GREG'S PICKS: Braves look to recover against rival Clarksville

Several teams setting themselves up for big runs



INDIANAPOLIS HERRON (10-9) at HENRYVILLE (0-19), 7:30 p.m.

• Series last 15 years: No meetings.

• Last year: Did not play.

• Analysis: It’s a shame the Hornets didn’t play the way it did against West Washington against Indianapolis International. They surely would have won. The records wouldn’t indicated it, but Henryville has a chance to win this one, too.

• Greg’s Pick: Herron 54, Henryville 49.


Darryl Baker, Jeffersonville
