The Duelers lost two home games, 5-3 to the Owensboro RiverDawgs on Friday night and 12-9 to the Railroaders in 10 innings on Saturday night.

Franklin was able to bookend their week with an 8-1 win at Owensboro on Sunday to win their first and final games of the week.

After a day off on Monday, the Duelers were on the road Tuesday night at the Henderson Flash. Then they will play four of their next five games at Greg Shelton Field starting on Wednesday against the Paducah Chiefs, Thursday against the Hoptown Hoppers and on Friday against the Railroaders.
