“In game one, we played lackadaisical,” Bayou head coach Will Reed said. “We didn’t have good ABs in the box and didn’t compete real well. It wasn’t a good game.
“We had our huddle in between games, stuck some new guys in the line-up and they competed well and competed their tails off. They did a good job to come back after a tough loss in game one. I’m proud of the way they fought back in game two.”
In the first game, Trey Williamson pitched the first three innings and took the loss for Bayou, as he gave up three runs, one earned, on three hits with three walks and a strikeout. Brett Burrell tossed the last four innings and gave up two runs, one earned, on two hits with four strikeouts and a walk.
Zach Willingham tagged a hit, drove in a run and scored a run to lead Bayou at the plate, followed by Paul O'Neal with a hit and a RBI and Hayes Holman with a hit and a run scored.
In the second game, Holman earned the win for Bayou on the mound as he went all four innings, giving up eight hits with a strikeout and three walks.
At the plate for Bayou, John Thomas Aguzzi tagged two hits including a double with a run, followed by senior Tyler Thweatt with a double and two runs scored, Brett Burrell with a hit, two RBIs and two runs scored, Williamson with a hit and a RBI, Lance Dalton with a hit, a RBI and two runs scored and Paul O’Neal with a hit, a RBI and a run scored.
