Thies pitches Cape Legion team past Calvert City

John Thies pitched his fourth complete game of the season Monday, helping lift the Ford & Sons American Legion baseball team past Calvert City, Ky., 8-5 at Capaha Park.

Thies improved to 4-1 after he gave up four hits and four earned runs in nine innings.

Matt Wulfers was 3-for-3 with a double, triple and two RBIs, and teammate Dustin Tatum was 3-for-3 with a triple and a stolen base -- and eighth-inning slide into home plate for the final run. Seth Hudson was 1-for-5 and drove in the go-ahead run in the seventh.

Calvert City (11-11) scored four runs in the third to take an early lead, but Cape (11-9) rallied to score three in the seventh and led 7-5.

Cape goes to Paducah, Ky., for a game today.
