Breaux Bridge downs Lakeshore to advance to Class 4A baseball title game
It was unchartered territory for Lakeshore.
The No. 2 Titans reached the Allstate Sugar Bowl LSHAA state tournament for the first time in the young history of the school.
Perhaps the first time will be a learning experience.
The third-seeded Tigers scored three runs in the top of the second and never trailed in an 8-3 victory over the Titans in the Class 4A semifinals at McMurry Park in Sulphur Sunday afternoon.
Breaux Bridge controlled play throughout, steadily building on its early lead and the Tigers carried an 9-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning.
Cole Mouton had two hits, including a double and an RBI and Gage Colligan had a hit and an RBI for Breaux Bridge but the real star was Caleb Seroski, who starred on the mound and at the plate.
Seroski picked up the win, going the distance. He allowed three runs on seven hits, walking just one and striking out three. At the plate, Seroski had two hits and three RBI.
Chris Olivier took the loss, going five and one-third innings, allowing five earned runs on five hits. He walked two and struck out three. Devin Weilbacher was 2 for 2 with an RBI while Norris McClure had a hit and two RBI for the Titans (28-5).
Breaux Bridge (31-5) advances to the 4A championship game to take on No. 1 seed Tioga Tuesday at 5:30 p.m. Tioga defeated No. 4 Benton 2-0.
