners on base on errors but Nichter struck out two of the next three batters to finish the game.
“Wyatt really pitched well. He had 10 strikeouts. However what I am most proud of was the fact that he didn’t walk anyone,” Pawlak said. “Crothersville was missing two starters and was down to just nine players. If we do see them again in sectionals, I’m sure they will be a different team.”
Shawe collected 15 hits in the game with Kennett, Eric Liu and Liter each collecting three hits and driving in two runs. Philip Kahn had two hits and an RBI, Whitham had two hits and two runs scored, and Hertz and Nichter each added a hit and an RBI.
Trimble out-hit Highlands 15-11 but committed seven errors in the loss. Penick was 3-for-4 with a triple and three RBIs, Bryce Rose was 3-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI, J.T. Wilcoxson was 3-for-5 with a double, two RBIs and three runs scored, and Dylan Jennings had two hits and scored a run.
Bryce Rose (2-5) allowed eight earned runs on nine hits in five innings and suffered the loss.
Shawe, now 1-8 on the season, hosted Switzerland County on Monday and hosts Jac-Cen-Del on Wednesday.
Trimble, now 4-10 on the season, hosts Eminence today and heads to Eminence on Thursday.
