Area Prep Baseball Report for Wednesday, April 22

In a marathon thriller, Country Day celebrated Senior Night by outscoring Riverside Academy 11-7 in 11 innings at Pontiff Playground in a District 8-1A contest Tuesday.

In a game that took nearly five hours to complete, John Overby settled the outcome, sending everyone home, literally, with a walk-off grand slam home run over the left field fence.

Dylan Simmons had a big night, going 4-for-5 with a triple while Dawson Simmons (3-3) was the winning pitcher.

The Cajuns (14-3, 2-1) will host Patterson tonight at 6 p.m. at Pontiff Playground while the Rebels fell to 8-19, 2-1 in district play.

At Wesley Barrow Stadium, Archbishop Rummel broke open a close game late, pulling away for a 10-1 victory over St. Augustine in a District 9-5A contest.

The Raiders took the lead with a run in the top of the first before St. Augustine tied it with a run in the bottom of the second. Rummel took a 2-1 lead with a run in the top of the third inning and it stayed that way until the sixth inning.

Rummel scored twice in that frame to make it 4-1 before the Raiders broke it open with six runs in the seventh inning.

University of New Orleans signee Jake Cabeceiras had two hits and an RBI while Aidan Champagne and Tyler Cook each had a hit and an RBI to pace a 10-hit attack. Every starter for Rummel had at least a hit in the game.

Michael Tant picked up the win, going five innings, allowing just an unearned run on three hits. Tant walked six and struck out five. Mikey Ryan finished with two shutout innings, allowing three hits.

Genesis Prosper took the loss, going four innings, allowing two runs (one earned) on just two hits. Prosper walked seven. Nijal Johnson pitched the final three innings, allowing eight runs on eight hits.

Johnson had a hit and an RBI for the Purple Knights while Louisiana Tech signee Kenya Huggins had a triple.

Rummel (16-10, 4-7) will face St. Augustine (13-14, 1-8) again on Friday.

Patrick Taylor handled Haynes Academy 13-3 in an 11-3A District game shortened to five innings by the mercy rule.

The Tigers jumped on top with three runs in the bottom of the first inning before the Yellow Jackets scored a run in the top of the second. Patrick Taylor answered with two runs in the bottom of the second to make it 5-1.

Haynes scored twice in the top of the third and it was 5-3 but Patrick Taylor scored four in the bottom of the third and it was 9-3. The Tigers finished it with two runs in the bottom of the fourth and two in the fifth.

Anson Mo-Billiot and Hunter Deemer each had two hits and three RBI while Grant Roberts added a hit and two RBI for the Tigers. Kinkaid Hinyup and Kyle Smith and Leonard Theophile each had two hits and an RBI for Patrick Taylor as the Tigers produce 15 hits.

Gavin Tranchina went the distance, allowing just three unearned runs on two hits to pick up the victory. Tranchina walked two and struck out 10, using 82 pitches.

Patrick Taylor (12-9, 3-2) and Haynes Academy (12-9, 2-3) will conclude the series Friday night.

Fisher shutout Newman 2-0 at Avenger Field in a key District 11-2A contest.

The Gators scored a run in the top of the first inning and a run in the top of the seventh inning and that was all they needed in support of Trey Usey, who scattered seven hits in a complete game victory. Usey walked two and struck out 10, using 107 pitches.

Matthew Creppel and Logan Wade each had two hits and an RBI for Fisher. Usey and Lane Creppel each added a pair of hits as Fisher tallied 10 hits in the game.

Fisher (16-3, 2-1) will host Ecole Classique Thursday at 5 p.m. while the Greenies (19-9, 0-2) have dropped four straight games.
